OSEP Hosts Virtual Summit Focused on Special Education and Early Childhood Personnel
On October 27-29, the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is hosting a virtual summit, “Attract, Prepare, Retain: OSEP National Summit on Improving Effective Personnel for Children with Disabilities.”
The 2020 Summit is divided into three days, each day focusing on one of the three actions mentioned in the summit’s title: attracting, preparing, and retaining effective personnel. All days will be facilitated by OSEP Director Laurie VanderPloeg and will be organized into three sections: Outside Perspective; Panel Discussion with Q&A; and Leverage Points for Special Education and Summary.
The goal of the Summit is to bring together stakeholders in the realm of special education and early childhood to create innovative strategies to combat high attrition rates in teachers, personnel, and service providers.
