Regional Service Network at CESA #1
The Wisconsin Regional Service Network (RSN) is an alliance of CESA #1 Special Education Directors who work in cooperation with the Department of Public Instruction. The mission of the Wisconsin RSN is to improve the quality of educational services to students with disabilities. The RSN has identified communication, staff development, and leadership as strategies for accomplishing the mission. The RSN also provides technical assistance to local special education leadership personnel by phone calls, district visits, information dissemination, discussions at CESA/RSN meetings, referral to information sources, and research on specific local issues/concerns as requested.
RSN is guided by a set of actions reflecting both administrative and professional development activities. The State Performance Plan-20 indicators (SPP) influences the RSN responsibilities at both the state and local levels.
Through the RSN project, professional development opportunities are coordinated and provided throughout the year which are aimed at meeting the needs of all educators who serve students with disabilities. These professional development opportunities offer a wide range of special education issues and instructional innovations. The offerings are selected in response to state initiatives and input received from CESA #1 area school districts.
