re   SIGN UP FOR THE 2020 SPRING CONFERENCE!


    President's Message

    The first organizational meeting of the Indiana Council of Administrators of Special Education was held at the Hollyhock Restaurant on North College Avenue in Indianapolis, in late October, 1961.  Mr. Nelson Mosher is credited with organizing that first meeting, and he, a year later, became the first ICASE President.  The organization’s original logo was designed by Mr. John Reifsnider in 1961.  The ICASE Constitution was written in 1962 as a chartered subdivision of the Council of Administrators of Special Education (CASE), which is a division of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC). 

    The Mission of ICASE is to provide leadership, support and professional development to empower our members in shaping policies and practices to improve the quality of education for all students.  Our strategic plan aligns with our mission by being committed to providing support, advocacy and leadership to our members.  

    ICASE is a membership-oriented organization that represents the needs and interests of Special Education Administrators in Indiana.   Currently, 93 of our members across the state actively participate in committees, serve as liaisons, or are members of state workgroups.  All of our members have opportunities to network and meet with other members in one of the 7 regional roundtable meetings which meet monthly.  There are two annual state conferences which are created for and hosted by ICASE members.  

    Indiana CASE is the proud recipient of the 2019 National Exemplary Unit for Overall Excellence from CASE.  Our Governmental Affairs Committee was also nationally recognized for their legislative initiatives.  

    As the 57th President of ICASE, I look forward to working with other special education administrators in Indiana and across the United States to make a difference in public educational programs, research, policies, practices and legislation!  

    Pam Bell
    ICASE President
