From the Director, Lynda Shanks
On November 19, 2013 at Yorkville Middle School Kendall County Special Education Cooperative celebrated KCSEC Rising Stars. This evening was created as a celebration of recognition of our staff. We intentionally chose during American Education Week to celebrate our successes! Two years ago when district school calendars began to creep early into August, we made the decision to not have a KCSEC Opening Day. This was a difficult decision to make, but in order to have an Opening Day that would have occurred before any districts started we would have had to get together the first week in August. As an administrative team we reflected on the decision to not have an official KCSEC Opening Day and we all agreed that we could disperse the information needed, but we lost the sense of unity and recognition.
