Melissa Moe and Juliet Cole representing The Network at the Leadership Conference in Wisconsin Dells on October 20-21, 2015.

We are committed to racial equity and building capacity through face-to-face meetings, webinars, book studies, and professional learning communities. The Network offers PK-16 professional development opportunities to support Wisconsin school districts identified with racial disproportionality in special education for Indicators 4B, 9, 10 and the separate, but related, requirements associated with significant disproportionality.

Events are planned to provide training and resources to district-and school level personnel for the purpose of improving policies, procedures and practices in the referral, assessment and placement processes that result in inappropriate identification. 

Our schedule of trainings allows districts to explore and address individuals' cultural biases in signature trainings such and Beyond Diversity I and II.  Events for staff, parents, and community members are offered at no cost.
