School Procedures and ESEA Rules for Identification of Students with Disabilities: Assessment of Eligibility, Grades K-12 – No. 236

Beginning with an overview of the Individuals With Disabilities Act of 2004 rights and responsibilities, participants will learn the rules for appropriate identification of students with disabilities through examining IEPs and individual classroom responsibilities across all content areas.  Participants will learn, evaluate, and practice with methods of on-going evaluation of student progress or “progress monitoring”, and planning for strategic, differentiated instruction that follow the rules and protocols for effective identification of students with disabilities.

Course Objectives:

  • Develop an overall understanding of special education law, rights, and responsibilities
  • Understand individual, discipline-specific responsibilities within ESEA rules for identification of students with disabilities to include assessment and eligibility
  • Plan and practice with various tests and measurements endorsed for measuring student progress and regression and development of SMART IEPs.
