Clarity & Order for Special Education Success

For High School Administrators

High school administrators should not be distracted from offering high quality leadership to their respective high school building based special education programs.

Does your HS administrative team have a dedicated administrator to support your HS SPED team?
Have you provided training in SPED best practices of transition to your HS administrator?
Does your high school special education team lack direction?
How consistent are your high school special education providers in best practices of Transition?
Is your high school special education team morale in the dumps?

High School administrators are often faced with a myriad of responsibilities to manage the comprehensive high school program. Leadership for the building based high school Special Education program can get lost in the shuffle if it is not intentionally planned for and supported. 

The Clarity & Order professional learning events for HS Administrators helps you analyze your building based special education effectiveness in the areas of climate, structure, and performance. You'll collaborate with fellow HS administrators from different regions of the country in a therapeutic environment. These professional learning events help you take an objective look at your HS SPED program leadership while also receiving a rejuvenating opportunity to reset attitudes and dedication to supporting students with disabilities. You'll be able to transform your leadership of High School Special Education so there's a climate of collaboration, a unified direction, and a seamless path to adult success for students with disabilites.

This two-day professional learning event is designed for high school administrators to self-assess their continuum of special education programs and services in their specific high school through interactive dialogue with colleagues based on nationally recognized standards. Participants will create a plan for improvement based on the strengths and opportunities for growth identified through the assessment of 21 different special education elements that are critical for success in our nation’s high schools.
