On this page, you will find information for parents and family members of children who receive or who may be eligible for special education services within the 14 school districts that comprise the North Coastal Consortium for Special Education (NCCSE). It is designed to connect you to useful resources, to help you understand special education services, and to resolve concerns or questions you may have about those services.

2023 NCCSE Excellence in Special Education Award Nominations

Message from the NCCSE Community Advisory Committee (CAC) Executive Board

Dear families, students, and staff:

This year, we have made some noteworthy changes to the "Excellence in Special Education Awards" program. We have modified the nomination criteria and added a new category for our 2023 awards.

With parents and families choosing Social and Academic Inclusion as their number one priority year after year, we have embedded that aspect of Special Education into the nomination questionnaire. We added the category an award for "Excellence in Inclusion Practices - District/School/Program."

Now, all categories ask that those nominating (parents, guardians, students, professionals) consider their nominee’s inclusion practices in addition to all their other strengths and talents that enhance the lives of our students. 

Make your nomination at https://forms.gle/3r1baEfy7XuPDGrn9
