About the Teacher Academy

This day-and-a-half institute will incorporate research-based content and activities that will deepen participant knowledge and enhance their educational practices leading to improved outcomes for students with disabilities. The Teacher Academy is designed for new special education teachers or teachers who are looking for a refresher. Teams of educators are encouraged to join.


Participant Outcomes:

  • Ensure educational benefit for students with disabilities through the development of a reasonably calculated, compliant IEP when determining FAPE in the LRE.

  • Design and deliver specialized academic instruction, including classroom adaptations, based on assessment information.

  • Identify and implement positive, preventative behavior management techniques.

  • Practice and improve communication and facilitation skills.

  • Understand qualifying disability categories and implications for individualized program design.

  • Identify the continuum of placement/support options and review a variety of inclusive practices including co-teaching, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), differentiated instruction, site/classroom climate (including students with moderate/severe disabilities).

  • Explore general education initiatives and structures that directly impact special education such as Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI2), Positive Behavioral Interventions (PBIS), Student Study Team (SST) meetings, 504 Plan development.

SEIS 101: Teacher-Level User Training (optional)

Teacher Academy attendees are strongly encouraged to attend the one-day training that will take place the day before each Teacher Academy. In order to remain compliant and accurately document student level special education information, IEP teams must understand the finer points of SEIS entry requirements. In this training, participants will gain a sound understanding of the SEIS system and the importance of thorough documentation of student need and supports. Through a reasonably calculated IEP, a team will develop a plan in the best interests of the student and support complete CASEMIS data for the Quality Assurance Process reporting periods.
