CEC and CASE care about the health and safety of our event participants.  Our goal is to hold a safe event, recognizing it is not possible to remove all risks, in particular concerning COVID-19. The SELS Team will put required measures in place to provide a safe environment for its event attendees, including providing proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. This means attendees arriving onsite must provide documentation they are at least two weeks past the full primary two-injection course of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines or a single shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Consistent with CDC guidance, we also strongly encourages attendees to receive a booster dose of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines once eligible (i.e., six months after completion of the primary sequence of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines or two months after a primary Johnson & Johnson injection).

Legislative Action Centers

Participants of SELS and advocates for special education should consider using SELS week as a chance to reach out to your Senators and Representatives to tell them how you feel about key issues in special education. CEC and CASE have made that process easy to send letters through both organizations’ action centers below—it only takes a few minutes!
