Purpose: The goal of this project is to offer increased supports to high-need schools implementing statewide initiatives (e.g., a new A-F Grading Accountability System, a teacher and principal evaluation system, implementation of the Common Core State Standards, and a framework for Response to Intervention (RtI)) to ensure that students with disabilities receive effective services and supports.

Method: Activities of this project include: intensive supports through school-wide professional development; encouragement of larger school team participation; administration of more frequent and targeted support through the use of technology, including a robust web-based content management system; provision of a searchable Knowledge Base; online training and coaching; and webinars.
