Office of Special Education Educational Partnership

The Office of Special Education (OSE) Educational Partnership is a coordinated and cohesive network of support focused on enhancing services and supports for students with disabilities from early childhood and school-age education to engagement in post-school opportunities. The OSE Educational Partnership includes five Technical Assistance Partnerships, housed at Institutes of Higher Education, and Regional Teams located in each region of the State. Using an intensive team approach, the Regional Teams, which include Regional Partnership Centers (RPC), Early Childhood Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Centers and School-age FACE Centers, provide technical assistance and professional development. Families, approved preschool and school-age programs, public schools and districts, and community partners are encouraged to contact the RPC and Early Childhood and School-age FACE Centers in your region of the State for assistance and training. The following includes contact information for each Regional Team.
