  • (#DIW Podcast) #Youth with #Disabilities in the Juvenile Justice System and Access to #Education | Day In Washington
    relevant resources to help with these students reintegration into the school setting or participation in programs Now let me pause and say that students with disabilities represent a large portion of students in correctional facilities National reports put it at about 1 3 of the population of students in juvenile facilities with some having as few as 9 and others as high as 78 Let me give you my top 7 key points made in this letter regarding IDEA Part B requirements as they pertain to students with disabilities Absent a specific exception all IDEA protections apply to students with disabilities in correctional facilities and their parents Every agency at any level of government that is involved in the provision of special education and related services to students in correctional facilities must ensure the provision of a Free Appropriate Public Education even if other agencies share that responsibility States must have interagency agreements or other methods for ensuring coordination so that it is clear which agency or agencies are responsible for providing or paying for services necessary for these students with disabilities in correctional facilities State Education Agencies must exercise general supervision over all educational programs for students with disabilities in correctional facilities unless covered by an exception to ensure that their educational programs meet State education standards and IDEA Part B requirements and that also means ensuring that those same students are included in general State and district assessments States and their public agencies must have procedures in place to identify locate and evaluate students who are in correctional facilities who may have a disability under the IDEA and are in need of special education and related services Remember that wide variance in percentages of students with disabilities in correctional facilities I mentioned earlier 9 to 78 Part of the reason for that maybe be related to the question of how much has been invested in identifying and assessing students for disabilities versus assumptions that it is behavioral or that they re problem kids just a bit of opinion there Unless there is a specific exception all IEP content requirements apply to students with disabilities in correctional facilities including the special education and related services and supplementary aids and services And of course and I really like that this is spelled out They cannot routinely place all students with disabilities in correctional facilities in classes that include only students with disabilities and that any exclusion from the classroom is particularly harmful for students with disabilities in correctional facilities As always I encourage you to read and come to your own opinion Links are available in the comments This is Day Al Mohamed hoping you continue to be well and be informed Thank you for listening Day in Washington is a product of the Lead On Network Comments and opinions expressed in this podcast should in no way be considered representative of opinions statements or policies of any organizations affiliations employers or agencies connected with the host Audio production provided

  • #DIW Episode 1 – #IDEA Requirements and Results-Driven Accountability | Day In Washington
    informed Today s episode is focused on Education and in particular a recent change in focus from the U S Department of Education Just this month the Department announced that it was rethinking the way it determines success when it comes to educating the 6 5 million students with disabilities in public schools I used air quotes because they aren t thinking they are doing This is a change that has already been thought about and will now be demanded of school systems across the country This new change is in how schools will measure success for students with disabilities and the emphasis is on outcomes the specific term they re using is Results Driven Accountability Secretary Duncan spoke about this new framework Secretary Duncan Clip beginning with Today You see until now the Department s primary focus was to determine whether states were meeting procedural requirements such as the quality and timely collection of data timelines for evaluations due process hearings and so on and so forth Technical requirements compliance requirements But these requirements haven t really reflected how students with disabilities are actually doing Looking at the National Assessment of Education al Progress NAEP reporting less than 10 percent eighth graders with disabilities are scoring as proficient in reading 10 Now I ve already seen comments from folks asking about students with the most significant disabilities However according to the National Center for Learning disabilities more than 80 of students in Special Education do not have a cognitive impairment that would prevent them from learning at the same level as their peers Under the older compliance measures 38 states met IDEA requirements Remember that 10 Here is the difference between looking at compliance and looking at outcomes And as you can see under the newer outcome measures which looks at things like participation in state assessments proficiency gaps and performance in reading and math on the NAEP tests only 18 states meet IDEA requirements So a little more from Secretary Duncan and his new Results Driven Outcomes Secretary Duncan Clip beginning with RDA is Secretary Duncan is right about expectations Research has shown that students with disabilities when provided the right kind of instruction supports and accommodations they can indeed perform at the same level as their peers We know that this is a great step in the right direction to make sure there is a concrete way to measure student outcomes To know that we re impacting student achievement However just like students schools need the right kind of supports to be successful Let me go back to that number of only 10 of 8th graders with disabilities reading at grade level That isn t something that will change overnight with or without new measurements The Department of Education has committed 50 million dollars over the next 5 years to help states meet these new IDEA requirements To be frank this really is very big change and the next few years will likely be difficult Moving forward

  • Educational Testing, Students with Disabilities, and a Letter from the EEOC | Day In Washington
    United States a systematic disenfranchisement of certain groups of American citizens By allowing schools to not be responsible for the learning of individuals with disabilities we set a dangerous precedent Not only does this let schools off the hook for serving a population it has found difficult to educate it also created a feeder group in which to install any students deemed unteachable or unable to learn Suddenly disability is merged into a group considered at risk and suddenly that at risk group has a significant number of Brown Black ELL and students with disabilities In many school districts these at risk students were removed from data contention entirely and instead of a diploma offered a certificate of completion Additional allowances were made for students that attended school but would never receive a high school diploma and before America had time to notice we had created an additional education system In one system we prepared students to be valuable contributing members of society and in the other system we disenfranchised young people and decided that they would never have a future Who are these students who have certificates instead of diplomas and what happens to a student with a certificate after they leave high school The point that the conservative bloggers get right is that the High School diploma has indeed served as the marker for basic workplace readiness in our country Without one you are not eligible for work at most jobs in the country Additionally you may even be barred from military service and in some cases even enter food or factory service positions that have been traditionally set aside for citizens that have little to no education And speaking of citizens you can forget working with them as well because the jobs in our country that we leave to those without high school education are those that we have relegated to illegal and migrant worker populations That s right without a high school diploma you have the work qualifications and ability for advancement of an undocumented worker The part the bloggers get wrong however is the fact that these individuals did not choose this fate We are not discussing a group of people who decided that high school was not for them or made a decision to follow Phish around for the past decade These are citizens that have completed their requirements with their peers but have effectively been disenfranchised by the state It used to be that if you graduated from high school you got a diploma and were then eligible to enter the workforce however for many students with disabilities a high school diploma is not an option because of their participation in Special Education programs or use of accommodations on the exit exam Because many students with disabilities have been forced to accept Certificates of Completion rather than Diplomas they have now been rendered unhireable for most jobs It is not due to laziness a desire to be a slacker or not work it
