Partnering with Principals to Support Inclusive Learning Environments

Webinar Details

Principals are the heart of the school. They are often the first person parents think of when there is a problem with the education of their child. This is also true of parents of children eligible for special education and related services. There are multiple important components of special education that every principal (and assistant principal) need to know to ensure students receive an appropriate education. These components include child find, pre-referral interventions, progress monitoring, discipline, and leading IEP team meetings.

Webinar topics include: 

  • How to identify the main components of special education that principals need to know
  • Tips for principals on the implementation and supervision of special education services
