Disproportionality in Special Education | Module 5

This CPIR-produced training module explains what disproportionality is, which students are most often affected, and the consequences disproportionality can and does have, especially on students with disabilities. The module includes a trainer's guide, handouts for participants, and 2 PowerPoint slideshows, all downloadable. Trainers can use these materials to inform audiences about: what IDEA requires states, districts, and schools to do to monitor for disproportionality in special education programs; what happens in a state that finds significant disproportionality in the state or in any of its districts/LEAs; and the correction actions that must be taken.
