:sorry: Just spent two days in a district training about data teams. Never once was the needs of special education students mentioned, though ELL needs was mentioned often. I am in a district that thinks that sped students on the multiply-handicapped/severe/ED/moderate spectrum should be educated in the special day class ONLY, even if the IEP team decides that at least SOME inclusion would be beneficial. I finally had to speak up and ask about WHERE, in their wonderful instructional strategy scenarios, using some strategies for students with special needs fit in. The trainers turned my question over to "district specialists" who answered that students with multiple and severe needs were only included for "social" purposes, not learning opportunities. Aaarrrrrggghhhh!
