2018 Special Education Boot Camp

This conference is four days of comprehensive focus on special education issues. This summer's training will provide relative information on the responsibilities for those working with children with disabilities.

The training, presented by the WEA Special Education Cadre, is open to all school employees, parents, administrators and representatives from community agencies. View this year's course offerings.

All boot camp participants who have not attended a Special Education and Law class in the last two years MUST sign up for Sp Ed Law on Tuesday. Participants will select one of seven courses offered each day Wednesday through Friday. Participants are required to bring their own laptops for this conference.

Training materials will be given to participants on a thumb drive. It is required that all participants bring an electronic device with a USB port to view and use training materials. Headphones or earbuds are preferred and recommended for the Universal Design for Learning course.
