In an effort to promote family-school collaborations and provide a common and consistent understanding between parents, families, advocates, school districts, and intermediate school districts, the Michigan Department of Education Office of Special Education (MDE OSE) hosted a free webinar on December 17, 2020. This webinar opportunity had been specifically designed for parents, families, and advocates of students with individualized education programs (IEPs).

 

During the webinar, the MDE OSE discussed recently released guidance, titled Return to Learn for Students with IEP’s and provided an in-depth conversation regarding the six special education priority topic areas recently established for the 2020-2021 school year.
