Bring your scheduling team to learn about master scheduling for elementary, middle, and/or high schools. Increase awareness of scheduling impacts on FTE, class size, and least restrictive environment. Hear a district’s journey to a more practical approach, and how they were able to put special programs at the forefront of their scheduling process, which led to improved outcomes and increased funding for the district.

The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) Special Education Budget and Results-Driven Accountability Units will host four Open Office Hour sessions. Join us anytime between 1 and 2 p.m. as we discuss FY24 IDEA Cross Functional Monitoring. These informal, open-forum sessions will provide an opportunity for districts to ask questions and receive the technical support needed to successfully prepare for Cross-Functional Monitoring for IDEA. Each session will begin with the Special Education Budget and Results Driven Accountability Units sharing important requirements and reminders, then opening the floor for questions.
Join the GaDOE Division of Special Education Results Driven Accountability Staff in presenting Back to Basics Transition. This training will provide the audience with the history of transition planning as a foundation for creating effective, student-centered transition plans. Participants will understand the process for creating compliant transition plans. Each component of the transition plan will be discussed in depth. Participants can engage in activities and will be provided with examples and non-examples for future reference.
Please register for the date and location of your choice. Seats are limited.
This is a four-day training on the functional behavior assessment and behavior intervention plan (FBA/BIP) process. Participants will learn the FBA/BIP process from start to finish and will receive free, modifiable FBA/BIP materials for their district’s use. Training participants will have access to follow-up coaching and technical assistance calls as well.
Drop-in sessions provide an opportunity for new and veteran Federal Programs Directors to collaboratively discuss the successes and challenges of implementing ESSA equitable services. GaDOE staff will provide program updates as well as updates from other states and the U.S. Department of Education Office for Nonpublic Education. There is no set agenda, and the meeting will not be recorded.
