Web-based Academic Vision & Excellence Symposium

The WDE continues to be committed to improving the outcomes for all students and to ensuring a Free and Appropriate Education (FAPE) for all students with disabilities.  As a support to you in this work, we are excited to offer Web-based Academic Vision of Excellence Seminars (WAVES).  WAVES will include ongoing professional development throughout the 2020-21 school year e.g. conferences, webinars, seminars. WAVES is appropriate for Administrators, Directors, Related Service Providers, General and Special Education Teachers, and Paraprofessionals.  As with our in-person WAVE conference, high quality training will be delivered by local and/or nationally accredited presenters.
