2018 Special Education Boot Camps
Registration is now open for the 2018 WEA Special Education Boot Camps. Participants will receive four days of intense work on special education issues as well as 24 clock hour credits. The Boot Camp will provide hands-on training emphasizing the responsibilities of all educators working with students with disabilities. Certificated and classified personnel, general and special educators, parents, administrators and community agency personnel are all encouraged to attend.
