Equity, Inclusion, and Opportunity: Addressing Success Gaps via the SSIP Process

Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference and Big B Add-on Day - Sept 8-11 2014

Presenters introduced a research-based guidance document and self-assessment rubric designed by OSEP's Disproportionality Priority Team to help districts and schools identify the root causes of "success gaps" for some groups of students, thereby helping to improve and equalize results for all students. As an example, presenters used Georgia's SSIP process, focused on graduation for students with disabilities.
