Child FIND and Evaluation - Network 1


Network 1, the Child Find, Evaluation, and ARD Supports Network for the state of Texas, has released their schedule of free webinars for the 2020-21 school year. The link will take you to the registratoin page. https://childfindtx.tea.texas.gov/webinars.html



Given the introduction of this webinar series, The Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Child Find, Evaluation, and ARD Supports Network will not provide the Statewide Evaluation Personnel (SWEP) conference during the 2020-2021 school year. In lieu of holding a statewide conference, the Child Find Network will gather information on regional and state level needs and develop a proposal that considers the efficacy of large in person conferences as professional development.


Thank you for all you continue to do for your staff, students, parents, and families. We are here to support you, so if you or your local education agency should need anything, please do not hesitate to contact the Network team here.
