We are looking to build capacity for supporting our members and their respective schools in assuring that each and every student in the state of Washington receives the highest quality education. In addition to the support we receive from the Washington Education Association and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for our work with the Special Ed Cadre, we are also engaged in projects that advance the cause. Currently, this includes:
Closing the Gap
Aiming to increase the capacity of Washington Schools to make general education classrooms more accessible to special populations, and in the process, to improve instruction and learning outcomes for all students.
The Consistency Index Initiative
SESC leaders are partners in an OSPI initiative to assure congruency between (a) the student’s sufficient evaluation, (b) the development of a properly formulated IEP, and (c) the provision of Specially Designed Instruction to that student.
