    Organization Content Structure


The mandates

The Mandates

  • NCLB focuses on high expectations for ALL students.

    • ALL students are assessed and progress is reported.

    • Expectations are specified for each grade level.

    • Students with the most significant cognitive disabilities may use alternate assessment.


The mandates1

The Mandates

  • IDEA emphasizes the importance of access to general curriculum for ALL students with disabilities.

  • Access is provided through meaningful instruction and engagement.

  • Other educational needs are important.

    • Access must be insured.

  • Reading Comprehension

    • Standard: The student uses the reading process effectively and constructs meaning from a variety of text.


Benchmarks

Benchmarks

  • Most standards have K-12 progressions of of benchmarks.

  • Benchmarks are written for each grade level, kindergarten through grade 8, and combined grades 9-10 and 11-12.

  • Grade level benchmarks replace GLEs.

Access points for students with significant cognitive disabilities

Access Points for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities

Access points describe challenging learning expectations for students with significant cognitive disabilities.


Who are the access points designed for

Who Are the Access Points Designed For?

  • Only students with significant cognitive disabilities

  • Students who meet the criteria for alternate assessment

  • Other students with disabilities should be working on the regular SSS with accommodations as necessary


How were the access points developed

How Were the Access Points Developed?

  • Project staff

  • DOE staff (ESE, General Ed)

  • Florida educators and parents

    • Writing teams (100+ participants, July 2005)

    • Online review (statewide)

    • Teacher interviews

    • Final review (300+ educators, July 2006)

Access Points: NCLB Guidelines

  • Must provide access to the general curriculum

  • Must be aligned with the state’s academic content standards

  • Must reflect the highest learning standards possible for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities


What is an access point

What is an Access Point?

  • A restatement of the SSS benchmark that:

    • captures the core intent of the benchmark

    • describes a different level of complexity(less complex skills or prerequisite skills)

  • Accommodations (not stated—are provided)


Core intent of a benchmark

Core Intent of a Benchmark

Differentiating progression within and across grades

Differentiating Progression Within and Across Grades

  • The terminology used in the access points describes three types of information:

    • Knowledge/skill

    • Representation of information

    • Context/setting


Knowledge skill

Knowledge/Skill

  • The verb and additional content that reflect the core intent of the revised SSS benchmarks:

    • Respond to a familiar person.

    • Copy letters and words.

    • Write narratives about events.


Representation of information

Representation of Information

  • The type and format of information presented to the student or expressed by the student:

Person

Concrete object

Picture (photo, drawing)

Gesture or sign

Symbol

Word and/or phrase

Read-aloud text

Text


Representation of information1

Representation of Information

The student will:

  • Respond to familiar persons and objects.

  • Copy letters and words.

  • Identify characters, settings, actions, and events in read-aloud prose.

  • Identify the author’s purpose (e.g., to tell a story or give information) in text.


Context setting

Context/Setting

  • A description of the situation within which the knowledge/skill will be demonstrated

  • For example: routine, daily activity, classroom activity, school activity, real-world situation, real-world or community setting


Context setting1

Context/Setting

The student will:

  • Match familiar objects to tasks in routines.

  • Recognize pictures or symbols paired with words depicting a sequence in familiar activities.

  • Adjust voice and body movement as appropriate for speaking in real-world situations.


Some access points repeat across grade levels

Some Access Points Repeat Across Grade Levels

  • The SSS benchmark is the same across grade levels.

  • The same skill is applied to materials of increasing difficulty level.

Reminders

Reminders

  • Curriculum is determined at the IEP meeting and documented on insert D as to whether student will access Sunshine State Standards or SSS with Access Points (modified SSS).

  • Students accessing a general education curriculum should only receiveaccommodations and these accommodations should be documented on Insert D of the IEP.

  • Students accessing a modified curriculum will follow the Sunshine State Standards with Access Points.


Grading

Grading

  • Students pursuing a general education curriculum must be graded according to grade level competencies/benchmarks.

  • Students pursing a modified curriculum are graded on their grade level SSS Access Points according to their level of complexity (independent, supported , or participatory).

  • The teacher must document comment #48 on the student’s report card which states that the student is working on a modified curriculum
