Special Education

Special Education Leadership Institutes registration information coming soon!

The Special Education Planning and Policy (SEPP) unit is working with four contractors to offer training for special education district leadership staff. Each leadership institute is free to participants and will have at least 62 contact hours over the course of the school year. Highlights of the institutes include opportunities to network; chances to apply concepts of systemic change to improve student outcomes; and better understand legal requirements and the implementation of evidence-based practices for creating inclusive environments.

The four Special Education Leadership Institutes are as follows:

  1. New Special Education Directors (less than five years of experience) will be provided by ACCEPT Collaborative. (Save the date: Cohort begins on August 12, 2019.)
  2. Experienced Special Education Directors will be provided by Teachers21 and EDCO.
  3. Special Education Team Leader will be provided by the Collaborative for Educational Services.
  4. Special Education Early Childhood Coordinators will be provided by AnLar.
