Secondary Transition Para Academy

Monday, January 3, 2011, 4:45 pm

The Division of Special Education and the Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD) is offering a new para-educator academy on Secondary Transition. Two in-person workshops will occur this year.  In addition, there will be a follow-up webinar.  Secondary transition education settings require that the para-educators assist the certified teacher with a number of instructional and employment related activities such as: implementing school and community-based instruction; implementing employment sampling and job trainings programs; and monitoring and collecting instructional data. This transition academy is designed to provide participants with the tools to effectively work as a member of a team in a transition setting.


These workshops will occur in Billings on January 11-12, 2011, and in Missoula on February 10-11, 2011.  The workshops are designed for para-educators, high-school special education teachers, and directors of special education.  More information including workshop objectives can be found at: http://www.opi.mt.gov/pdf/SpecED/Link/11JanParaAcademyST.pdf
