The Region I CSPD is hosting a free two-hour webinar with Yvonne Field from OPI’s Student Support Services Division. The webinar has three parts:
Part 1: Data for Inclusion-In IDEA requirements for the IEP focus around the idea that the program that is put in place enables involvement and progress in the general education curriculum. At the same time, the 2015 reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act states that instruction for all students must be aligned to grade level standards. We will make connections between these ideas and the process of writing IEPs that support involvement and progress in the general education curriculum by exploring how to gather data and answer questions that lead to PLAAFP statements that provide useful data to be able to make data based decisions to improve inclusive practices for special education students.
Part 2: High School Topics in Special Education-We will explore the topic of special education students and options for high school graduation and the related special education documents.
Part 3: Technical Assistance and Burning Questions-We will reserve time to review any burning questions you have and provide demonstrations and resources as applicable.
