SSIP coordinators and others involved in preparing SSIP Phase III submissions were invited to this webinar.

As Phase III year 1 report submission due date approached, presenters asked what questions participants had for beginning their documentation. This webinar provided guidance to states preparing for this report.

First, IDC staff discussed key considerations for the report and how states might use OSEP Phase III guidance documents. A discussion for states to share and ask questions followed. Finally, the presenters provided information on how states could obtain additional support and TA for preparing for their Phase III submission.

Participant objectives for the webinar were:
  • Gain knowledge of how to apply OSEP’s guidance in developing the SSIP Phase III report
  • Learn how other states are approaching the completion of the Phase III report
  • Determine next steps for preparing their state’s submission
