Special Education Technical Assistance

Districts are encouraged to access technical assistance resources in order to improve performance across the compliance and results indicators of the State Performance Plan. In addition, districts may be required to access technical assistance as a part of enforcement actions related to district determination status.

Technical assistance resources are appropriate for teachers, administrators, parents, students, related services and other staff, and the general community. These resources may also be used for the development of professional learning communities, peer review activities, mentoring for new personnel, staff and parent orientations, and student empowerment.
