Year 2 – New Special Education Administrator Networking Group

Year 2 – New Special Education Administrator Networking Group



This series of meetings is designed for special education administrators and supervisors who participated in the New Special Administrator Meetings during the 2018-2019 school year. Participants will move from compliance to best practice to improve coaching, leadership, and implementation of evidence-based practices that positively impact students with disabilities.

Participants will learn how to lead teachers by utilizing coaching techniques that promote a positive culture and climate, and encourage the effective collaboration of teachers. Participants will work together to build capacity by creating peer-to-peer partnerships while networking through meetings and social media platforms.

Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch for networking and question and answer time, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. The room will be reserved for the remainder of the day for those who would like additional time to collaborate with colleagues or consultants.

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.
