    South Carolina SSIP Partners’ Inventory

    As a part of developing their SSIP Phase I, the South Carolina Department of Education chose to use the IDC Equity, Inclusion, and Opportunity: How to Address Success Gaps, Rubric to inform their work. SC state staff developed the SC SSIP Partners' Inventory by reformatting content in the Success Gaps rubric, breaking apart some of the more complex components of the rubric into more concise elements that could be rated more easily on a Likert-type rating scale.

    Equity, Inclusion, and Opportunity: Addressing Success Gaps, White Paper

    This white paper focuses on elements of equity, inclusion, and opportunity that can minimize or eliminate success gaps among different groups of students. It provides the research-based background that guided development of a complementary rubric that schools or districts can use to systematically examine the root causes of success gaps among groups of their students. The white paper has been updated recently and now includes considerations for children as young as preschool.

    Equity, Inclusion, & Opportunity: Addressing Success Gaps

    This presentation introduced the audience of local education agency personnel to new tools, the Equity, Inclusion, and Opportunity: How to Address Success Gaps Rubric and the Equity, Inclusion and Opportunity: How to Address Success Gaps White Paper. The rubric and white paper were developed by a group of OSEP-funded technical assistance providers, with input from states and other experts. The Equity, Inclusion, and Opportunity: How to Address Success Gaps tools provide a process for reducing the differences in school success among subgroups of students by providing a structure for districts or schools to examine their current practices and identify areas for improvement.

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

    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.
