Webinar Wednesdays

Welcome!

Every Wednesday from 2:00-5:00 the Multi-Tiered System of Support team will be conducting free webinars that cover a variety of topics around academic interventions and supports, dealing with challenging student behavior, and social emotional growth. Each Webinar Wednesday will end with a 15 minute Wellness Wednesday activity. We will lead the participants through the wellness activity and make them available to use with children and young adults. The webinars will be recorded and made available on a public canvas course along with any resources that support the webinars presented.

You are now able to receive CE credits for attending. See E-campus registration information below.

Sign Language Interpretation

Accessibility is a priority at Region 13. With advance notice, we'd be happy to request a sign language interpreter to attend the webinar live via Zoom. We'll need two business days to get that set up, so please let us know by the Monday before the webinar you're attending. The recordings will all be captioned as quickly as possible.

Send sign language interpreter requests for Webinar Wednesdays to questions@esc13.net and please let us know which date you will be attending.

Where to Ask for Help or Send Feedback

We love feedback! Let us know what you think or if there are any topics you'd like covered.
