Background information:
Seattle Public School’s Special Education Department is undergoing a Comprehensive Corrective Action Plan (C-CAP) to help improve results for our students in special education. As part of this plan, the department is working with experts from Louisiana State University and the TIERS Group for consultation on activities related to C-CAP targets.

TIERS visited the District this spring to collect data for initial analysis on the special education department. They will present the information learned from this analysis at the July 22 meeting to families. The report will also be available online by 7/21/2014 at http://bit.ly/SpecialEducationSPS
