What We Do at the Parent Network
Welcome to the Parent Network of the Capital Region (PNCR). The PNCR is one of thirteen special education parent technical assistance centers throughout the state, funded by a grant from the New York State Education Department. The mission of the PNCR is to provide parents with the knowledge, skills, resources and support to effectively advocate for their children and to facilitate productive relationships between parents and school districts for the benefit of students with disabilities. We offer these services free-of-charge to parents, service providers, disability organizations and schools.
The PNCR serves a thirteen county area of the Capital Region that includes Albany, Columbia, Essex, Fulton, Greene, Hamilton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Washington and Warren Counties.
All of the PNCR's services are provided free of charge and are provided in a highly confidential and respectful manner.
