Assessment, Eligibility, and Dismissal in Schools: Strategies, Tools, and Decision-Making

February 1–13, 2023 | Online Conference

With online conferences you get the convenience of at-home learning combined with real-time access to speakers. Add these dates and times to your schedule!

All times listed are Eastern time.

During each live video chat, expert presenters and a moderator will address participant questions. A recording of each chat will be available for on-demand viewing. We encourage participants to attend live if at all possible, but if you have a schedule conflict, you can watch the chat recording before the last day of the conference. You may report for CE credit for either the live chat or the recording, but not both.

This conference uses Zoom for live video chats. Be sure to test Zoom on the computer/device from which you will participate in the live chats. Click the "Join" button and then be sure to select "download and run Zoom" for the best experience.
