Avoid state-mandated IDEA sanctions in your district with an up-to-date understanding of the critical factors that contribute to overrepresentation in special education.

Former OCR insider Sue Gamm, Esq., guides you through uncovering key problem areas in your district’s special ed identification policies, practices and procedures. Then she gives you guidance and tools to help you combat them. Plus, you discover how the IDEA defines “significant disproportionality” as well as three major considerations for using Federal funds to support RTI initiatives.

Four comprehensive chapters address the essential parts to creating an efficient and effective special ed program:

  • Monitoring Framework

What's more, Disproportionality in Special Education includes the latest detection and monitoring tools; electronic support for RTI implementation; statistical measures; state performance plan indicators; as well as relevant IDEA provisions.
