All new first-year special education directors are eligible to participate in the 2018-19 First-Year Special Education Directors Project, a joint effort of the Oklahoma Directors of Special Services (ODSS)/Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration (CCOSA) and the Oklahoma State Department of Education - Special Education Services section (SDE-SES). The purpose of the Project is to help support first-year directors as they learn the requirements of their new job. There is no cost to participate.

During the 2018-19 school year, we'll be conducting four half-day training sessions, putting on at least two webinars, providing directors with lists of resources and pairing each new director with an experienced special education director/mentor. New first-year directors will be paid a $50 stipend for each of the four in-person training sessions they attend.

To participate, please email Andrea Kunkel at or Laura Crabtree at with your school contact information, including your name, district, email address, school mailing address and telephone number. That's all you have to do to enroll.
