Intended Audience: Superintendents

Date: October 11, 2007

This year, instead of conducting regional trainings/workshops on the new requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), we instead prepared a series of webstream presentations. This will avoid your staff having to travel in order to receive the information and will allow for convenience in viewing it in parts.

However, to accomplish this, we need superintendents to cooperate to ensure staff have ample time to review the information. I would appreciate anything you can do to make this happen.

The topics are varied and may be appropriate for several different staff members. The information was sent out in a previous SELS message, but I have included it below for your information and convenience:

Resources and handouts are available for each session. In order to access the webstream presentations and handouts, please visit this
website: http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/wsintro.html.

Topics in this series include:

* Discipline Procedures for Children with Disabilities
* Data Collection and Reporting in Special Education
* Special Education Finance
* Administration of Special Education Programs
* The Complaint System under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
* Response to Intervention (RtI) and Early Intervening Services (EIS)
* PostSecondary Transition
* Special Education Process-Changes in IDEA 2004

The Division of Special Education welcomes questions that participants may have after viewing the presentations. Questions can be submitted to webreplyspe@dese.mo.gov or by calling 573-751-0699.
