IEP Quality Capacity-building Summer Series

Last Date:

1050 First St. NE
First Floor, Eleanor Holmes Norton II/III, Rooms 109/110

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 individualized education program (IEP) quality set forth by Endrew F.

  • Part 1: Using Data to Describe Students’ Present Level of Performance (Monday, July 29)
  • Part 2: Using Data to Draft IEP Goals (Tuesday, July 30)
  • Part 3: Using Data to Design Appropriate Accommodations, Modifications, and Supports (Wednesday, July 31)
  • Part 4: Using Data to Propose Appropriate Service Hours and Setting (Thursday, Aug. 1)

This training series consists of four full-day sessions from Monday, July 29 through Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019, from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. each day, at OSSE, First Floor, Eleanor Holmes Norton II/III, Rooms 109/110. Participants may register for individual sessions, but attendance at all sessions is strongly encouraged. School leaders, school-level special education leadership, and special educators serving DC students in grades K-12 are invited to participate. Participants will receive six professional learning units (PLUs) for each day of attendance.
