Measuring Student Progress on the IEP
Progress monitoring is built into the IDEA and the IEP’s that are produced. Even in times of crisis, like the current pandemic, we must rely on the data. This workshop will focus on strategies and methods of tracking progress monitoring during virtual learning so parents will be able to support requests for compensatory services from the school systems, if needed.
The webinar is free to attend, but registration is required. Prior to the webinar, a Zoom link will be sent to you.
