In less than one week, WA-CASE members are invited to join the ECSEL (Expanding Capacity for Special Education Leadership) Administrator Program/Community at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma as we celebrate another year of working together to support special education in Washington! In addition to annual updates on our work, special guest Dr. Sugai will coordinate a discussion of LSEA leadership for implementing multi-tiered systems. Reception details are below.
We hope to see all of you there!
CASE is so proud of the relationship we have had with the OSERS and OSEP leaders over the years and certainly the current leadership is no exception. But I would also like to spotlight Dr. John Draper. He kicked off the 2018 SELS conference by truly challenging us to be more positive as we speak about Public Schools. I was so proud of the four CASE units who stepped up to sponsor Dr. Draper for SELS : our units in IL (IAASE); KA (KASEA); MO (MO-CASE) and PA (PACASE). Dr. Draper will be bringing an equally great message to our folks in Biloxi. You are not going to want to miss his engaging, practical, fun, yet serious presentation! Check out the very preliminary schedule. So why not register now so you can join us in Biloxi, Mississippi, on Nov. 8-10! Don’t forget to also make your room reservation! You can get more information from the CASE website.
At the WASA/OSPI Special Education Conference (more information), Washington CASE will be co-sponsoring a reception for new ECSEL (Expanding Capacity for Special Education Leadership) Graduates. The reception will take place in the evening following the New Director Preconference on August 1, 2018.
Last summer, we told you what was happening in Washington D.C. concerning education policy in a free member webinar, and we’re ready to do it again! Join us on July 26 for this year’s “What’s Happening in Washington” webinar, where you’ll learn about the current education policies under consideration by the current administration and Congress. You’ll also find out how you can advocate for the success of our field and the children and youth we serve. This webinar is free for CEC members—register now!*
