Virtual Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Program Administrator Fall 2020 Institute


Webinar Registration

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) will offer the Leadership in Effective and Developmentally-appropriate Services (LEADS) Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Program Administrator Fall 2020 Institute. The purpose is to deliver targeted technical assistance to school division leaders who act as the program administrator for ECSE programs for preschool children with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). Since each division is different, this may include directors, coordinators, specialists, lead teachers, or others serving in this capacity. Divisions are strongly encouraged to identify the individual who has primary responsibility for ECSE programs to attend this and future LEADS events.

The LEADS-ECSE Program Administrator Fall Institute will provide:

  • state-level early childhood updates,
  • information related to observations using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) in early childhood special education self-contained classrooms,
  • an overview of changes to indicator 6 (early childhood placement) and December 1, 2020 reporting considerations, and
  • opportunities to network and problem solve with other divisions regarding providing instruction to young children with IEPs both in-person and virtually.  

Registration is required to participate.  Resources needed for the webinar will be emailed to those registered prior to the event. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email including the secure link and password to join. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24 hours, be sure to check your spam folder/junk mail. 

Space is limited and school divisions are to register only one participant. Depending on the availability of space, it may be possible for additional participants to attend. Please designate one individual as your guaranteed participant from the division and have him/her complete the online registration form. Provide the name, email address, and phone number of any additional participant to be placed on the wait-list. Registration for additional participants will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis until all participant spaces are filled.
