8. The Special Education Teacher Pipeline in Pennsylvania
Wednesday March 01, 2023 2:45 PM - 3:45 PM - Webinar
This session will provide data about the special education teacher pipeline in Pennsylvania, focusing on patterns of special educator workforce entry, retention, and shortages across the state’s licensure pathways using statewide data provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. We will also discuss policy initiatives associated with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Special Education’s Attract, Prepare, and Retain projects that are designed to influence these patterns in the state's special education teacher pipeline.
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
