Postponed: OSEP National Summit on Improving Effective Personnel for Children with Disabilities: Attract, Prepare, Retain

March 19 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP)

As of March 11, 2020, the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is postponing the March 19 OSEP National Summit on Improving Effective Personnel for Children with Disabilities and will reschedule as soon as practicable. We will hold the event when we can ensure full participation from all of our colleagues and stakeholders involved in this important work. Please stay tuned for the rescheduled date of the event.

Additional information will be coming soon and posted at the OSEP Meetings Website.

The Office of Special Education Programs will live stream Attract, Prepare, Retain: OSEP National Summit on Improving Effective Personnel for Children with Disabilities virtually on March 19, 2020. Details related to live stream access will be available closer to the summit date.  

The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is hosting a summit focusing on strategies to attract, prepare, and retain effective personnel—general and special education teachers, early childhood personnel, and related services providers—who have the knowledge and skills needed to provide effective instruction, interventions, supports, and services to children with disabilities. This is a topic that is important for schools, states, communities, businesses, districts, and professional organizations. This topic disproportionately affects children with disabilities and their families due to the many unfilled positions and high attrition rates among special education teachers, early childhood personnel, and related services providers. The summit is an opportunity to bring together these various stakeholders and explore potential strategies and innovative approaches to address this critical need. OSEP is also taking this opportunity to bring together the many professional organizations across the country that are working to improve attraction, preparation, and retention of effective personnel.

The summit will take place from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. Eastern time and we encourage viewing gatherings and discussions. Improving how we attract, prepare, and retain effective personnel for children with disabilities is a critical need that will only be resolved by prioritized and collaborative efforts.

Additional information will be coming soon and posted at the OSEP Meetings Website.
