IAASE’s  monthly webinars begin with a bang on Wednesday, September 11 at 1:00 pm,  featuring the inimitable Michelle Todd and Jessica Nguyen. With HB 3586 now law, this will be your key opportunity to discuss its implementation in your IEP process.

It’s certainly not too early to begin planning for the IAASE fall conference on October 16-18 in Tinley Park. The  Executive Board meeting is scheduled for October 16. HLERK’s Legal Update  will be posted at www.iaase.org prior to the meeting.

HLERK will, as always, be active at the Fall Conference, including our co-sponsorship of the ever popular Rush Hour Social, which is capped-off by the Friday morning attorneys’ panel.

HLERK will present special education implications of e-learning and managing student mental health issues, while Michelle is featured on the attorneys’ panel which closes the conference.

We encourage all of your special education administrators to attend. It is a singular opportunity to get the latest information to improve student outcomes and limit legal risk. Visit  www.iaase.org for information and registration.
