Today at Cooperating School Districts we had two professional development sessions take place, including a seminar (left), Transition to College: Services for Students with Disabilities in Post-Secondary Education presented by Julia Edwards, Assistant Dean of Disability Support Services from Ozarks Technical Community College. Growing enrollment of students with disabilities in post-secondary education have generated considerable interest in discussion on accessibility of higher education for students with disabilities- the session provided information for educators and service providers which can assist in a successful transition to college for students.
Also at 1460 Craig Road was a CPI- Non Violent Crisis Prevention refresher course (right). Participants in attendance completed the full 8-hour initial Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training Program prior to attending their first refresher training with Bruce Hunter; it’s recommended that participants attend these refresher trainings on a yearly basis to renew their skills. To learn how you can participate in future workshops for either program, consult CSD’s event calendar.
