Webinar: Let’s Talk about How our Systems can Support Better Schools for Students with Disabilities


Center on Reinventing Public Education, National Center for Special Education in Charter Schools







The latest report from the Center on Reinventing Public Education (CRPE) takes an in-depth look at promising special education practices they observed in 30 charter schools across the country.

CRPE invites you to a webinar where you can learn more about how advocates, policymakers, and system leaders can ensure schools put students with disabilities at the center of everything they do, and ask questions with experts from the Center on Reinventing Public Education and the National Center for Special Education in Charter Schools.

Join CRPE Director Robin Lake and NCSECS Executive Director Lauren Morando Rhim at 1:00 pm Eastern/10:00 am Pacific on Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Discussion will include:

  • Why advocates, charter school authorizers, and school accountability systems must focus on results, not just compliance, in special education.
  • Why talent factors—including strong school leaders who prioritize students with disabilities, and training for general and special education teachers—that were crucial in the schools we studied are often lacking in our school systems.
  • How school systems can help overcome one of the biggest stumbling blocks identified in our study: helping students with disabilities make successful transitions from high school to college and the workforce.
