Monthly TA Calls
We enjoyed seeing all of you at our Special Education Administrators’ Academy this month and wanted you to know we do not have a scheduled call for September. Our next call will be October 25, 2018. If you have questions that you would like addressed on the next monthly call or would like to submit ideas for future topics, please provide that information to us by filling Monthly Calls Questionnaire/Ideas Form
Monthly TA calls are recorded and archived on the special education website on the Monthly Call page. As a reminder, we will be using ZOOM for the calls and participants will be able to see and hear the presenters, but will not be able to be heard or seen on the webcam. Pre-submitted questions will be answered during the call, so if you would like to submit questions for the August call or submit ideas for future topics, please provide that information to us by clicking here.
