The network meetings hosted by NSSED allows groups of professionals with similar roles and responsibilities from different districts to come together to receive professional development specific to their role and engage in case sharing and discussion. Network meetings have been in place since the 2008 school year and have expanded based on interest.
The networks typically meet approximately 2-4 times per year and the topics of discussion are generated based on the interest of the group members. The Network Meetings could include mini-skill instruction based on the topic. It will include opportunity to share resources with people in job alike roles along with an opportunity to network with other districts/programs in order to hear about successes and problem solve around challenges.
