The Delaware DOE gave a presentation to the Governor’s Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens (GACEC) on standards-based IEPs in the beginning of this month at GACEC’s fall retreat. I am putting it here so everyone can see exactly what standards based IEPs are, and how they fit into an IEP. You can judge for yourself if they will help or hinder students with disabilities. Or you can comment. I’d like to see what people think!
As for how I feel about these new IEPs, I think anyone who has read any article on this blog would know what I think and why. It’s one thing to have state standards that I don’t agree with, but to push them into an Individualized Education Plan and use the word “Rigor” on the 2nd page is not going to impress me at all.
