Professional Development


There’s nothing like a face-to-face meeting to recharge your batteries, fuel your creativity, and renew your sense of mission. TCASE is the leading provider of must-attend events when you’re seeking to gain new knowledge, expand your professional network, and strengthen your connection to the Texas special education community.

While our conventions have become the premiere place to get the latest updates, imperative networking and leading strategies, we also have an array of smaller, topic-focused events to hone your knowledge and skills on particular topics.

Great Ideas Annual Convention

This is the place for Texas special education leaders to gather to imagine the future and share the big ideas that will propel schools and students forward. This is our biggest event of the year, with hundreds of special education leaders, consultants, attorneys and product and service providers. Over three days, you’ll tap into dozens of education sessions, countless networking opportunities, a bustling expo hall, and more.

Future dates:

January 2017
February 2018

New Directors’ Finance 101
Attend this event if you are in your first few years as a director and want to understand how to prepare your budget for the next fiscal year, where to find your data, and how to drive your strategy through budgeting.

Conference on Special Education Law
For more than three decades, TCASE has been teaming up with the Texas School Administrators’ Legal Digest for an annual Spring Conference on Special Education Law. This one-day conference will focus on some of the hottest issues concerning the education of students with disabilities. All special education professionals, as well as superintendents, principals, school board members, and school attorneys will find this conference valuable.

Stay tuned for future dates.

Synergy
This event co-hosted by TCASE and TASBO will include expert presenters on EDGAR, MOE, SHARS, state funding, TEA audits and more. This is a great opportunity to expand the collaboration between your district's special education and finance departments.
