About this event

Building Capacity and Establishing Sustainable Supports Summit

How do school districts leverage new federal funds with established funding sources in order to build capacity and establish sustainable supports, but avoid common mistakes that lead to unspent resources? Careful planning. The CT State Department of Education’s Bureau of Special Education, in conjunction with many partners, are offering this summit for District Teams to gather together and discuss, develop, and plan for managing increased resources and opportunities, including funding under the Individuals with Disabilities Act Part B Section 611/619 and the American Rescue Plan Act. After two half-day sessions, teams will come away with a plan for expending resources most targeted to support learning and improved outcomes for all students.

*Teams must register for one morning or afternoon session each day.

Districts must register as teams of up to 5 that may include the Special Education Director, Early Childhood Coordinator, Assistant Superintendent, Transit Coordinator, Business Manager, Student Support Services Professionals, and Special Education and Pupil Services Staff

The District Team will identify a team leader (Note: all team members must register individually on the virtual platform). The team will gather together in a central location within the District, and through the virtual platform will join the Summit, in order to examine how to braid resources and build a functional plan with a management timeline. This planning is necessary for success as well as to avoid common mistakes that lead to not expending all the resources available.
