The Office of Special Education Programs will host Attract, Prepare, Retain: OSEP National Summit on Improving Effective Personnel for Children with Disabilities virtually on October 27-29, 2020

About the 2020 OSEP Summit

The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is hosting a virtual summit focusing on strategies to attract, prepare, and retain effective personnel—general and special education teachers, early childhood personnel, and related services providers—who have the knowledge and skills needed to provide effective instruction, interventions, supports, and services to children with disabilities. This topic disproportionately affects children with disabilities and their families due to the many unfilled positions and high attrition rates among special education teachers, early childhood personnel, and related services providers.

The 2020 OSEP Summit is an opportunity to bring together various stakeholders to explore potential strategies and innovative approaches to address this critical need. The virtual event will be held over three days. Participants must register for each event individually. The schedule for the summit will be as follows:
