1 Matrix of Services Basics 101 / Update

2 Objectives  Participants will gain basic knowledge of Florida Education Funding Plan (FEFP).  Participants will gain basic knowledge of the Matrix of Services process.  Participants will learn to appropriately complete the Matrix of Services for student funding.  Participants will provide training for other staff members as appropriate.

3 Brief Historical Perspective:  FEFP: Florida Education Finance Program  : Funding based on weighted program eligibility and minutes of direct service  Identified as barrier for implementing flexible service delivery for students with disabilities (SWD)  In 1997, the Florida legislature adopted the revised ESE/FEFP funding model for statewide implementation.  Matrix of Services is the cornerstone of the ESE funding model.

4 Historical Perspectives  Since 1997, matrices are required for all exceptional education students.  The Matrix of Services is completed at least annually for each student.

5 The Revised Handbook 2004  The handbook is intended to be used with the Matrix of Services training and as a reference when completing matrices on students.  Each domain is described in detail.  Example services are provided.  Case studies are included throughout the handbook.  Frequently asked questions and their answers are found within each section.

6 Matrix of Services Overview:  5 Domains are used to group the types of services.  5 Levels are used to describe the frequency and intensity of services within each domain.  The total number of points results in a rating of Support Level 1 (251), Support Level 2 (252), Support Level 3 (253), Support Level 4 (254) and Support Level 5 (255).

7 Matrix of Services Overview:  Matrix of Services is completed using information found in the student’s IEP. It should reflect the individualized services and supports which will be provided to each student as documented by the IEP committee.  Districts must ensure that matrices reflect current services. If services change as a result of an IEP team decision, a new Matrix of Services must be completed.  The Matrix of Services is an official auditable document.

8 Matrix of Services How It Works!  The Matrix of Services is divided into five sections called Domains that are addressed on the IEP. They are:  Curriculum and Learning  Social / Emotional Behavior  Independent Functioning  Health Care  Communication

9 Matrix of Services How It Works!  Each Domain has five levels  These levels range from Level 1 (lowest) to Level 5 (highest)  The factors that are used to determine the levels are:  Frequency of the service provided  Intensity of the service provided  In some cases, qualifications of the person providing the service. providing the service.

10 Which Students in Duval County Must Have a Matrix?  ALL ESE students  McKay Scholarship students  Students in Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) receiving exceptional education services  Students enrolled in charter schools and private schools who are receiving Duval exceptional education services

11 The Matrix of Services

12 Completing the Matrix  When completing the Matrix of Services in ENCORE!, the student information will be automatically pre-populated.  In ENCORE!, the Matrix of Services event contains a dropdown list of services that address possible needs in each domain.

13 Completing the Matrix  The rater should begin by selecting all services that will be provided to the student in the area of Curriculum and Learning (Domain A) as reflected on the completed IEP (via PLOPs, goals and objectives, services and supports).  The same procedures are followed for Domains B-E.

14 Special Consideration Points  Once Domains A-E are completed, the rater should determine if any additional points will be added by checking the Special Considerations statements that apply.  Special Considerations information can be found on pages in the handbook.

15 Levels How They Work!

16 Level 1  The student requires no services or assistance beyond that which is normally available to all students.

17 Level 2  The student is receiving assistance on a basis or receives adaptations, assistance, or services. Terms used in an IEP that reflect Level 2 services:  The student is receiving assistance on a periodic basis or receives minor adaptations, assistance, or services. Terms used in an IEP that reflect Level 2 services:  Consultation  Monthly  Adaptations  Simple

18 Level 3  The student is receiving accommodations to the learning environment that are more complex or services on a more frequent schedule.
