Assistant Principals Webinar: Special Education Do's And Don'ts
Most students with disabilities spend the majority of their school day in a general education setting. Therefore, it is essential for all teachers to have knowledge, skill, and ongoing professional development to meet their complex learning needs. The High-Leverage Practices (HLP) in Special Education, developed through a partnership of the Council for Exceptional Children and the CEEDAR Center, are identified practices to improve student outcomes. In this webinar, presenters will provide an overview of the HLPs, share a resource for school leaders to encourage implementation, and discuss strategies that can be used to differentiate support for beginning special and general education teachers.

Presenters: Dr. Erica D. McCray is an Associate Professor of Special Education and a Co-Director for the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability, and Reform (CEEDAR) Center at the University of Florida.
