Muller, Eve
National Center to Improve Recruitment and Retention of Qualified Personnel for Children with Disabilities
As communication technologies continue to evolve at an ever-expanding rate, some states and localities are turning to new social media tools as a means of recruiting and retaining qualified education personnel. Based on examples from around the country drawn from early intervention (EI) programs, state education agencies (SEAs), local education agencies (LEAs) and national organizations and centers, including the Personnel Improvement Center (PIC), this practice brief provides suggestions for using Facebook, Twitter, blogs and/or private online communities to improve recruitment and retention of special education personnel, including related service providers and EI personnel.
