The Building Capacity and Establishing Sustainable Supports Summit includes two ½ day sessions that will bring together District Teams to include but not limited to; Special Education Director/preK Special Education & Early Childhood Coordinator/Transition Coordinator/Asst. Superintendent - for planning on how to increase capacity building and establish sustainable supports through their established goals while avoiding common mistakes with one time/supplemental funding.
The Bureau of Special Education in conjunction with many partners, are offering an opportunity for District Teams to gather together and discuss, develop and plan for managing increased resources and opportunities. Speakers will address budgeting, infrastructure, effective use of resources, specific strategies, and tips on avoiding common errors.
The District Team will identify a team leader (Note: all team members must register individually on the virtual platform). The team will gather together in a central location within the District, and through the virtual platform will join the Summit, in order to examine how to braid resources and build a functional plan with a management timeline. This planning is necessary for success as well as to avoid common mistakes that lead to not expending all the resources available.
The District Team can expect to come away with a plan that establishes a structured way to expend resources and ideas for sustained support opportunities for learning while creating LEA launch pads for recovery and improved outcomes for all students including those with disabilities.
