On February 3rd Southeast GLRS and the special education directors of District 14 honored special educators that were selected as the Debra Brantley Award recipients of the year for their individual school districts. This was our 2nd Annual District 14 Debra Brantley Award Recognition Banquet. Debra Brantley was a long-time special educator who exemplified what it truly means to be an advocate for children. Teachers and their families from Appling, Bulloch, Candler, Cedarwood GNETS Program, Jeff Davis, Tattnall, Toombs, Vidalia City and Wayne County Schools gathered in Metter for a luncheon in their honor.
Pictured with Mrs. Jeannie Morris is Mr. Cole Tucker. Mr. Tucker is a ventriloquist from Hahira, Georgia and he is only 15 years old.

ASPIRE promotes self-determination and self-advocacy skills to prepare students for educational, career, and independent living decisions they will need to be more successful in adulthood.
Southeast GLRS and South Central GLRS partnered together to host the first ASPIRE Innovative Practices Forum in our area. The purpose of the forum was to provide an opportunity for school systems to share their ideas and practices with other districts. We had a panel discussion during opening session that featured teachers, an administrator, a parent mentor, and an ASPIRE consultant. There were six breakout sessions throughout the day. In these sessions, participants learned various ways to engage students and parents in the ASPIRE process.
If you would like to view and watch the breakout sessions from the March 8, 2017 ASPIRE Forum please click on the link below:
