2023 Pennsylvania Department of Education (In-Person) Conference
28. Creating Pathways to Attract and Retain Special Education Personnel Across Pennsylvania
Thursday March 02, 2023 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM - Hershey Lodge and Convention Center
Attracting individuals to the field of special education and then retaining them long-term has been a focus across the nation and here at home. In this session, participants will discover the pathways that are underway across Pennsylvania to provide individuals with opportunities for special education personnel preparation, workforce entry, and early career retention. Hear from those who are creating these recruitment pathways, as well as those who are seeking out these opportunities – some before even graduating from high school.
General education and special education administrators and teachers, paraprofessionals, school psychologists, professional development staff, and families of students with disabilities are encouraged to attend.
Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individuals who have special needs as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act and who need assistance at this event. Contact: Debra Jordan at (610) 878-7224 or firstname.lastname@example.org
