NAESPA and NASDSE Panel - Cooperating Across IDEA and ESEA

Wednesday February 7, 2024
1:30 - 3:00 PM
Oregon Ballroom 204

The National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) and National Association of ESEA State Program Administrators (NAESPA) have collaborated to bring leaders from two states to share their experiences and challenges with coordinating ESEA and IDEA programs. Please join us as state Directors of special education from Utah and Washington are joined by their ESEA counterparts to provide examples of coordination that are already occurring, the impact that collaboration has on increasing efficiencies and capacity at the state- level, and how it can improve overall student outcomes through the alignment of support and oversight to LEAs. The session will culminate in an opportunity for audience questions, and highlight how professional organizations like NAESPA and NASDSE can create future opportunities for their members to explore opportunities for coordination in their own states.
