Intended Audience: Directors of Special Education, Special Education Coordinators, Superintendents

Date: September 27, 2007

On Wednesday, October 3, 2007, at 11:45 a.m. I hope you will join me for the first monthly webstream. This will be a way for me to communicate directly with you. My intent is to use approximately 15 minutes to share information with you and then open up the question feature so you can type your questions on-line. I will select questions to answer on-line, and other questions will be answered on our web site subsequent to the webstream. We will end at 12:45 p.m. unless discussion on the questions is exhausted before then. I encourage you to submit questions beginning immediately to the following e-mail address:  sped.webstream@dese.mo.gov.

Please ensure your questions are not specific individual children questions, but rather are more systemic in nature.

To participate in the webstream, you will want to first visit the test site, to ensure you can access the real thing on your system. You may need to work with your computer technology staff on issues related to filters, firewalls, or bandwith. The test site is at:
https://admin.breezecentral.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm.
(NOTE: if the test URL listed above gets broken, please delete any extra spaces/line breaks to reconnect the URL address. The URL should end with .htm. If any of these last three letters are missing from the URL, it will not work.)

To participate in the actual webstream, you will want to go to the following website: http://desemo.acrobat.com/r52326721/. You will need to enter as a guest by typing in your first and last name and selecting "Enter Room."

Please understand this is the very first time we are attempting something like this; we ask your patience. If you experience problems viewing the video of me, hearing the audio, or experience long delays in speech or frozen frames, you may want to sign off and instead view the archived version on our web site subsequent to the scheduled webstream.

The topic for the first webstream is: MAP, MAP-A, the new 2% modified assessment option under NCLB, and parent observations under FERPA and HIPAA.

I welcome your ideas for future topics. Please e-mail those ideas to the webstream e-mail address listed above.
