This year we have once again purchased the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) satellite series for school districts. We hope you will take advantage of this excellent and convenient resource for professional development.

The conference series for 2007-08 includes telecasts that feature nationally recognized experts discussing topics associated with this year's theme "High School and Beyond: Strategies and Opportunities for Positive Results."

This series provides a convenient professional development opportunity for a variety of stakeholders in both general education and special education. Participants may watch the conference series offerings using several viewing options. Printed handouts are available from the website listed below for presentations in the series. Reproduction of media versions and printed materials is allowed for in-state educational non-commercial use. You may not charge participants to participate or for printed materials.

Traditional Satellite downlink - will be available for those who would like to receive the series live using a satellite downlink. This method provides group participation in live professional development.  Recording and reproduction of the presentations (VHS, DVD, etc) is allowed in unlimited quantities for future professional development.

Streaming Media - will allow participants to watch the conference from their computer at their convenience an unlimited number of times. This option also provides streaming media viewing for an unlimited number of people (computers). Streaming media will not be available for approximately one week after the satellite downlink version of each session to allow NASDSE adequate time to prepare access. Streaming media versions will be available from their release date until the close of the 2008-09 series offering.

Additional information on conference titles, dates, times, and connection procedures can be accessed at:
http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/EffectivePractices/calendar.html.  Technical information to facilitate accessing streaming media versions is not posted until at least one week after each satellite downlink presentation has concluded. The information for streaming media access will be added to the web address above as soon as it is available.
