CT-SEDS Summer Collaborative Working Sessions
(July & August 2023)

These two-hour, in-person sessions offer a brief demonstration of the IEP Process and Progress Reporting modules and how to avoid common errors in CT-SEDS. The informational component of each session is followed by an opportunity for small group troubleshooting alongside RESC Alliance Help Desk Agents. Participants will require a laptop or tablet to work within CT-SEDS during the session.

Participants attending the collaborative working sessions will be paid a stipend (from the CSDE to the district) of $150. Attendance information will be shared with the employing school district and stipends processed in the fall. Participants can only register for one summer collaborative working session.
