The Delaware DOE gave a presentation to the Governor’s Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens (GACEC) on standards-based IEPs in the beginning of this month at GACEC’s fall retreat. I am putting it here so everyone can see exactly what standards based IEPs are, and how they fit into an IEP. You can judge for yourself if they will help or hinder students with disabilities. Or you can comment. I’d like to see what people think!
As for how I feel about these new IEPs, I think anyone who has read any article on this blog would know what I think and why. It’s one thing to have state standards that I don’t agree with, but to push them into an Individualized Education Plan and use the word “Rigor” on the 2nd page is not going to impress me at all.
This article is for all the special education advocates in Delaware! I know quite a few of you, but I want to put up a list of who you are on here as well as the best contact information you would like known publicly. Someone in the mental health field asked me for a list, so I thought this would be a good way to do this. I don’t want to give anyone contact information that I know on a personal basis. Please email me at email@example.com or write a comment on here. Thanks everyone!
Lots of interesting history in this article and understanding common core and how it came about and how governors and the feds are running everything when it comes to education. This is a MUST READ!!!!
Kilroy hit all the right notes on this one. I love his article titles!
