 Description of the Legal Retreat

RISE is excited to announce its first Annual Florida Special Education Legal Retreat for ESE Direcotrs and their Assistants.  The RISE & Shine Retreat is always held at a location that is intended to facilitate a laid-back and relaxed atmosphere, while allowing for an extensive amount of input from and collaboration between attendees. The Retreat is typically held for one and 1/2 days, beginning on an afternoon and concluding in the afternoon the following day.  Since 2012, RISE has been holding these Retreats for Alabama Coordinators and they have always been enjoyable learning experiences for everyone who attended.  

The Retreat tuition includes all Retreat activities and materials prepared by Julie Weatherly and Kevin Pendley, all meals/snacks and one night's lodging at the Retreat site.

This ESE Legal Retreat is not intended to be a "conference" or typical "legal presentation."  Rather, it is designed to be a working Retreat where ESE Directors and their Assistants are able to share information and engage in hands-on problem-solving and strategy development for dealing with difficult legal situations.  Because of the nature of this Retreat, registration is limited to 50 people on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Registrants Create the Agenda!

Upon confirmation of registration and payment, Registrants will be contacted by RISE and asked to submit suggestions for Agenda items to be covered at the Retreat.   We collect and sort through all suggestions and form our Agenda based upon the input of registrants and the topics/questions that they suggest.
