Professional Development

The South East Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) is pleased to announce its 2019-20 training program for staff. This selection of professional development opportunities reflect the results of needs assessments and workshop evaluations completed by Special Education teachers, assistants, specialists, parents, and administrators.

These professional development opportunities are created to provide quality, “in-house” trainings that coincide with the districts’ calendar in order to train staff at a convenient time and limit expenditure of resources.

Trainings are also available to staff from non-member districts. Any cost associated with trainings are indicated in the registration.

Once South East SELPA has accepted your registration, you will receive an email confirming your registration. Should changes in training schedule occur, you will receive an email notification for any training you are enrolled in.
Please note there are NO phone registrations, unless otherwise specified.

For more information or questions please contact (408) 223-3775. If there is a training topic that you would like SELPA to research for future trainings, please contact your special education director and the request will be made to the SELPA.
