To support new special education leaders as they strive to meet the challenges of their new positions, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) Special Education Team hosts this two-day training opportunity for first- and second-year Directors of Special Education, Special Education Coordinators or Designees. If you are an experienced leader, please pass this information on to a colleague who is new to the role. WDPI staff members will present sessions addressing a variety of procedural and relevant topics. This year, we are inviting New Building Administrators to join us on day 2 for a day of shared learning. Registration for this event has been extended and will close July 30. 

In order to register for this event, you must create a DPI MyQuickReg account at widpi.myquickreg.com/register.
