Inclusion of Students with Disabilities in School Accountability Systems: Interim Report
J. Harr-Robins (au)
Formerly excluded from measures of educational performance, students with disabilities (SWDs) are now explicitly recognized in federal and state accountability systems. At the national level, the 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) laid the foundation for accountability of SWDs by requiring states to include these students in state and district assessments and to report their participation and performance. This requirement was further reinforced by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as reauthorized in 2001, which established SWDs as an explicit student subgroup for the purpose of determining whether schools make adequate yearly progress (AYP). As part of a national assessment that examined how well the IDEA is achieving its purposes, this study provides policy-relevant information about the education of SWDs by examining their inclusion in school accountability systems, the use of school practices that may relate to their educational outcomes, and SWDäó»s achievement in relation to school accountability status. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
