OSSE's Division of Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce Part 3 of a new professional development series focused on building capacity and developing high-quality individual education programs (IEPs).

On March 22, 2017 the US Supreme Court issued a unanimous opinion in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District. In that case, the Court redefined the free appropriate public education (FAPE) requirements in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This training series will provide an overview of the decision and provide LEAs with support to develop capacity among their special education staff to meet the more rigorous standard for IEP quality set forth by Endrew F.

In Part 3 of the series, Using Data to Design Appropriate Accommodations, Modifications, and Supports, participants will learn and understand:

  • Legal requirements related to the accommodations decision-making process
  • How to use data to design individualized, impactful instructional accommodations, modifications, and supports
  • How to use data to select appropriate, individualized assessment accommodations
  • How to create internal protocols that support sound decision-making and continuous monitoring processes regarding students’ specialized supports

Space is limited and registration is required.

Priority will be given to individuals who have attended prior sessions in the series. Participants from the same LEA or school should plan to attend on the same date whenever possible, to maximize the opportunity for collaboration and immediate application of course concepts to your team’s work.
