Dear ASE Community,

As leaders of special education we must be masters of the ever-changing special education laws and regulations. As well, we must constantly be upgrading our knowledge and skills as leaders, as advocates, as conflict managers, as mentors, and as mindful leaders.

On behalf of the ASE Statewide Executive Board, we are pleased to offer what we anticipate to be a promising professional development opportunity ---- one that will generate new understandings, new insights, and hope as we all focus on doing the right thing in the right way as leaders and school teams for Massachusetts students with special education needs, our staff and school communities.

This Conference is very relevant to colleagues who support our work: school team leaders, specialists, assistant principals, and principals. Register them, so you can learn, change, and grow together as leaders!
