Secondary Transition Para AcademyMonday, January 3, 2011, 4:45 pm
The Division of Special Education and the Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD) is offering a new para-educator academy on Secondary Transition. Two in-person workshops will occur this year. In addition, there will be a follow-up webinar. Secondary transition education settings require that the para-educators assist the certified teacher with a number of instructional and employment related activities such as: implementing school and community-based instruction; implementing employment sampling and job trainings programs; and monitoring and collecting instructional data. This transition academy is designed to provide participants with the tools to effectively work as a member of a team in a transition setting.
These workshops will occur in Billings on January 11-12, 2011, and in Missoula on February 10-11, 2011. The workshops are designed for para-educators, high-school special education teachers, and directors of special education.
