No Child Left Behind Act presents many challenges for school districts as they strive to include all students in the accountability movement. This session will review the major provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act that impact special education. Particular attention will be given to how schools can meet the mandate of highly qualified personnel and at the same time deal with special education teacher shortages. School safety provisions and the discipline of special education students will be reviewed. Many ask the question: “What is the interface between the No Child Left Behind Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act?” The issue will be discussed in this session.
Much of the session will provide practical suggestions on how to include children with disabilities in the assessment system, including the following:
• Alternate Assessment
• Determining Whether The Student With Disabilities Should Participate In State Assessment With Or Without Accommodations
• Preparing The Student For Assessment
• Using Assessment Results To Plan For Instruction
