TITLE IX REFRESHER WORKSHOP:
DECEMBER 3, 2015
One of the best ways to protect your district, your faculty and staff, and yourself from the headaches and expense associated with Title IX difficulties is through regular ongoing training and self-evaluation. NESDEC's Title IX Refresher Workshop is designed to help keep Title IX Coordinators current with regard to the wide-ranging responsibilities and obligations associated with the law. The Refresher will also provide an opportunity for Title IX Coordinators and other related school personnel to review their policies and procedures and share their experiences to ensure a thorough understanding of the prevention-based requirements of the law.
Join us for this timely and informative legal seminar in which NESDEC’s Legal Services Consultant, Attorney Jeanne M. Colachico, will explore the implications of Title IX and the wide-ranging responsibilities and obligations associated with the law.

SPECIAL EDUCATION TREND REPORT:
A BENEFIT EXCLUSIVELY
In keeping with our mission of helping schools achieve and maintain high performing status, NESDEC offers superintendents of affiliated school districts a special education management tool called the Special Education Trend Report. Our goal in developing the Special Education Trend Report is to synthesize meaningful information in order to provide clear, useful comparison points for superintendents and educational leaders regarding student placements, personnel allocation and special education costs. Like our popular enrollment projection reports, the Special Education Trend Report is offered annually, at no cost, to NESDEC affiliates.
If your district is a NESDEC affiliate, and you would like to participate, please call the NESDEC office to obtain the data submission form. Once completed, you may email your completed form (as a PDF) to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you may fax
(508-481-5655) or mail a hard copy to NESDEC at 28 Lord Road, Marlborough, MA 01752.
When NESDEC receives your data, we will generate your district’s Special Education Trend Report and forward it to you.
