We invite your school district to participate in the 2019 Innovations in Special Education program, which recognizes exemplary programs and services for students with special needs.

The program is part of Special Education Week 2019 in New Jersey, sponsored by the New Jersey School Boards Association and ASAH, which has been serving the private special education community since 1974. If you have a successful, innovative program that has been in place for at least one school year (beginning on or before September 2017), please tell us about it.

Since it began in 2002, the Innovations program has drawn wide interest from the state’s special education community.  Last year’s program drew 50 entries from public school districts and private schools for the disabled. Five of the entries were honored during a luncheon reception, held in conjunction with Special Education Week.

An article from NJSBA’s magazine, School Leader, about last year’s honored programs can be found on the NJSBA website at Innovations in Special Education: The 2018 Award Winners.

Selected programs will be honored at a special event held in conjunction with Special Education Week in New Jersey in May.
