2020 OSEP Project Directors' Virtual Check-In Opportunities
OSEP Hosts National Summit and Launches New Attract, Prepare, Retain Resource Page
The 2020 OSEP Summit provided an opportunity by bringing together various stakeholders to explore potential strategies and innovative approaches to address this critical need. The virtual event was held over three days and participants had the opportunity to register for each event individually or attend all three. An archive of the event can be found on the 2020 OSEP National Summit webpage. OSEP also launched a new Attract, Prepare, Retain Resources Page that provides research and resources for stakeholders to explore potential strategies, innovative approaches, and additional resources regarding this topic!
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!
