Intended Audience: Directors of Special Education, Special Education Coordinators, Superintendents
Date: August 26, 2010
This year, at the Commissioner's suggestion, we are beginning the webinars in September, instead of waiting until October! So on Thursday, September 2, 2010, at 11:45 a.m., please join me for the first monthly webinar of the current school year.
Submit questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org (indicate "Webinar Question" in the subject line). Please ensure your questions are not specific individual children questions, but rather more systemic in nature.
To participate in the webinar, go to: http://desemo.na3.acrobat.com/r85403388/, click on "Enter as a Guest." We suggest you use your county district code (you may also include your first and/or last name), then select "Enter Room."
For the testing site and/or archive for the monthly webinars, go to: http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/mnthlywebstrmHAL.html. We have discovered some people with wireless computer connections cannot access the live webinar without serious quality issues and our best recommendation is to use a computer that is not wireless.
The topics to be covered during this webinar include, but are not limited to: Consultation with nonpublic/private schools, "compliance" things to do this time of year, MAP-A/MAP eligibility and accommodations, transfer procedures, speech implementer model, and an assortment of other items.
If you need an accommodation as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act to participate in this webinar, please call 573-751-5739 at least 48 hours in advance of the webinar to discuss the accommodation.
I welcome your ideas for future topics. Please email those ideas to the email address listed above.
