Responsibilities of teachers in california

Responsibilities of Teachers in California

IEP

Section 504

States that no person shall be excluded from any program receiving federal funds. (Civil Rights Law)

Students who may not qualify for Special Education services (IEP) but still have a disability.

Responsibility of general educator to provide accommodations for students.

  • Individualized Education Plan

  • Mandated by IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act)

  • Students with disabilities have goals and objectives to meet annually

  • Assessment-based improvement plans.

  • Modifications are outlined in IEP meetings, which teachers should attend and modifications MUST be provided.


Elbow partners

Elbow Partners

Turn to a partner, tell them one similarity and one difference between an IEP and 504.

How should students be referred to special education response to intervention rti

How should students be referred to Special Education? (Response to Intervention/RtI)

  • Tier 1: Regular instruction in your classroom. Teacher notices a student is having greater struggles learning something than others in the class.

  • Tier 2 : Teacher makes modifications based on what the teacher knows or observes about the student. Take time to see what you can do to help the student in your regular lessons. (30 minutes a day)

  • Tier 3: Student receives more individualized/specialized assistance (60 minutes a day)

  • If there is still a problem, student may be referred to an SST/SRT (student study/success team, student referral team) to be discussed as to if there is enough evidence to be evaluated for special education services.


Research modifications for tier 2 and 3 interventions

Research modifications for Tier 2 and 3 interventions…

  • With 2-3 other people, research one of the following diagnoses

  • Research how you might know if the student could have the disability (signs).

  • Research modifications in the classroom that might help a student who could have this disability.

  • Prepare a 2 minute “what we could do” to share with the class.

  • Autism

Color blind education

Color-Blind Education

  • In a group of 4 content-different partners, discuss the following:

  • What would “color-blind” education be in your subject area?

  • If we are teaching “color-blind” what does that really mean?


Break

Break!


Considerations for safety and accessibility

Considerations for Safety and Accessibility:

Safety

Accessibility

Desk arrangement to allow flow.

Minimize hazards or student placement of hazards (routines).

Reachability of necessary items for completing class tasks.

Modifications to lessons and materials to ensure all students access.

  • Arrangement of pathways to door.

  • Falling or pulled down objects.

  • Controlling dangerous tools (scissors, glue, etc.)

  • Control of students, routines to get them to follow your words.


Create the ideally accessible and safe classroom

Create the ideally accessible and safe classroom!

  • Go to the Classroom Architect!

    • http://classroom.4teachers.org/

    • Or Scholastic: http://teacher.scholastic.com/tools/class_setup/

  • With a partner, or on your own…. Design a classroom for 20-30 students.

    • Include desks

    • Include safety equipment (fire extinguisher, emergency backpack, etc.)

    • Think about how you might use modifications in the classroom and how the design would reflect that.

      If you have ADOBE, save a copy as a pdf and send it to Lara, if not, show her in class!


Policies routines and rules

Policies, Routines and Rules

  • Think about what policies (zero tolerance actions or words, etc), routines and rules you might have that would help enforce safety and accessibility.

  • Make a list of these ideas.

  • See if you can condense your ideas into 5 core principles you want to follow to create a safe and inclusive learning environment.
