Inclusive/Special Education Program
In partnership with the University of Kentucky, the Tri-Association is offering a unique professional development opportunity for educators in the region wishing to specialize in Inclusive/Special Education. The purpose of the program is to prepare classroom teachers, learning resource teachers, educational leaders, and/or counselors with the competencies needed to design and deliver effective accommodations, modifications and interventions for special needs students within general educational settings. The first cohort is running from October 2014- October 2015 and forty-five teachers and specialists from the region are enrolled in the program. This group will obtain a Graduate Credit Certificate or a Digital Badge endorsement in Inclusive Education from the University of Kentucky. Teachers in the Graduate Certificate Program can apply their graduate credits towards the completion of a Master’s Degree in Inclusive Education with the University of Kentucky. Credits can also be transferred to SUNY programs.
This program is supported through a special grant given to the Tri-Association by the Office of Overseas Schools, making it possible for us to provide financial aid to educators in the region who are interested in expanding on their expertise in this important area.
All the pertinent details for this program are found in the documents below. A second cohort for 2015- 2016 will depend on the availability of funds from the Office of Overseas Schools.
Below you will find a document with detailed information about the program.
