The Special Education Consultants’ primary role is to assist districts in programming and planning for the participation of students with special needs in the general education curriculum and in required assessments, such as MAP-A, as required under state and federal law. The Special Education Consultants also provide trainings and workshops on a regional level through the RPDC, as well as at the request of districts within the Northeast Region.
The Northeast RPDC’s Special Education Improvement Consultants are available to assist with comprehensive school improvement plans, professional development, and other school-based improvement efforts.
The Northeast RPDC’s Special Education Compliance Consultant is responsible for assisting local educational agencies (LEAs) in the implementation of all laws and regulations related to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This is done through supporting districts in the implementation of compliant special education programs for students with disabilities ages 3-21 in public schools and by providing technical assistance in accordance with Special Education laws and regulations.
Districts should contact the special education consultants to assist with comprehensive school improvement plans, professional development, and other school-based improvement efforts.
