Disability Services Events
Engage with Disability Services
There are a variety of opportunities throughout the year in which Disability Services connects with students, staff, and faculty across the district. We offer resources, training, and support.
Students who are just getting started with Disability Services will need to attend an information session.
Featured Event - Spring Transition Information Night
This spring each of our campuses will host an information night for transitioning high school students and their families. We will have a Disability Services counselor as well as an adaptive technology contact and a panel of current PCC students to provide an overview and answer any questions.
