'This series offers special education and related service providers the opportunity to carefully assess the needs of the students on their caseload through the lens of Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) and adult transdisciplinary collaboration.

SETSS providers are invited to attend with a general education collaborating teacher (encouraged but not required).

**School administrators (principals, assistant principals) supporting participating SETSS providers will call in to Zoom meetings (video conference calls) from 9:15-10am on the following dates: 10/15, 12/9, 3/2.

'Participating teachers will learn:
1. To refine their development of students’ IEPs and document learner progress and outcomes.
2. Adult collaborative skills, including: facilitating a planning/problem solving meeting; understanding and resolving conflict; focusing problem-solving on student centered assets-based analysis with keen attention to how the student’s disability affects their learning, engagement, and participation.
3. To balance student learning needs due to disability, including: executive functioning; access to print literacies; and behavioral/emotional/social supports.

School-based administrators participating in Zoom meetings will learn:
1. Role of the special educator, ways to flexibly use the expertise of the SETSS provider, direct v. indirect services.
2. Strategies for supporting SETSS providers in their day to day work and setting priorities for their caseload.
3. Considerations for programming, budgeting. '
