    Kentucky system of intervention sld eligibility update

    Kentucky System of Intervention & SLD Eligibility Update

    Overview of Current Practices&Evolving Trends in intervention and identification


    National vs state sld population 1999 2000 children ages 6 21
    National vs. State SLD Population1999 – 2000 – Children Ages 6 - 21

    • 4.5% were identified with a Specific Learning Disability nationwide.

    • Kentucky has lowest state SLD identification rate - 2.36%

      • Highest SLD rate is Massachusetts with 7.10%

    • Nationally, OHI students comprised 9.86% of IDEA

    • students in 2007. In the same year, 16% of IDEA students were

    • identified as OHI in Kentucky.


    National vs state idea proportions
    National vs. State IDEA Proportions

    • During the 2008-2009 school year, approximately 2% of the total student population was identified with a SLD in Kentucky.

    • Among all students with special needs, 12.6% were identified with a SLD in Kentucky.

    • SLD students represented 50.5 percent of all IDEA students ages 6-21 making SLD the largest category of students served nationwide.


    Trends in sld identification
    Trends in SLD Identification

    • LD first operationalzed in Fed. Regulations in 1977

      • Model not sufficiently examined until after implementation in early 1980’s

      • Nationwide inconsistencies with implementation and diagnostic process in identification of LD students

    • Response-to-Intervention under IDEA 2004

      • IDEA 2004 states “LEA may use a process that determines if the child responds to scientific, research-based intervention as a part of the evaluation procedures”:

        • Kentucky’s System of Intervention (KSI) is the state’s first steps towards fulfilling IDEA’s RTI requirements in support of LEAs.


    Response to intervention
    Response-to-Intervention

    • Effective RTI system has four components:

      • Efficient direct measures of student performance to screen a multitude of problems

        • “Is our current curriculum and instruction resulting in high levels of learning for at least 80% of our students?”

        • “Is it a group problem or an individual problem?”

      • Diagnostic measures to identify areas in need of further academic skills instruction

        • Align research base on effective instruction with the learning needs demonstrated by students.

    Response to intervention1
    Response-to-Intervention

    • Research-supported strategies implemented with fidelity

      Methods to monitor effective implementation may include:

      • Walk-throughs or other structured observations

      • Implementation checklists

      • Portfolio samples

  • Continual assessment of student performance

    • For students whose teachers monitor progress and modify instruction based on data, achievement goes up an average effect size of .7. An effect of .7 would raise math achievement among U.S. students from “average” to within the top five in the world. When combined with reinforcement of goal attainment, formative evaluation results in effect sizes of over one standard deviation (enough to raise achievement from the 16th to the 50th percentile)

  • Sld evaluation interim guidance
    SLD Evaluation – Interim Guidance

    • Continue to use KSI resources/ RTI systems.

    • Use of aptitude/achievement discrepancies is optional.

      • Existing tables appear to under-identify SLD students based current prevalence rate in Kentucky.

      • Use of a 22 point discrepancy is not statistically sound and therefore must not be a procedure utilized to determine eligibility.

      • Standard Error of Measurement has been included in the table development, therefore can not be applied after the calculations have been completed using the SLD tables.

      • Monitor SLD population – stay within the 4% identification rate.


    Next steps
    Next Steps

    • DECS has identified an advisory group to develop technical assistance on identification and eligibility of students with SLDs.

    • Research and development will occur during the 2009-2010 school year.

    • Published guidance available for Fall 2010 or sooner if possible.

    • 2007-2008 Actual State Target: 86.98%


    Indicator 13

    As of the January 2009 (SY 2007-2008) submission of the KCMP:

    Thirty-nine (39) districts were identified as being out of compliance with I-13 for the second consecutive year (i.e., out of compliance for SY 2006-2007 and did not document correction of noncompliance with SY 2007-2008 submission)

    Sixteen (16) of those districts were identified as being out of compliance for the third consecutive year.


    Indicator 13

    Mandatory Training

    Districts out of compliance with I-13 for more than one year were required to participate in a teleconference training on March 27, 2009 (repeated on April 15, 2009)

    Districts out of compliance with I-13 for more than one year were given the opportunity to document correction of noncompliance for any year in which they were not at 100%.


    Indicator 13

    As of the April 30, 2009 deadline to submit to DECS documentation of correction of noncompliance:

    Thirty-seven (37) districts out of compliance for more than one year with I-13 submitted documentation of correction of noncompliance for SY 2007-2008

    Thirty-four (34) districts out of compliance for more than one year with I-13 also submitted documentation of correction of noncompliance for SY 2006-2007.


    Indicator 13

    May 8, 2009 - Twenty-one (21) districts were newly cited fornoncompliance with I-13 requirements for SY 2007-2008 based on their January 2009 KCMP submission

    These districts were advised that they may choose now to submit documentation of correction of noncompliance to DECS for SY 2007-2008 – even though they have up to one year to do so

    To date, nine (9) districts newly cited for noncompliance with with I-13 requirements for SY 2007-2008 have submitted documentation of correction of noncompliance and are now in compliance with this Indicator


    Indicator 13

    One hundred fifty-four (154) districts are

    currently in compliance with Indicator 13!


    Indicator 14

    Percent of youth who had IEPs, are no longer in school and who have been competitively employed, enrolled in some type of postsecondary school, or both, within one year of leaving high school


    Indicator 14

    Exited 2006-2007

    Interviewed Spring 2008


    Indicator 14

    2007 and 2008 data reports are available at www.kypso.org

    The current, 2008-2009, data for both the KISTS and YOYO were due 6/30/09.

    Kentucky Post School Outcome Study (KyPSO) currently cleaning and beginning to analyze 2008-2009 KISTS and YOYO data.

    We expect to be able to begin reporting on 2008-2009 results in late August/early September.


    Indicator 14

    • Based upon feedback from DOSE, Special Education Cooperatives, and KyPSO Advisory Group, KyPSO is developing a system which will allow LEAs to access their own KISTS and YOYO data via www.kypso.org

    • Such a system will ideally allow the LEA to:

      • independently confirm that they have submitted their data

      • edit/add/delete records entered up to a certain closing date

      • access their own completed data set

    Training/ Technical Assistance/ Resources

    Kentucky again sent a team to Charlotte, NC on May 12-14, 2009 to participate in the Secondary Transition Planning Institute

    Kentucky hosted its own Regional Interagency Transition Teams (RITT) Planning Institute in Lexington on June 3-5, 2009


    Training/ Technical Assistance/ Resources

    A work group is currently updating the ACCESS to Postsecondary Education manual first produced several years ago

    KDE/DECS new transition page along with Transition One Stop are being managed and updated at least weekly in order to provide helpful transition resources for students, parents, teachers and districts


    Training/ Technical Assistance/ Resources

    • Kathy Eversole and the Special Education Cooperatives Transition Consultants have developed a Power Point presentation on Indicator 13 requirements which will soon be posted on both the KDE/DECS transition page and on Transition One Stop

    • In addition, the team has revised the ARC Responsibilities – Transition Checklist which will soon be posted on both the KDE/DECS transition page and on Transition One Stop
