Officials of the state Department of Education told a key advisory panel that the agency will hold a series of webinars for school districts on how to implement the overhaul.

“It is going to require a total shift in how people think about things,” Jamie Wong, director of special education policy for the department, said of the law.

The webinars are scheduled for Sept. 29 and 30 and Oct. 9 and 10.
