Criterion & Topic: SE13 Progress Reports and Content
Rating: Partially Implemented
Department CPR Finding: A review of student records and staff interviews indicated that when a student’s eligibility terminates because the student has graduated from secondary school or exceeded the age of eligibility, the Collaborative does not provide the student with a summary of his or her academic achievement and functional performance, including recommendations on how to assist the student in meeting his or her postsecondary goals. Additionally, progress reports are always not completed for students in both the Bennett and LINK programs.
Narrative Description of Corrective Action: CAPS Collaborative Program Directors will conduct staff training in the fall of 2015 and annually thereafter on how to write progress reports to specifically address student progress based on goals, objectives and/or benchmarks in a given area. A checklist system to monitor distribution of Progress Reports on a quarterly basis to parents, school districts, and for filing in student records will be developed by collaborative staff and monitored for compliance by the Program Directors before November 2015.
Programs staff servicing students who will be graduating or are aging out will receive additional training in the fall of 2015 and annually thereafter regarding writing academic achievement/functional performance summaries provided by Program Directors. A sample achievement /functional performance template will be developed during the training session in the Fall of 2015. CAPS Program Directors will monitor the completion of achievement /functional performance plans as part of the graduation packet checklist sent home with students and forwarded to the student’s home district.
