Cracking the Code: Making Sense of the Evaluation Process in Special Education (NH)
Evaluations are at the center of the special education process, the delivery of a FAPE, measuring progress, and ensuring a safe school. Yet the evaluation process itself is often poorly understood and can often mystify more than illuminate.
Presenters Jerry Zelin, Erin Feltes, and Eric Herlan seek to Crack the Code – making sense of those challenging issues that surround the use of evaluations in school. Among the topics to be addressed are:
- The role of evaluations in the special ed process
- Understanding the "strategy" for evaluations
- Resolving inconsistent data in your test results
- Functional Behavior Assessments and Student Discipline
- Risk Assessments and Student Discipline
- Special Education rules for evaluations
- Accessing test protocols
- Independent Evaluations: When to say NO!
- Policies your school board may adopt governing special ed evaluations
- And more!
In addition to answering all your evaluation questions, the presenters will be staging their own "mock" independent evaluation due process hearing, showing you just how to do your own hearing if you refuse to fund an independent evaluation.
Evaluations are often at the center of much that you do in your school, from Finding FAPE to Breaking Bad! Jerry, Erin, and Eric will make sure that you leave here able to Crack the Code in your evaluation process.
