This 5-day academy is designed for new District Level Special Education Administrators with less than three years’ experience and as well as Building Level Coordinators new to their position. Level I Academy will provide participants with a solid foundation, skills and knowledge in the ever changing and complex field of Special Education Administration. This year the Level I Academy will be piloting a more formalized support system and offering leadership coaching for a small group of special education administrators who are enrolled in Level I Academy; preference will be given to central office administrators. The focus of the leadership coaching will be fostering professional skill development and collegial support, provision of resources, advice and guidance along with a structure for leadership goal setting. During the pilot year leadership coaching will be limited to 10 individuals at no additional cost.

Sponsored by the New Hampshire Association of Special Education Administrators and presented by Drummond Woodsum’s special education team: Gerald M. Zelin, Erin R. Feltes, and Eric R. Herlan.

Have you noticed?  Nothing stays the same in special education!  Look at this lineup of developments:

  • In March 2017 the New Hampshire Board of Education amended the state’s special education rules.  The new rules include LOTS of changes, many of which will alter the way that schools practice special education.
  • A new First Circuit ruling addresses the interplay between the school’s written prior notice, IEPs, and questions about methodology.  This decision impacts documentation of every IEP meeting you hold.
  • Not enough?  You all know this – The U.S. Supreme Court recently issued its first ruling since 1982 on how extensive the school duty is to provide a FAPE.  This decision, in the Endrew F. case, may be the most important special education ruling by the Supreme Court in decades.

New Rules!  FAPE!  IEPs and WPNs!  Drummond Woodsum’s special education team will review each and every one of these new developments, and what they all mean for school districts in New Hampshire. This is a conference not to miss.

**This conference is a repeat of the May 11, 2017 conference, an encore for those who missed the first one.  Drummond Woodsum’s special education team will look at New Hampshire’s rule changes, new developments in identifying a FAPE, and the interplay between IEPs and written prior notices.  There will be something for almost everyone involved in special education.  Jerry Zelin, Erin Feltes, and Eric Herlan will review each and every one of these new developments, and what they all mean for school districts in New Hampshire.  This is a conference that simply should not be missed by anyone trying to keep up with special education.

Who should attend?

We recommend this conference for all special education directors, case managers, building principals, LEA representatives, private school administrators, people training to be any of the above, and anyone else interested in education and special education developments. Be there!

 This is a 5-day Academy designed to assist new special educators to learn about the nuts and bolts of managing the special education process. Participants will learn how to apply the essential procedural requirements in each step of the special education process including Written Prior Notice, consent and timelines; how to use evaluation data for educational planning; how to write appropriate IEPs that include present levels of performance, measurable goals and appropriate accommodations and modifications. In addition, strategies for good communication and collaboration with parents and general education teachers will be addressed at each step in the special education process. While designed for new teachers, the Academy can be a great refresher for experienced staff.

Facilitator: Carol Kosnitsky.
