​​​​​​​​Special Education Reporting Manual

  • The Special Education Reporting Manual​ provides detailed information regarding special education data collection and reporting. This document will provide Directors of Special Education (DoSE) and other district staff with due dates, reports to help review and analyze data, and how to report data.​​

Goal Monitoring in IC ​

This webcast highlights the key features of the Goal Monitoring tool found in IC and can be used as a training tool to support school districts in setting up and monitoring Individual Education Program (IEP) goals and objectives. The Method of Measurement and Type of Data recording in IC document captures the connection between the type of data (used in IC) and the method of measurement (used in IEPs).​

  • Progress Monitoring- Driving Results and Staying Compliant - This video was developed to support districts in understanding the connection between progress monitoring and driving student results. The video first covers the process of the Admissions and Release Committee (ARC) team creating a well-developed and appropriately ambitious IEP. Then, the progress monitoring cycle is discussed along with support for identifying an adaptation to specially designed instruction (SDI) and when an ARC meeting should occur to change the SDI. Finally, the importance of using graphs and aim lines to monitor and report progress is discussed.
