CCSD Comprehensive Special Education Audit

In May 2021, the District partnered with Public Consulting Group (PCG) to embark on an external review of the Special Education Department, including its current program offerings, effectiveness of individualized services, continuum of services, monitoring and compliance, related professional development, consistency and articulation between schools, resources, and parent relations.

Public Consulting Group (PCG) first engaged in reviewing information from the offices of Special Education, Curriculum and Instruction, Business, Human Resources and from our Data Management Systems.

Then, five focus groups were held with parents, and parents also shared information via a survey and by email. In addition, educators in the District participated in IEP File Review teams, classroom observations, and survey responses. Interviews have also been conducted with administrators and District leaders.

PCG presented their findings to the Board of Education on January 26, 2022. The results of the review will be utilized by the District’s leadership team to develop a strategic plan for special education with a focus on how the CCSD can more effectively organize its structures, systems, and processes to better support the delivery of services to students with disabilities.
