KASB online this week to focus on `gating criteria,’ special education

KASB online sessions this week will focus on special education and so-called `gating criteria’ — the data driven conditions that have been used by many schools boards to determine when and how to re-open and operate school buildings and instruction.

At noon Tuesday (Aug. 25), KASB will conduct a workshop on special education, school closure and COVID-19. This workshop will feature a review of state and federal law changes and how the state reopening guidance impacts special education law. We will discuss best practices for dealing with limitations caused by abrupt school closures and the impact on students with special needs. This session is season pass eligible. There will be recording for On Demand purchase at a later date. On Demand recordings are not part of the season pass. To register, go here.

At noon Wednesday (Aug. 26), Kansas school leaders are invited to join KASB for its weekly “Lunch and Learn” session. The session will focus on gating criteria that has been used by school leaders to help determine how to operate schools and make changes amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The session will include opportunities to ask questions and share information with fellow Kansas education leaders.

The session will be held at noon and is open to all KASB member boards of education and district leaders. There is no registration fee, however, pre-registration is required to receive access to the  session via Zoom. Here is a link to register.
