SWWC Special Education Newer Teacher Cohort 2018-19
The New/Newer Special Education Teacher Cohort (NSTC) will provide supports and trainings throughout the 2018-19 school year. The goal of the NSTC is to develop capacity within SWWC member districts to support newer special education staff to ensure staff feel they have the greatest level of success, increase teacher retention with member districts, and ultimately to ensure students will receive the greatest level of achievement for student outcomes. The greatest focus will be on due process however, there is also focus on the unique aspects of special needs instruction. Teachers have been placed into three different training pathways that will target their needs based on their level of experience. Training is tailored towards their needs with continued supports throughout the school year.
Eighty-five teachers are participating from the following districts: ACGC, Adrian, BBE, Benson, BOLD, Cedar Mountain, Eden Valley-Watkins, Ellsworth, Glencoe-Silver Lake, Hendricks, KMS, Luverne, Lynd, MACCRAY, Marshall, Milroy, Montevideo, Murray County Central, Ortonville, Pipestone Area, Redwood Area, Round Lake-Brewster, Red Rock Central, Springfield, Westbrook-Walnut Grove, Willmar, Windom and Worthington. Teachers from SWWC's five educational learning centers are also participating.
