Welcome to the website of the Wisconsin Council of Administrators of Special Services (WCASS). WCASS is a statewide organization devoted to improving services to children with special needs by promoting professional leadership, providing opportunities for study of issues pertaining to special services, and facilitating communication and collaboration on behalf of special needs students.
If you are a Special Education or Pupil Services Director and not yet a member of WCASS, I encourage you to consider the benefits of membership and join us in our mission today.
The Wisconsin Council of Administrators of Special Services wishes to acknowledge districts and schools throughout the state that are engaged in successful implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. At the close of the 2011-2012 school year, the Wisconsin PBIS Network was proud to announce 139 schools that received recognition for the PBIS Implementation Efforts. The 2010-2011 school year was the first for recognizing PBIS implementation, with 26 schools receiving School of Merit Status. That jumped to 114 schools during the 2011-2012 school year.
