The 2018 NC CASE Conference has been cancelled. This decision was made after talking with the
Hotel Manager this morning. Issues have continued to arise from the hurricane and the hotel did not feel like they could accommodate us in the manner to which we are accustomed. There has been constant communication with the hotel but as the hotel started addressing issues, more issues developed. We had hoped that things could be resolved but more things occurred between last night and this morning. NC CASE will be in touch with each registrant to address refunds and other alternatives. We will begin this process next week. If you have an issue regarding the conference cancellation, please direct them to Tom Griffin. He will be able to address any concerns you may have. Again,  NC CASE apologizes for any inconveniences this may have caused. The hotel will cancel all conference registrations. If you wish to go to the beach for your personal enjoyment the hotel will provide you the conference rate. We appreciate your working through this process with us. 

NC CASE Executive Board

President's Message

I would like to welcome you to the North Carolina Council of Administrators of Special Education (NC CASE). NC CASE is a professional educational organization affiliated with the Council for Exceptional Children and the North Carolina Association of School Administrators. Our mission is to provide leadership and support to members and subscribers by influencing policies and practices that impact the quality of special education and related services for students.  It is our goal to be your voice to help improve policies, practices and services in the state for administrators, teachers and most importantly, students with disabilities.

NC CASE needs your voice and input to make it strong. This is your organization; Please help make it the best it can be. We represent your interests in all of those places where decisions are made daily about educating students with disabilities. We work closely with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction EC Division, the North Carolina Association of School Administrators, the National CASE organization and others to ensure that we are at the table and your voices are heard. The NC CASE Board welcomes any suggestions on how NC CASE can better serve you and advocate on your behalf.  We are only as strong as the communication bonds between all of us.

I would like to thank the NC CASE Board and organization members for electing me to serve on the board as NC CASE President. It is both humbling and an honor to serve you and our students.  It is your energy, enthusiasm, leadership, integrity, and exemplary dedication to our children that makes serving on the NC CASE board so rewarding. Together we can achieve great things and make an impact on the lives of thousands of children across our state.  I am looking forward to another successful year!
