Administrator Mentoring Program (AMP) for New Special Education Directors

MO-CASE seeks to continuously increase and improve services to its members and supporters.  The MO-CASE Board especially understands the challenges of new special education administrators as they assume important leadership responsibilities within their school districts.  In accordance with this effort and understanding, MO-CASE partnered with DESE in August 2009 to manage the AMP program for new special education directors.
