The Disability Resource Center hosted its Priority Enrollment Program (PEP) Day on March 4, 2017. DRC PEP Day is an orientation program for incoming high school students who have IEPs or 504 plans. In addition to Skyline College orientation and multiple measure placements, the 44 students who attended also learned about DRC services, connected with Financial Aid and Learning Communities, and received a demo of assistive technology. Parents were also welcome at the event and they participated in a workshop entitled “How to Support Your Child’s College Transition.” This year the DRC counselor, Melissa Matthews, has been holding follow up meetings with attendees at their high schools. DRC is thrilled to help these students get a jump on their college experience at Skyline!
