In response to the needs of the field, the Bureau of Special Education (BSE) in partnership with the State Education Resource Center (SERC), has developed a series of ten Special Education Professional Learning Modules with three central themes running throughout the series: individualized education program (IEP) development (for compliance and quality), culturally responsive family-school partnerships, and state and federal special education regulations. Several of these professional learning opportunities will be o ered prior to the close of this school year, but all will be o ered during the 2017-2018 school year. With some modules o ered as overviews and others as in-depth learning opportunities, this new series o ers guidance on many of the most sought-after topics in special education. Intentionally designed with a target audience that includes general educators/school leaders as critical partners, participants will return to their districts with tools and strategies ready for implementation to build sta capacity and to better support students with disabilities and their families.
