    Strategic Support Plan (SSP) Overview and Planning (Online)

    The purpose of the SSP is to guide LEAs through the process of prioritizing RDA indicators contributing to low performance. It is designed to assist the LEA's area(s) of growth to improve outcomes identified within the RDA performance indicators. The SSP is a tool used annually as part of the LEA's continuous improvement process to prioritize essential program elements, timelines, milestones, metrics, and task owners. When implemented with fidelity, the SSP assists in identifying district goals to support root causes of low performance related to RDA determination levels. This virtual session will introduce your leadership team to the elements of the SSP, review tools in this process, begin working on the SSP, and create a plan to complete the work back in the district. It is recommended that your team attend the same session together.

    Self-Assessment Overview and Planning (Online)

    The purpose of the special education self-assessment is to assist Local Education Agency (LEA) leadership teams in evaluating and improving their educational program serving students with disabilities receiving special education services. The special education self-assessment is completed annually by all LEAs, regardless of RDA framework determinations, and is intended to engage leadership teams in proactively addressing special education compliance and support student performance. This virtual session will introduce your leadership team to the elements of the required annual self-assessment, review the components, engage in the process with a scenario, and create a plan to complete the work back in your district. This session has pre-work and is divided into 2 parts.
