About the NASDSE Professional Development Conference Series

One of the major responsibilities of State Education Agencies is to support local districts build their capacity to deliver high-quality services to improve student outcomes. The National Association of State Directors of Special Education's (NASDSE) ongoing work with the U.S Department of Education, national organizations, technical assistance providers, respected researchers and other stakeholders uniquely positions us to identify and deliver content on the most relevant issues affecting teachers and administrators. Through four, two-hour sessions, the NASDSE Professional Development Series will deliver thought-provoking, professional development on the most current topics that can be easily integrated with the professional development services of any state.
