Special Education Leadership

Leadership-logo.jpgDue to COVID-19, all trainings will be held virtually through December 2020.  Please check back for updates relating to Spring 2021 offerings

The Leadership Initiative is a statewide effort that strives to Attract, Prepare and Retain special education leaders across the Commonwealth as they administer programs and services for students with disabilities. Special education administrators are expected to be knowledgeable about effective programming for students with disabilities, as well as special education law.

The theme of “Achieving Balance: Managing Compliance, Leading Improvement" ensures that programs and services conform to both federal and state regulations while also improving student results as a critical component of the work scope.
