Special Education Review and Systems Improvement

Are all of your Florida systems and services aligned to guarantee high expectations and support individual success for all students? WestEd’s comprehensive review of special education programs and services includes:

  • On-site classroom observations, interviews, focus groups, and a review of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)
  • Online surveys of teachers, administrators, and stakeholders
  • Comparative data analysis looking at student achievement, risk for non-compliance and/or litigation, and personnel and budget allocations

The special education review results in a report with findings and recommendations for improvement. It also includes benchmark comparisons so you can see how your district compares to state averages and similar education agencies.
