Attract, Prepare, and Retain (APR) is a priority of Pennsylvania's Bureau of Special Education (BSE) with a primary focus that is three-fold:
§ To Attract skilled, compassionate, and diverse individuals to the varied career options within the field of special education,
§ To Prepare special education personnel by building capacity through targeted professional development, technical assistance, and supports, and
§ To Retain special education personnel long-term through the collective efforts of federal, state, and local entities.
