Important Breakout Information:
Stacy Smith, Assistant Commissioner for Learning Services and Lisa Tyler, Director of Student Support Services will wrap up the McCommon Special Education Institute with a high-energy discussion around raising the achievement bar for all students. The Arkansas ESSA plan errs on the side of inclusion for equity by including as many students within schools as possible in the support and accountability system, with a high value placed on students growth for all students and subpopulations.  Ms. Smith and Ms. Tyler will outline how the Arkansas ESSA plan reflects supports that are specific to students with disabilities, and how those supports align with the special education State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) to drive student outcomes and decisions impacting each child's opportunity for success beyond high school
