Grade level, standards-aligned academic IEP goals based on the California Content Standards for all students are critical to ensuring students with disabilities have access to high quality curriculum and instruction based on both grade level expectations and individualized needs. Additionally, composing non-academic goals can pose a challenge for teachers and IEP teams. This training will provide educators with information focused on the requisite skills to develop goals designed to support progress toward mastering grade-level content standards, as well as determining the students’ levels of performance and steps for writing meaningful and measurable non-academic goals. Presenters will lead participants through the goal development process and provide practical tools to aid them in future practice.

Any of our Regional Trainings can be given at your school site. These Site-Based Trainings are best suited for larger groups, and locations where a version of this training is not already scheduled.
Site-Based Trainings generally require a minimum of 10 participants at your school site. Should you wish to have a Site-Based Training, but do not have enough participants, the SELPA may be able to pair your LEA’s needs with other local SELPA Partners in order to offer the training at your site.
