Special Education Learning Experiences for Competency in Teaching

SELECT is a federally-funded program sponsored by the Arizona Department of Education.

SELECT courses provide training to persons seeking to expand their skills in working with children with disabilities and are recommended for general and special education teachers, administrators, related service personnel, and para-educators.

SELECT classes can be taken for university credit by those teachers or administrators who are required by their school districts to have official transcripts and for those who may need to transfer hours out of state. The classes can also be taken for Professional Growth contact hours for free.
