Special Education Program Coordinator at Chester Upland School District
almost 2 years ago
In my role, I support individuals and programs that ensure our district's students are receiving a free and appropriate education within the guidelines set forth by their educational plans. Prepare to provide detailed answers on your familiarity with special education programming; the necessary documents needed for special education programming; special education timelines; IDEA; FAPE; recording, interpreting and updating special education data; completing and submitting special education data reports. Also problem solving skills, interpersonal skills that include interacting with administrators, special education teachers and support staff, parents and sometimes students. There is a lot of paperwork needed to support special education programming and good writing skills are essential. Think of yourself as the conductor of a 500 piece orchestra and your plans on how you will get all 500 instruments playing together to create a seamless, extraordinary experience for your audience every day.
