Improvement Strategies

Indicator 15 image


  • The CDE is developing a Due Process Q & A that includes a section on Resolution Meetings.  This Q & A will be posted on the CDE website and will be sent out to parties after the filing of a due process complaint. (2021-2022)
  • The CDE will develop a survey to be completed by parties who participated in resolution meetings within the last 3 years.  Data collected from this survey may assist in additional improvement plans. (2021-2022)
  • The CDE will contact CADRE to discuss possible alternate improvement strategies, including discussing improvement strategies implemented by other states. (2021-2022)
  • The CDE is revising our state’s Procedural Safeguards to provide a document that is more comprehensible and will assist in navigating the special education process, including resolution meetings. (2021-2022)
