ABOUT P.I.P.E.L.I.N.E. (Preparing Impactful Programs for Exceptional Learners Intensive for “New-to-Special-Education” Educators)
Charter schools have always exercised certification flexibility in hiring, but the pandemic has exacerbated special education staffing challenges, leading to more designated special education roles being filled by general educators. In response, the Collaborative is offering the ESSR-funding compliant PIPELINE program to train these “new-to-special-education” teachers (both newly-hired as well as veteran teachers who have been tapped internally for special education roles) and their supervisors to support them in learning the fundamentals of special education compliance and instruction. This intensive course for coaches OR teachers and their coaches seeks to help break the special education silo and ensure that schools have a cohesive vision for their special education programmatic and instructional supports.
February 6 is the deadline to apply for this semester’s PIPELINE Teacher & Coach Cohort. The training dates are 2/28, 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, and 3/28 from 8:30am-10:30am (except for 3/7 which will meet from 9am-12pm).
2/28 – SPED History and The Law, and Intro to Tier 1
*3/7 – Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) with Anne Beninghof
3/14 – Specially Designed Instruction Continued
