This initiative is designed to provide new administrators in special education with the skills and knowledge that are critical to success in their challenging, complex positions.  Cohorts of eight to ten participants are selected each year from educators who have obtained appropriate certification and who wish to expand upon the skills and experiences gained from their initial months in the position.

Participants attend five full day training sessions scheduled throughout the school year.  All sessions are led by a group of directors with extensive administrative experience and demonstrated skill in dealing with special education issues.  Topics of each session are planned to coincide with the needs of new administrators:

 September  Orientation - Getting Started as a New Administrator: Executive & Management Skills
 November    Recruitment, Retain, Evaluate, and Supervise
 January       Budget Development, Grant Writing
 February Legal Issues
 April                Parent and Community Relations



The application process begins mid-June 2015.  If you know someone who would benefit from this initiative, please share this information.
