Development Program for New Virginia Special Education Teachers

Rebecca Lowry

In her role as the superintendent of Westmoreland County Public Schools, Rebecca Lowry oversaw the construction of a new high school and managed district-wide operations. During her tenure as a superintendent for the Virginia school district, Rebecca Lowry leveraged her years of experiences as a school psychologist working with students with special-needs to make informed policy decisions.

In collaboration with the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), the Virginia Department of Education launched a pilot program designed to connect newly-credentialed special education teachers with professional-development opportunities and helpful publications and resources. Any educator who is teaching special education for the first time during the 2018-2019 school year is eligible for the program.

All participants will have access to three hours of professional-development courses administered by the CEC and yearlong membership to the organization. Educators will also be able to attend a CEC conference presenting workshops on several key topics in special education. The CEC aims to replicate this program in school districts across the country.
