Special Education School Improvement Specialists (SESIS) are part of the Regional Special Education Technical Assistance Center (RSE-TASC). We provide technical assistance to school districts determined by the Office of Special Education to be "needs assistance," "needs intervention," or "needs substantial intervention." We are assigned to targeted schools or districts based upon a regional planning process. The following are considerations in the process:
• Student outcome data for students with disabilities
• Outcome data from State Performance Indicators
When assigned to a district or school, we engage multiple stakeholders in a collaborative, data-driven improvement planning process that identifies goals and activities designed to improve outcomes for students with disabilities.
Additionally, we provide training, coaching and technical assistance on the effective education of students with disabilities throughout the region. The professional development and technical assistance that we provide focuses on literacy, behavioral supports and the delivery of special education services.
