IEP Goals and Progress Monitoring Trainings

ADDITIONAL DATES ADDED (OKC and Sapulpa) - Registration Open!

Measurable goals that are directly linked to educational needs are an essential factor in developing effective Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for students. This professional development will provide guidance in developing meaningful goals that can be monitored regularly to determine if progress is being made or if revisions are needed to a student’s educational programming. We will also introduce the Goals Progress Monitoring Wizard that will be available in the OK EdPlan System in fall 2019.

We will be offering a morning session (9:00- Noon) and an afternoon session (1:00 - 4:00) at both locations.

Non-Traditional Route to Special Education Certification (Boot Camp)

The teacher may renew the certificate two more times if the individual has completed at least six credit hours in a non-traditional route to certification program or toward a master’s degree in special education.
