COPAA Annual Conference
The Fairmont Dallas, March 2-5, 2017
When you have a tough case against a school district and need information or advice where do you turn?
If you’re like most, you come to the unparalleled peer-to-peer network COPAA.
Because you know you will receive absolute top notch education advice, support, and strategy. And you may receive up to 22 CLE credit hours for attending all 4 days of training!
COPAA members work in the trenches every day to assure that IDEA, Section 504, The ADA and other federal and state laws are implemented as intended. We have experienced, time and time again, the full synergistic force of effective IEP teams; where parents and students are equal members, the team works collaboratively, and the resulting individualized program gives the student a real shot at life enrichment as the result of receiving a meaningful, quality education.
The Annual COPAA Conference is your opportunity to learn, face-to-face, effective strategies from the COPAA network. Learn information and approaches to support each student through the spirit and letter of the law to be as independent, self-sufficient, self-advocating as possible; enforcing their civil right to equal opportunity.
