2020 OSEP Project Directors' Virtual Check-In Opportunities
New Leveraging Briefs Series on Attract, Prepare, Retain Available Now!
The new leverage briefs are the culmination of OSEP’s Attract, Prepare, Retain: Effective Personnel for All Initiative and highlight 13 leverage points covering strategies recognized by various stakeholders as essential to addressing critical shortages in the special education workforce.
July 20, 2020 to July 21, 2020
Personnel Development Project Directors (including Leadership Project Directors); Technical Assistance and Dissemination Project Directors; Educational Technology, Media, and Materials Project Directors; Parent Center Project Directors; State Personnel Development Grant Project Directors and Evaluators; Poster Session Exhibitors (not otherwise attending conference); OSEP and U.S. Department of Education Staff; additional grantee staff; and OSEP doctoral scholars.
With our stakeholders' well-being and safety in mind, the in-person OSEP Project Directors’ Conference was postponed, and is scheduled to occur in 2021. Although we missed seeing everyone in person this year, under the present circumstances, we believed this to be the best decision. During the dates of the planned conference (July 20-22, 2020), a series of virtual calls took place to ensure all grantees received updated and relevant information to inform their work. Next year both the OSEP Project Directors’ and OSEP Leadership Conferences will be held in person in Arlington, VA—more information about the dates, logistics, and conference structure coming soon!
