SERC is pleased to host a statewide calendar of training and other learning events specific to the topic area of special education. This calendar is intended for families, educators, and community members as a tool to locate special education-related training opportunities offered by family advocacy centers and professional development providers throughout Connecticut.
Any organization or local school district that wishes to post its training or professional learning opportunity in the calendar should submit an Event Submission Form. Requests will be reviewed to ensure that the appropriate information has been provided and that the posting falls within the scope and purpose of the calendar. SERC events related to special education are also posted within the calendar.
Anyone with questions about specific events is encouraged to directly contact the organization sponsoring the event. SERC serves as a warehouse for the calendar, so anyone with questions about the calendar can call SERC at 860-632-1485.
