How to Schedule and Host a FCSN/PTIC Workshop

Here are some helpful tips on how to schedule and host one of our workshops. 

  1. PLAN AHEAD!
  • You need time to advertise and allow people to “Save the Date”.
  • Is there a neighboring SEPAC who wants to co-host?
  1. ARRANGE LOGISTICS
  • Check your school district calendar to avoid major conflicts.
  • Choose both a preferred date and an alternative date specific for each workshop request.
  • Determine a two-hour timeframe that best works for your audience.
  1. ARRANGE FOR PAYMENT
  • Most PTI workshops are $300. Please work with your school district to see if they need to create a purchase order for your workshop, and if so, email the purchase order to workshops@fcsn.org.
  • Check with MassPAC about your SEPAC’s current level of membership – masspac@fcsn.org.
  • A MassPAC PLUS level of membership entitles a District/SEPAC to one Basic Rights workshop at no cost.
  • MassPAC PLUS members have the option to purchase one additional PTI workshop at half-price or $150.
  1. REQUEST A WORKSHOP
  • Use FCSN’s online system (Link is below).
  • At this time we can only hold one workshop virtually a night, Monday-Thursday. Dates no longer available are posted on the workshop request page.
  • Please allow at least two months’ time between the request and the requested workshop dates.
  • Once we have a presenter, a confirmation of the workshop will be sent with workshop materials. This process can take up to 2 weeks. We kindly ask that you keep this in mind when requesting your dates. If you submit a request with less than a month’s time then we cannot guarantee that we will be able to find a presenter for your preferred date. 
  1. ACTIVELY PROMOTE AND SHARE THE WORKSHOP FLYER
  • Add your SEPAC contact information to our workshop flyer and publicize the workshop.
  • Invite parents, local neighboring SEPACs, your special education administrator, and other educators.
