“To provide targeted technical assistance to school districts determined
by VESID as at risk, needing assistance or in need of intervention to meet the requirements of the IDEA through focused activities to improve instructional practices primarily in the areas of literacy, behavioral supports and special education for students with disabilities.”
This is accomplished by:
- Supporting districts through the use of the Diagnostic Tool for District and School Effectiveness; a process which will help to identify areas of need for students with disabilities through the state accountability system.
- Utilize an instructional classroom walk-through tool as a data point to assist in determining areas of instructional need.
- Provide a planning process for a Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) for targeted districts that will identify in-district work that will lease to improvements for students with disabilities.
