SPECIFIC LEARNING DISABILITIES DETERMINATION

THE DISTRICT USES A PATTERN OF STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES PROCESS FOR THE DETERMINATION OF A SPECIFIC LEARNING DISABILITY FOR ALL BUILDINGS AND ALL GRADES IN THE DISTRICT AND INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:

1.  The student does not achieve adequately for the student's age or to meet State approved grade-level standards in one or more of the areas identified at 34 CFR 300.309 (a) (1) (i) when provided with learning experiences and instruction appropriate for the student's age or State approved grade-level standards; and 

2.  The student exhibits a pattern of strengths and weaknesses in performance, achievement or both, relative to age, State approved grade-level standards, or intellectual development, that is determined by the Multifactored Evaluation Team to be relevant to the identification of a Specific Learning Disability, using appropriate assessments, consistent with the IDEA Evaluation Procedures and Additional Requirements for Evaluations and Reevaluations.

QUESTIONS ???
The Monroe County Intermediate School District, along with Bedford Public Schools, works collaboratively to identify and develop appropriate supports for students suspected of a disability.

STATE ASSESSMENT PROGRAMS

Read the letter about Michigan Public Schools participation in State Assessment Programs.

As with any summative standardized test, these assessments are one snapshot in time of how our students perform. We use data generated by these tests, in conjunction with other student assessment data gathered throughout the year, to look for ways to improve. Bedford's Balanced Assessment Team and school improvement efforts continuously focus on ways to improve the education for each of our students.
