Senate Confirms Alexa Posny as Assistant Secretary of OSERS

On October 5, 2009, the U. S. senate confirmed Alexa Posny as Assistant Secretary of education for the the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services. This portion of the Department has jurisdiction over special education and vocational rehabilitation, among other things. Here is a link to the OSERS website.

Alexa Posny is currently the Commissioner of the Kansas Department of Education. She has formerly served as Director of the federal Office of Special Education Programs and as the state Special Education for Kansas. Here is an article from the Topeka Capitol Journal. Here is another biography of the Assistant Secretary.

I have seen her speak and she is a very effective and witty communicator. Good luck to the new Assistant Secretary from the special education law blog. I have already sent a written request for an interview.
