Meaningful Participation in Statewide Assessments

October 1 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

| Free

This training focuses on increasing educator knowledge about federal requirements and options for participation in statewide assessments through the lens of ensuring that students with disabilities are able to meaningfully participate in the assessments required under ESSA. This training will cover how meaningful participation can be accomplished through ensuring that students have appropriate accessibility supports and accommodations and that those supports are selected systematically, based on student need. This training would be suitable for districts and schools to improve participation rates and performance of students with disabilities in statewide assessments.
