Improving the Instructional Program

School and system leaders work to improve the instructional program for students with special education needs in a number of ways, including

  • observing classroom instruction, and providing constructive feedback to teachers
  • provide teachers with the opportunity to observe effective instructional approaches among colleagues, including differentiated instruction and  Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  • participating with staff in their instructional improvement work, including developing quality Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for students with special education needs
