To solve this problem one must be an expert in IEP development. The goal is to support students learning academically, emotionally, behaviorally, socially, and adaptive skills so that they will be truly prepared for postsecondary success. We must have high expectations with appropriate supports so that they are able to pursue their dreams through self-determination. We must attend to the whole child.
In an atmosphere of diversity, equity, and inclusion we can create student success, anti -racism environments, and address inequities in academic achievement. We can expand student choices and cultivate schools where every student is respected, valued, affirmed, nurtured, supported and held to high expectations. By understanding how to acquire and implement special education services and section 504 accommodations, students can achieve academic success across all subjects and skills needed for them to achieve their dreams.
