It’s Time: A Revolution in IEP/504 Integration for K-12

Date & Time
Friday, March 22, 2024 - 4:20 PM PDT  
Grand AB  

For the most part, IEP/504s are still developed separately from other processes and technologies used in K12. Special ed teams spend lots of time and energy on admin tasks to ensure students get the needed support and meet the letter of the law.

But with technology advances affecting nearly every aspect of how all kids learn, it’s time to radically rethink how IEP/504s get developed, implemented, and tracked – targeting tight integration with not only the existing tech, but also with curriculum selection/assignment, progress monitoring, assessment, and teacher development and training.

Many paper-based IEP/504 processes can be streamlined with tools that make for easy collaboration, and integrated with assistive technologies that give experts more time to observe and improve outcomes.

In our session, we'll explore:

  1. Using tools/workflows that create efficiencies throughout the IEP/504 process
  2. Including special ed requirements in curriculum evaluation
  3. Training on effectively combining accessible educational materials with assistive/supportive tech
  4. Leveraging LMS functionality to support IEP/504 tracking
  5. Integrating parents, caregivers, and other support members.

With the massive challenge of addressing learning loss from the pandemic underway, it is imperative that we use the opportunity to revolutionize how IEP/504s work in K12. That gives us the best chance to ensure those students who are the most vulnerable don’t get left behind.
