2 Centralized ServicesECISD Special Education Diagnosticians and Licensed Specialists in School Psychology are moving to a centralized services model. The goal is 100% compliance with state and federal guidelines while providing quality customer service to our students, campuses, and district.
4 Centralized Services Overview Assessment Team The assessment team will be responsible for completion of all initial and reevaluation evaluations within the timelines provided through regulations. The evaluations will be comprehensive and informative in providing data related to eligibility, interventions, and student outcomes. In addition to evaluation of students, the assessment team will also be responsible for attending ARDC in which they must present assessment data, make educational recommendations, and provide support for the campus in developing appropriate plans for students. Included in the evaluation process, the assessment team will present their assessment data to an Arena Staffing team for review and group recommendations for additional testing, collaborative support, and peer review for growth. Upon completion of the Arena Staffing, the assessment team will be required to complete a Comprehensive Individual Evaluation Report reflecting the necessary legal requirements, as well as informative data to support positive student outcomes. The presentation of the assessment data will help facilitate campus involvement at all levels regardless of eligibility determination.
5 Centralized Services Overview ARD Team The ARD team will be responsible for completion of all ARDC meetings within the timelines provided through regulations. The ARDC meetings will be completed following the local, state, and federal guidelines within the necessary timelines. The meetings will include all necessary components for compliance as well as provide a structure for the campus to ensure high expectations, interventions, and accommodations based on each student’s individual strengths and weaknesses. The ARD team will be responsible for scheduling the ARDC meetings with the campus and assessment personnel (if necessary) to enable compliance within timelines and accommodate stakeholder schedules and needs. During the ARDC meeting, the ARD team member will provide guidance for administration in supporting consistent use of an agenda for the completion of the ARDC meeting. In addition, the ARD team member will facilitate in a timely manner while meeting all requirements for discussion of Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP), development of Individual Education Plans, and make excellent decisions for state assessment based on the students’ abilities and needs. Upon completion of the ARDC meeting, the ARD team member will provide copies of the meeting paperwork to the campus for disbursement to the parents, vested teachers, and necessary staff. Completion of the state file for compliance will be required.
