Welcome to the Pennsylvania Council for Exceptional Children
homepage. It is our hope that through this vehicle we will be able to offer
important information in a timely fashion. No more waiting for the editors,
printers, mailers, post office, etc. to get you breaking news and important
information. It will be here as fast as we can load it into the system.
Everyone is welcome to submit news and other interesting items for inclusion
here. All you need to do is e-mail it to the
Webmaster for consideration. Or, you
can even use good-old snail-mail if you prefer. When ground-mailing items, we
ask you to do so on disk along with a paper copy. Don't forget to note the
program, version, and filename under which your file has been saved (IBM
compatible only, please).
Take your time and explore the entire system. You never know, you might
find something great where you least expect it. Come often as our goal is to
update frequently. We hope your visit is helpful and informative. Enjoy!
A Message from PACEC Past-President Kimberly Bright
I recently returned from the annual CEC Convention, Connecting Learning
Communities, in Minneapolis where we celebrated another year of advancements
in the field of special education. Along with the many outstanding sessions,
panel discussions, exhibits and strands, the national Delegate Assembly
supported CEC's new and bold initiative:
Improving the Working Conditions of Special Education Teachers. The
negative conditions that have been the focal point of the initiative are
unmanageable caseloads, overwhelming amounts of paperwork, lack of resources and
lack of administrative support. The leadership of CEC, supported by the
Delegate Assembly, believes that we need to "take a stand as an
organization to rectify these negative conditions".
