2020-21 Webinar Schedule

This page is an archive of opportunities from the 2020-21 school year to support new special education leaders as they strive to meet the challenges of their new positions. These opportunities were a collaboration with Wisconsin Council of Administrators of Special Services (WCASS), the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) Special Education and Student Services Prevention and Wellness Teams. Opportunities were geared toward first and second-year Directors of Special Education and Pupil Services, Special Education Coordinators, or Designees. DPI staff members, along with WCASS and your local Regional Special Education Network Directors (RSN), presented sessions addressing a variety of procedural and relevant topics.
