Supports for Students with Disabilities in the Math in Common Districts
As California school districts implement new math standards, thousands of students with disabilities are falling behind. On the 2016 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, 37 percent of California students (grades 3–8 and 11) met or exceeded math standards, while only 11 percent of students with disabilities did.
Under California’s new accountability system, 163 school districts were flagged as requiring Level 2 support, or “differentiated assistance,” due at least in part for failing to meet state targets for their students with disabilities subgroup on state priorities.
This Math in Common report looks at two districts that have improved math achievement for their students with disabilities, and offers recommendations for other districts seeking to do the same.
