Hard to believe, but the start of school is just around the corner. What ever happened to those endless summers I remember from childhood? Sigh.
As it is, we are gearing up for another lap around the track. Your band is probably on the parking lot right now, working on that routine for the first game. Your football team is undefeated. Your administrative team is meeting this week and the teachers will be here soon.
So before you have your first ARD meeting, your first short term suspension, your first DAEP placement or your first manifestation determination, we just want to remind you that the Walsh Gallegos firm offers a one-day training program on all of those sticky, special education discipline issues. We call it The Toolbox, because it provides participants with a framework, and new vocabulary to better understand what your options are, and how they should be used. In The Toolbox we review ten “tools” and then provide practice opportunities via hypothetical cases.
Let me know if you are interested in a Toolbox training in your district or ESC.
DAWG BONE: HAVE TOOLS. WILL TEACH.
File this one under: SPECIAL EDUCATION DISCIPLINE
Tomorrow: Is it risky to choose not to testify in your own termination hearing?
