Weekly Update 9.28.2017

Dearest SPED Directors,
Attached is your latest Weekly Update.  Here are a few things not to miss:
  • TEA has extended the timeline to participate in the IEP Analysis Project for districts to express interest to participate by sharing their documentation. As we have found out more about this project, we think it is worth considering.  There is no cost to you, the LEA will receive payment for participation, and the results will be totally anonymous to anyone but the LEA.  Consider it.
  • The weblink to the SPED Director Webinar is posted.
  • GCASE Fall Forum registration is attached
Request from a fellow Director:
One of your fellow directors is in the process of creating a district Special Education Advisory Committee.  She would like some guidance from those of you who have gone down this path on the following issues:
  • < >
    Selection process for members
  • Length of term
  • Responsibility of committee
  • Relationship of committee with School Board
  • Agenda items
  • Format of meeting
If you would be so kind to share information about your SPED advisory committee or similar committees, please send it along with any sample documents and I will share with the other directors.  It could be that we have several LEAs in this same development process.  Thank you for your support of each other!!!  I love this about you…your generosity!!
