Wayne County's Special Education Critical Shortage Initiatives
This is a culmination of the WRESA Special Education Critical Shortage Task Force, which consisted of Directors of Special Education and Human Resources, University representatives, and members of Wayne RESA's staff. The large task force broke into three subgroups. Each subgroup focused on one of the three sections (Attract, Prepare, or Retain) of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) Leverage Point document.
Each subgroup collaborated around the ideas presented in their section of the OSEP Leverage Documents to identify and explore initiatives and resources that would be valuable to Wayne County PSAs and Member Districts. In addition, each subgroup determined the most efficient and useful way to convey their findings with our constituents across Wayne County.
This page contains each subgroups findings, initiatives, resources, and pilot program opportunities that will assist your district addressing the critical shortage of staff.
