About the 2020 OSEP Summit

The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is hosting a summit focusing on strategies to attract, prepare, and retain effective personnel—general and special education teachers, early childhood personnel, and related services providers—who have the knowledge and skills needed to provide effective instruction, interventions, supports, and services to children with disabilities. This is a topic that is important for schools, states, communities, businesses, districts, and professional organizations. This topic disproportionately affects children with disabilities and their families due to the many unfilled positions and high attrition rates among special education teachers, early childhood personnel, and related services providers. The summit is an opportunity to bring together these various stakeholders and explore potential strategies and innovative approaches to address this critical need. OSEP is also taking this opportunity to bring together the many professional organizations across the country that are working to improve attraction, preparation, and retention of effective personnel.

Additional information will be coming soon!
