RSN is guided by a set of actions reflecting both administrative and professional development activities. The State Performance Plan-20 indicators (SPP) influence the RSN responsibilities at both the state and local levels. Through the RSN project, professional development opportunities are coordinated and provided throughout the year, which are aimed at meeting the needs of all educators who serve students with disabilities. These professional development opportunities offer a wide range of special education issues and instructional innovations. The offerings are selected in response to state initiatives and input received from CESA #11 area school districts.
RSN Project goals for 2014-2015 are:
The role of the RSN has been re-envisioned such that RSN Directors will become leaders in a coordinated effort to drive growth in academic and career achievement for students with disabilities. In 2014-2015 school year, RSN Directors will continue to help lead the effort to reach out to the highest-need districts within their CESA and coordinate grant efforts in a comprehensive system of support for these districts.
