what does achievement look like
What Does Achievement Look Like?
  • Students developing independence and progressing in all goal/curriculum areas
  • The IEP is never a “one-shot” – it continues to grow and develop according to individual progress
  • Success is based on programming, not just support
  • Collaboration is key in reaching goals!
