Coordinating Title I and Special Education: Differences, Similarities and Making It All Work

Price: $250.00


Presented by Laurie Matzke

The ESEA holds Title I teachers, principals, and administrators accountable for the achievement of all students -- including students with disabilities. But special ed instruction is governed not only by the ESEA but also by the IDEA, which has a very different accountability structure and focuses on the individual, rather than the group. Title I staff, special educators, and district and school administrators need to understand both laws as well as how to tap their resources to achieve AYP.

To meet this challenge, Title I and special ed staff need to be on the same page and learn how to integrate the ESEA and the IDEA. Laurie Matzke, Title I director for the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction, will walk you through the two laws and share ideas for collaboration and best practice instruction that will improve the performance of all educationally at-risk students.

In this 90-minute recorded audio conference, you'll learn:

  • How Title I and the IDEA are similar, and how to align their components for seamless implementation in the classroom
  • How Title I and the IDEA differ, and how to ensure all requirements are met
  • Ways Title I and special ed can work together to maximize the resources of both programs
  • Strategies that will help you meet IEP goals and get to AYP
  • And more
