IDEA 2004  Federal law for special education aligned w/NCLB  Emphasis on strengths and data  Post Secondary Education  Addresses transition  Services must be in place by age 16 (14 in Texas)  Appropriate measurable postsecondary based on appropriate transition assessments, related to education/training, employment and independent living if appropriate  Annual goals to support attainment of postsecondary goals  Coordinated set of activities  Courses to support postsecondary goals

10 Training Video - Laws  Length 8 min  Overview of SPED and CTE Overview of SPED and CTE

11 What the CTE teacher hears?  CTE courses must be challenging and rigorous  Opportunity for certifications  Articulated and Dual Credit courses  Offer coherent sequence of courses (Pathways)  Participate in the ARD committee process  CTE courses must prepare students for high-wage, high- skill, or high demand careers  CTE courses should integrate academic and TAKS/STAAR objectives because student success in these areas is one way CTE is evaluated  Career and Technical Student Organizations

12 What the CTE teacher hears from Business and Industry?  Meet the needs of business and industry  Build partnerships  Prepare students for post-secondary or the world of work  Student certifications  Work-based learning opportunities

13 What the Special Education Teacher Hears  Students must be given a free and appropriate public education  Education must occur in the least restrictive environment  Special Education students are expected to be college and career ready as is every other student  CTE courses can provide that training  CTE teachers must attend an ARD committee meeting where CTE class is considered  Needs of the student must be determined first and then placement (general education, resource, CTE, etc.) must be determined  At ARD committee meetings, modifications/accommodations must be addressed  Modifications and accommodations individualize instruction and enable students with disabilities to be successful in CTE classes

14 Training Video  3 min  The ARD committee The ARD committee

15 ARD Committee Process and the CTE Teacher  Scheduling Tips (big picture)  Competency Sheets (small picture… individual classes)  When attending the ARD, be prepared to discuss modifications and/or accommodations that will work for your curriculum and your classroom environment.  When the student is not your student, then serve as Career Advisor, using “Tips” & “Competencies” to help student/parent understand realistic role of career preparation and need for CTE classes when student is not University-bound  Remember, CTE is very different from the traditional lecture and textbook based classroom  Students may need accommodations and modifications that are unique to that student
