External Opportunity: National Charter School Resource Center Special Education Conference
April 30, 2012 As charter school leaders strive to serve all students, they often face a number of challenges when planning how to provide high-quality special education services for students with disabilities. What are the responsibilities of charter schools? How are charter school leaders reinventing the delivery of special education services? What resources are available to support charter school educators who are committed to improving the quality of education in charter schools for students with disabilities?
Join the National Charter School Resource Center in Minneapolis for answers to these questions and to learn more about special education in charter schools during a full-day preconference event that will take place the day before the 2012 National Charter Schools Conference begins. This event, Building the Capacity of Charter Schools: Effectively Serving Students With Disabilities, will be held Tuesday, June 19, 2012, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hilton Minneapolis in Minneapolis, Minnesota, one of the hotels that has partnered with the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (NAPCS). The conference will be hosted by the National Charter School Resource Center and presented in partnership with NAPCS. The event will feature interactive sessions on the following topics:
- Designing Innovative Charter Schools That Serve the Needs of All Children
- Nuts and Bolts of Special Education: What Do Charter School Educators Need to Know?
