Program: RPDC - Southeast

Location: 1 Southeast Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Cape Girardeau, MO) [map]

The simple answer is that is is BOTH! It's not a "special education" thing and it's not a "general education" thing - It's a "Free and Appropriate Public Education" (FAPE) thing. The best education involves breaking down barriers and working together for individual students to achieve. This is also a requirement of the federal and state regulations. It is imperative that we train special educators, general educators, administrators (and others) together so that myths can be busted! Please register for each meeting separately.

Participants will be provided with an overview of IDEA Federal Regulations Rights and Privacy Act, Missouri State Plan for Special Education and Missouri Compliance Standards and Indicators. Participants are encouraged to bring a current IEP and evaluation report so that they can review their documents as we look at common issues related to compliance.
