Nclb and special ed
NCLB and Special Ed

  • NCLB requires each state to establish challenging academic standards for students - including students with disabilities

  • Beginning with the 2005-06 school year students in 3rd through 8th grades plus one year in grades 10 to 12 are to be assessed in the areas of Language Arts and Math

  • Beginning in the 2007-08 school year Science assessment will be administered to students in grades 3-5, 6-9, and 10-12 (one grade in each level)


Nclb and california
NCLB and California

  • California currently assesses

    • Grades 2-8 in E/LA and Math and Grade 5 in Science

    • Grades 9-11 in E/LA, Math, and Grade 9 in Science

    • Grades 4 and 7 in Writing

  • California has an approved Accommodation / Modification matrix which can be downloaded:

    • http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/hs/accmod.asp

  • California has an alternate assessment for students with the most significant disabilities - CAPA


Selecting the standards
Selecting the Standards

  • October 2001 the Alternate Assessment Advisory Workgroup reviewed grades K-12 California content standards for E/LA, Math, Science, History-Social Science

  • Standards most appropriate for students with significant disabilities were prioritized

    • A priority variable from 1-5, with 5 being the highest was assigned to each standard

    • The content standards were viewed as a continuum of skills with functional skills being prerequisites for the more advanced academic curriculum skills


Selecting the standards1
Selecting the Standards

  • The committee used the following questions to guide their selection:

    • Does this standard reflect an important curriculum goal for all students, including students with significant cognitive disabilities?

    • Can a functional performance indicator be written to show progress toward mastery of the standard?

    • Could this standard be considered appropriate if communication modes are expanded to include modified input and output tools? (i.e., communication boards, sign language, pictorial representation)

  • At no time were any standards changed!


Functional performance indicators
Functional Performance Indicators

  • Were developed by a representative group of California teachers

  • Link functional skills to the standard

  • Are listed somewhat sequentially

  • Were intended to help teachers tie functional skills to core content areas

  • Are not an all inclusive list

  • Became the basis for CAPA


Updated seaco curriculum guide
Updated SEACO Curriculum Guide

  • Based on the subset of standards and functional performance indicators established by the Alternate Assessment Advisory Workgroup in October 2001

  • Intended to help teachers navigate through the core content standards

  • Not a scope and sequence

  • Broken into two distinct areas

    • Core Content Access

    • Instructional Best Practices


Standards based ieps
Standards-Based IEPs

  • Tie individual student needs to state standards

  • Show access and progress in the general education curriculum

  • Allow general ed and special ed to speak the same language

  • Are used as a framework for teaching

  • Tell what to teach, not how to teach

  • Present many challenges for teachers of students with significant disabilities


Core content access
