The Kennesaw State University Department of Special Education recently presented certificates to 20 teachers from Bartow County who have completed requirements for the interrelated special education add−on and the master of education in special education.

The Bartow collaborative began in winter 1996 when Kennesaw State delivered its first on−site interrelated special education program in Bartow County in an effort to help Bartow improve services for all students. The objective was to limit the number of special education students who were being removed from the general education classrooms. Since 1996‚ KSU has trained a total of 60 Bartow teachers as interrelated special education teachers.

The collaborative benefited Bartow Schools by increasing the number of fully certified special education teachers‚ providing teacher leaders in the district and improving educational opportunities for all students.
