Highlight your school’s exemplary programs and services for students with special needs by entering the 2022 Innovations in Special Education Award program.

If you have a successful, groundbreaking program that has been in place for at least one school year, the New Jersey School Boards Association wants to hear about it.

The program – sponsored by NJSBA and ASAH, which has served the special education community since 1974 – is part of Special Education Week in New Jersey – 2022.

Since it began in 2002, the Innovations program has drawn wide interest from the state’s special education community.  In 2021, four entries received top honors, with two garnering honorable mention.
