In this workshop, participants will learn strategies to monitor the implementation of academic special education services. Participants will look at how our school (Harlem Children’s Zone Promise Academy Schools) tracks student performance on both a daily and unit level, their performance on common core standards, and how we use this information to reflect and evaluate the effectiveness of specially designed instruction. The “Special Education E-Binders” are our way of holding ourselves accountable for not only implementing services, but ensuring that the services are pushing students to close the achievement gaps between themselves and their general education peers. The data and information we track directly informs teacher reports and the goals in students’ Individualized Education Plans. This system is used K-12 with some differences sensitive to grade level needs. Participants will learn, discuss and have work time to adapt and develop a system suitable for their needs.
By attending this session, attendees will leave with…
- Example of a data tracking system K-12 for students with IEPs
- Work time to adapt and create a system to fit their needs
- Knowledge of how to use data to track, reflect and inform instruction for students with disabilities
