New Directors Meetings 2021-2022 Tentative Topics

To support new special education leaders as they strive to meet the challenges of their new positions, in 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 are hosting a year-long virtual meeting opportunity for the 2021-22 school year. This event is geared toward first and second-year Directors of Special Education and Pupil Services, Special Education Coordinators, or Designees. If you are an experienced leader, please pass this information on to a colleague who is new to the role. DPI staff members, along with WCASS and your local Regional Special Education Network Directors (RSN), will present sessions addressing a variety of procedural and relevant topics.
