OSEP Wants You! Results Driven Accountability

You may recall that in a recent post, I mentioned the press release by the federal Office of Special Education Programs stating that they were suspending their verification visits and contemplating a system driven more by results than compliance.  Here is the old post.

On the OSERS website you can find the press release and a Questions & Answers document as well as a summary of the new acronym RDA (results driven approach.)

Also the OSEP director, Melody Musgrove, has announced a new email address where you can submit your opinion as to what should be included in the new monitoring approach. You can put in your two cents at OSEP-RDA-input@ed.gov OSEP wants your opinion; give it to them!

Also please let me know what you think of this new approach.

  2. do agree, I think the system should be more tailored to the individual. I’d like to think that isn’t the case already, but as I’ve shared in the past, I know too well it isn’t.

    I don’t think you really can put guidelines on something like this that work for everyone.
