New Special Education Administrator Network

New Special Education Administrator Network



This series of meetings are designed for special education administrators and supervisors beginning their first year in this role. The format will enable administrators to network with fellow colleagues to build capacity in their new positions. Administrators will gain functional, fundamental information, increase their knowledge of federal and state requirements, and find resources to support their efforts to guide staff and increase outcomes for students with disabilities. These meetings will be facilitated by Jackie Jacoby, M.Ed., and Laura Low, M.A.

Note: Participants are encouraged to attend the general Special Education Administrator Meetings as well.
