Subject: SELS2 Special Education E-mail Group

Intended Audience: Anyone interested in receiving email messages from the Division of Special Education

Date: April 20, 2007

In February 2000, the Division of Special Education created the Special Education Listserve (SELS). It has been and continues to be a limited email group (with listserve being a misnomer since it really isn't a listserve) available to only one contact person per school district/responsible public agency. It is used by the Division to disseminate important special education information concerning funding, compliance, data collection, professional development, etc.

The Division has now created a second email group called SELS2. This email group is open to anyone wanting to subscribe. It will allow subscribers to receive the EXACT same messages as subscribers to SELS.  By creating this second email group, all constituents interested in special education will have the opportunity to receive the Division's email messages, not just one contact per school district/responsible public agency. It also allows DESE to maintain the ability to make sure that every district has at least one contact person per district receiving these messages. Messages are from DESE only and may only be posted by the manager (Lina Browner, Division of Special Education).  Members may not post messages to either SELS or SELS2.

We are asking districts and stakeholder groups to disseminate information about SELS2 to principals, teachers, parents, and any others who they feel may be interested in subscribing to SELS2.

Those interested in subscribing to SELS2 can do so by going to the following website http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/sels2_subscribe.html.

Messages are also kept in an archive located at:  http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Listserv_Archives.html click on the Archive button.

If you have questions about either SELS or SELS2, contact Lina Browner, Executive Assistant for the Division at Lina.Browner@dese.mo.gov or at 573-751-5739.
