Arizona’s 2022 IDEA Conference, Rise Up: Reimagining and Transforming Educational Practices, will feature over 75 learning opportunities that will address IDEA legal issues, instructional practices, national trends and hot topics, special education compliance, preschool and secondary transition, and social/emotional learning. This year’s conference will be held in person from September 7–9, 2022 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix.
In partnership with Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs, ADE/ESS is excited to be able to once again offer free registration for Arizona youth and their families.
Special Education Directors,
With input from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs, the ADE/ESS developed policies and procedures for Early Childhood Special Education Transition that are aligned with the IDEA. Following the public participation process set forth in IDEA and GEPA regulations during Spring 2022, ESS considered all public comments and finalized its policies and procedures document. The finalized document is also available on the ADE/ESS website.
