This interactive presentation begins with an overview of the California Department of Education’s Supporting Inclusive Practices (SIP) project, which is a collaborative effort between project the Riverside County Office of Education as a southern California partner and El Dorado County/Charter SELPA as a northern California partner. The purpose of SIP is to provide technical assistance to local educational agencies to build, implement, sustain, monitor, and scale up evidence-based practices within integrated educational systems of student support to increase inclusion of students with disabilities in general education settings. The SIP project assists the California Department of Education, Special Education Division in meeting federal requirements under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Part B, and the California State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report Indicators 5, 6, and 7 focused on least restrictive environment and preschool student outcomes, and Indicator 3, statewide assessments specifically for students in preschool through third grade. For this important project to be successful, it is imperative that the most capable teams from both general education and special education arenas come together to support all learners viewing progress through results driven accountability and an educational justice lens. This presentation will provide an overview of SIP, project outcomes, and expansion plans as an exemplar technical assistance support for LEAs statewide; enhance participants’ understanding of improvement science and what it means in their school communities beginning with a shared vision, mission values, and goals; and review online resources with participants including access to free webinars and training events around specially designed instruction, universal design for learning, co-teaching, student engagement, organizational health, policy to practice, and professional learning communities.
