UPDATE: We have been able to add an afternoon session of more valuable information! There is no need to register for this session, but please consider joining our colleagues, Scott Newgass, Kimberly Traverso, and Glen Peterson if you would like to learn more about Standards and Guidelines for Students Who Have Been Expelled.
This session will run from 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. and is designed to provide an overview of two important CSDE guidance documents that were released this year: Alternative Educational Settings for Students Who Have Been Expelled: Best Practice Guidelines for Program Implementation and the companion document Alternative Educational Settings for Students Who Have Been Expelled: Best Practice Guidelines for Program Implementation. These guidance documents will be available along with all other documents for this event at http://ctserc.org/bts18 beginning on September 7th. Consultants from the CSDE Office of Student Supports will be on hand to address any questions.
