2020 G-CASE Winter Drive-in Conference

The Georgia Council of Administrators of Special Education Winter Drive-In Conference


Increasing the Achievement of Students with Disabilities

(and Other Students who Struggle)

Presented by

John O’Connor

The superintendent calls you to his/her office.  "Our results are clear. We must increase the achievement of students with disabilities. What should we do?"  Are you ready for that conversation? Do you have a plan?

 During this workshop, John O'Connor will share a road map for increasing the achievement of students with disabilities in your school and district.  The great news is that the plan will also increase the achievement of many other struggling students, as well!

This one-day conference is geared for Special Education Administrators, RTI/MTSS Coordinators, Principals, Assistant Principals, Directors for Curriculum and Instruction, General and Special Education Teachers.  It will be exceptionally helpful if you bring a school and district team of administrators and teachers. Everyone will benefit, but most of all, our students!

Well-known presenter, John O'Connor has served in public education for almost 30 years.  He started as a teacher serving students with orthopedic impairments and held many administrative positions including Program Manager with the Georgia Department of Education and numerous roles in local districts:  Assistant Director, Director, Executive Director and Assistant Superintendent.  Along the way, John wrote four books, a textbook chapter, and many articles.  Since his retirement in 2018, he has provided training and instructional coaching to thousands of administrators and teachers in nine states.

The price of registration includes a paperback copy of John O’Connor’s latest book: Great Instruction Great Achievement for Students with Disabilities: A Road Map for Special Education Administrators along with his PowerPoint presentation.

G-CASE will present this timely, needed topic at three sites across Georgia so that all interested educators can more easily attend. Hours have been intentionally designed to help with driving times.


All presentations will begin at 9:00 A.M. and end at 3:00 P.M.

Lunch is provided on-site and included in the registration price.
