Facilitated IEP Trainings for 2014
The Arizona Department of Education/Dispute Resolution Unit is excited to bring facilitated individualized education program (IEP) trainings to Arizona beginning in the fall of the 2014-2015 school year.

IEP facilitation is a student focused process in which a trained individual (facilitator) assists the IEP team in developing an IEP that provides a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to the student.

The Dispute Resolution Unit believes there are three components needed to facilitate a successful IEP meeting: standardized meeting practices, knowledge of the IEP process, and the use of meeting management skills that aid in minimizing conflict and maximizing collaboration. This training is designed to teach these three components.

Administrators Academy: A Brick-by-Brick Approach to Building Knowledgeable, Empowered Leaders in Special Education
Administrators Academy is a four-part, interactive coaching series designed to teach participants how to practically and effectively apply the legal requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

This academy is geared toward school leaders, such as principals and assistant principals, who want to better understand their role in the special education process; special education directors looking for a more comprehensive understanding of the intricate legalities involved in special education; and special education practitioners who are interested in the legal foundations and purposes of their jobs.

Participants, this intimate workshop experience will feature an in-depth analysis of your obligations under the IDEA. Presenters will build up your knowledge and confidence brick-by-brick by explaining your responsibilities as school and special education leaders through deconstructing and reorganizing the IDEA into coherent pieces, while allowing you to interact with the information to improve your comfort and familiarity with the material. The instruction you receive through this academy will provide you the necessary foundation to be thoughtful and skilled decision makers and practitioners in special education.

Institute presenters will be Kacey Gregson, attorney and Director of Dispute Resolution for the Arizona Department of Education, and Shannon Chavez, special education teacher and Arizona Department of Education Corrective Action Compliance Monitor.
