Don’t miss this vital update training for Directors of Special Education and Special Education Legal Update.

Special education law is constantly changing. This conference provides information that all directors — new and experienced — need to know. 

Hear about current court cases, hot topic issues, budgeting and resources. Our presenters have many years of valuable experience to share with you.

This year we are offering a session to discuss the KSBA Model Special Education Procedures. This session will be helpful to directors of special education and Admissions and Release Committee (ARC) chairpersons.

If you are new to your job, don’t miss the first half-day, which will be particularly helpful to new directors and ARC chairpersons. We look forward to seeing you there.
