PCTI Annual Schedule/Locations

Most PCTIs are held once weekly for 9-weeks in various locations across Massachusetts. For those unable to commit to a class of that length, it is offered in June in a one-week condensed, intensive format. Locations change yearly and are established over the summer for the upcoming school year.

We recommend that PCTI attendees have some familiarity with special education procedures. A list of free workshops presented by the Federation can be found here: https://fcsn.org/ptic/workshops/schedule

Pre-Registration is required, no walk-in registration permitted.  


Attendance on Day 1 of class is required. Register ONLY if you can attend the first day.
