The Experience of Students with Disabilities: C-SAIL’s First-Wave Survey Findings


Twenty20

 The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that all students with disabilities (SWD) receive a free, appropriate public education designed to meet their unique needs to prepare them for post-school education and employment. In the past 20 years, momentum has grown for a supplementary idea: that schools be held accountable for SWD achieving grade-level standards.

Year 1 State Report: Texas

This report examines how the state of Texas is approaching CCR standards implementation during a time of transition. The state has recently implemented revisions to the math standards and is currently revising the English language arts (ELA) standards. The revised ELA standards are expected to be ready for full implementation in the 2018–2019 school year. For the purposes of this report and in keeping with C-SAIL’s focus, we concentrate on implementation of Texas’s ELA and math standards.
