  25. Update from Significant Disproportionally Symposium Julie Brauchle copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com

  26. Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) Rationale : If we can identify and address learning difficulties early, we have a better chance of “fixing” those difficulties quickly. If we wait to identify learning difficulties, we run the risk of increasing the remediation time. An LEA can use up to 15% of IDEA Part B funds to provide CEIS for students who are not identified as needing special education or related services copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com

  27. HOW can the funds be spent? • Supplement – not supplant • Professional development • Providing educational and behavioral evaluations (not to be used to qualify a student for special education) • Providing educational services and supports (reading, math and/or RtI specialists; tutoring programs; supplemental programs; using related service personnel) • Tier 2 and 3 RtI activities copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com

  28. On WHOM may CEIS funds be spent? • Students K-12 (particularly K-3) • Not receiving ANY special education services • Students who have received special ed in the past, but are currently not receiving special ed ARE eligible copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com

  29. What are the reporting REQUIREMENTS? • An LEA is required to annually report to the state on the number of children receiving EIS and the number of those children who eventually are identified as children with disabilities and receive special education and related services during the preceding TWO YEAR period. copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com

  30. EIS Guidance Document • MOE and EIS are interconnected. The decisions that an LEA makes about the amount of funds that it uses for one purpose affect the amount that it may use for the other. The guidance document at the following link has this information in depth: http://www.tea.state.tx.us/special.ed/eis/eis-qanda.doc copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com

  31. Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) video explanation http://idea.ed.gov/explore/view/p/%2Croot%2Cdynamic%2CVideoClips%2C16%2C copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com

  32. Significant Disproportionality Symposium States must collect and examine to determine if significant disproportionality based on race or ethnicity exists in: • 6 of the disability categories (LD, MR, S/L impairments, OHI, Autism, & ED) • Placement of children in particular educational settings • The incidence, duration, and type of disciplinary action copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com

  33. Significant Disproportionality Symposium • The states decide what is “significant.” • TEA first looked at PBMAS 15 & 16 and SPP 9 & 10 • Then they ran further statistical reports. • They compared various race/ethnicities to each other and looked at the odds/ratio, i.e. African American v. Asian • First identified 90 districts then arbitrarily set the cut point at 2.5 and then identified 41 districts. • The cut point can change. • Encourage districts to look at their data for patterns. • Several really good tools developed by Region1 and 13. copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com

  34. Statewide Assessments: Valerie Trevino • TEA updates: • Changes have been made to the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills*Alternate Assessment. • We are pleased to have the opportunity for TAKS-Alt representatives from TEA present to Region 2 on what's new for the 2008-2009 TAKS-Alt on November 10. • Please visit our website to register www.esc2.us.  We will offer 2 repeated sessions.  Morning session workshop #0821722.  Afternoon (repeated) session # 0821734. copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com
