A Message from our Director, Sandi Cole

The Center on Education and Lifelong Learning understands that these are trying times for educators and parents.  If we are working directly with you and your school/district, we will be in close touch with you as to how our work can/will continue and most importantly, how we can support you during this time. For others across the state, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions. Finally, we will continue to advocate for a free and appropriate education for students with disabilities during this difficult time; we know that many of you are problem solving issues that arise daily related to continued services and we will continue to be sharing ideas and guidance as it relates to this issue.
