TAESE Aids Kansas Leadership Conference
The Kansas Department of Education Technical Assistance System Network (TASN), a program of The Center for Technical Assistance for Excellence in Special Education (TAESE) at Utah State University’s Center for Persons with Disabilities, held a leadership conference in Wichita, Kan. July 24-26 with 300-350 participants.
The leadership conference offers information relevant to educational leadership and provides updated information on district requirements in preparation for the upcoming school year. The conference is for regular and special education leadership from across Kansas, according to TAESE associate director Dave Forbush, who attended the conference.
“It was really nice to see the state superintendent and her cabinet there,” Forbush said.
Keynote speakers for the conference were Dr. Randy Sprick, who spoke on classroom management, and Dr. Larry Wexler, who spoke about the policy of restraint and seclusion for special education students.
Pre-conference workshops included a session for new special education administrators and coordinators, and a session on management information systems for special education administrators.
