STAKEHOLDERS (Unified-many voices)



1.  Continue important conversations based on data and provide your ideas/recommendations on how we can improve with targeted and focused activities for our students in California.

Agenda today provides an opportunity to learn more about 3 indicators and activities around those indicators ( 2 round table discussions and 1 Indicator workgroup in the PM).  Where possible, we have worked diligently together to continually “shape” your ideas/recommendations into improvement activities where feasible and possible.  Many of you will hear/see that some of these activities have been completed, continued, or added to the APR.

Indicator clusters short overview

2.  Receive important information on compliance determinations and have some time to discuss with others.

3.  As in the previous mtgs., work in smaller workgroups, revisit the indicator, measurement, data and explanation, improvement activities, and recommendations- report back to the larger group.

Again, welcome, and thank you for your consistent and thoughtful participation in this important work to improve our programs and services for students with disabilities in California.
