Monthly Special Education School Coordinator Meeting

9/15/2014


Agenda

  • Evaluation-Reevaluation Process

    • Forms

    • Enrich procedures

  • FBA-Reevaluation

  • Enrich

    • Reporting Progress Towards Parents

    • Service Log

    • Exiting


Evaluation/Reevaluation

  • The process is the same for initial evaluation and for reevaluation

  • There are no short cuts

  • There are no steps to skip


Enrich breaks this process into 3 separate components

Reevaluations

Reevaluation Review

Evaluation (gathering the additional info)*

Eligibility Determination

* If the team determines additional information is needed

  • Initials

    • Referral/evaluation planning

    • Evaluation (gathering the additional info)*

    • Eligibility Determination


Process

  • Review existing information – what do we already know about the student?

  • Determine if you have enough to make decisions (eligibility/continued eligibility and educational needs)

  • At this point, the team determines 1 of 2 things

    • No, we do not needadditional information or

    • Yes, we do need additional information


No, we do not need additional information

  • Eligibility/continued eligibility is determined and educational needs are discussed

    • This finalizes/finishes/completes the evaluation/reevaluation and eligibility determination process

  • Conduct an AR or a SR as needed


Yes, we do needadditional information

  • What areas do we need additional information in to make the decisions?

  • Obtain parent consent to gather information in those areas.

  • Gather the information requested by the team.

  • Review all information and make your decisions about and educational need.

  • Get consent for the initial provision of sped services.

  • Develop an IEP.


Requirements

  • Use a variety of tools and strategies

  • Not use any single measure as the sole criterion for decisions

  • Be sufficiently comprehensive to identify all of the child’s special education and related service needs, whether or not commonly linked to the disability category being considered


Our form/Enrich’s process

  • To ensure a comprehensive evaluation

  • To document all areas discussed

  • To assist/guide teams through the process

If you are in the middle of an initial evaluation or a reevaluation, finish the way you started (unless you just want to switch).

FOR ALL INITIALS AND REEVALS FROM THIS POINT FORWARD (TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014) YOU MUST USE THESE FORMS AND THESE PROCESSES.


Initial evaluations, no new info needed

  • These are rare, but do happen.

  • Call Beckie and we’ll walk through how to do this because of a glitch in Enrich.


FBA

  • Functional behavioral assessment is generally considered to be a problem-solving process for addressing student problem behavior. It relies on a variety of techniques and strategies to identify the purposes of specific behavior and to help IEP teams select interventions to directly address the problem behavior. 


  • A functional behavioral assessment looks beyond the behavior itself. The focus when conducting a functional behavioral assessment is on identifying significant, pupil-specific social, affective, and/or environmental factors associated with the occurrence (and non-occurrence) of specific behaviors. This broader perspective offers a better understanding of the function or purpose behind student behavior.


FBA = Initial Evaluation or Reevaluation

  • You will always do a FBA as part of an initial evaluation (for new students) or as part of a reevaluation

  • A FBA would be included in your consent to evaluate or consent to reevaluate


FBA

  • Initiate the reevaluation process first in Enrich

  • The reevaluation team will determine the need for the FBA (gathering additional information in the area of social/emotional/behavior)

  • The team will get consent to reevaluate

  • The team will gather all requested information


FBA

  • After you’ve held the reevaluation review meeting and gotten consent to reevaluation

    • Add Action

      • Functional Behavior Assessment

      • Select Consent for Evaluation

    • Let the questions guide you through the FBA process

  • After you’ve held the reevaluation eligibility determination meeting, you will either address the behavior issues through the IEP or create/revise a BIP

    • Add Action

      • Behavior Intervention Plan


Enrich Topics


Reporting Progress Towards Goals

  • Enrich is set up with 5 options:

    • Quarterly with Quarterly Reports

    • 4.5 weeks with Interim Reports

    • Every 9 weeks

    • Every 4.5 weeks

    • N/a comparable services

Starting today – AVOID THESE


Reporting Progress Towards Goals

  • The district has to set the dates to “open” the progress reporting window.

  • We’ll choose dates that are approximate to the “norm” (keep in mind 31 different schools).

    • We understand that these dates might not be exact, but it will be close.


Reporting Progress Towards Goals

  • When a reporting period opens up, it will appear based on two things:

    • Frequency the IEP determined progress will be reported, and

    • Dates entered by the district.


Reporting Progress Towards Goals

4.5 1 progress report . . . . 4.5 2 progress Report is due . . . 4.5 3 progress report is due . . .


Reporting Progress Towards Goals

4.5 weeks with IR = abbreviation for every 4.5 with Interim Reports


Enrich Service Log


Service Log

  • Enrich allows folks to log their services

  • This is already common practice among many SLPs, OTs, and PTs.

  • To do this, it requires the school special education coordinator to “set things up” in Enrich.


Service Log

  • To set up the service log:

    • Click the administrative icon at the top of your screen (will only be available until 9/30/2014).

    • Click “view all users”

    • Find the user at your school that you need to set up, click edit (ONLY click users at your school)


Service Log

4) Assign the Team Responsibility

5) Assign the Service Provider Title

6) Under Services, select the service(s) that they will be “providing.” (do not click “signs” for anyone)

-for non SLP/PT/OT (essentially your classroom teachers), you’ll select a lot of options.

7) Click Save

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you change any other information on this page.

DO NOT delete

DO NOT merge

DO NOT change their username


Service Log

  • After you’ve assigned the person rights to provide such a service, go back into the child’s “program tab” dashboard.


Service Log

  • Troubleshooting

    • Sometime after adding appropriate staff, that staff still doesn’t appear in the dropdown (for converted data only)

    • The reason:

      • Enrich defines the options for services and Excent allowed you to freely type.

      • Services can only be provided by associating a person to a service.

    • To fix, administratively edit the service on the converted data and select the appropriate service from the dropdown.

      • Common example:

        • Excent = Speech

        • Enrich = Speech and Language


Exiting


Exiting

  • There is a cheat sheet on the Bookshelf for this, however:

    • Just because they exit in PS, doesn’t exit them from Enrich – all kids with IEPs in Enrich must also be “exited from special education” through “end special education”

    • You might not find them when you type the name in the dropdown, you’ll need to find them through “more search options.”


Exiting

  • Unlike Excent, there is nothing special you do to end a particular service in Enrich – other than to follow non-Enrich procedures: reeval and amend IEP.
