Subject: Disseminate SELS2 Information

Source: Lina Browner, Executive Assistant, Office of Special Education

Intended Audience: Principals, teachers, parents, and anyone that may be interested in subscribing to SELS2

Date: August 20, 2010

In 2000, the Office of Special Education created SELS which has been and continues to be a limited email group available to only one contact person per school district/responsible public agency.  It is used by the Office of Special Education to disseminate important special education information concerning funding, compliance, data collection, professional development, etc. 

A few years ago, the Office of Special Education created a second email group called SELS2 which is open to anyone wanting to subscribe and currently has over 1,700 members.  It allows subscribers to receive the EXACT same messages as subscribers to SELS.  This second email group has given all constituents interested in special education the opportunity to receive the Office's email messages.  Messages are from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education only and may only be posted by the Office's manager, Lina Browner. 

We are asking districts and stakeholder groups to once again disseminate information about SELS2 to principals, teachers, parents, and any others who they feel may be interested in subscribing to SELS2.  Those interested in subscribing to SELS2 can do so by going to or by emailing

SELS messages are archived at: (scroll down the page - emails are sorted by topic).

If you have questions about either SELS or SELS2, contact Lina Browner at or 573-751-5739.
