Directors present strategic plan update

By on January 29, 2011

Kaneland—The Kaneland School Board on Monday evening was presented with a strategic Response to Intervention (RTI) plan update by Directors of Eductional Services Sarah Mumm and Erika Schlichter, and Director of Special Education Fran Eggleston. The plan seeks to help evaluators identify children who may require special education services.

The new plan further outlines the criteria necessary to determine whether or not a child is eligible for special education, and also identifies several variables that can actually create the illusion of a learning disability (lack of appropriate instruction, limited English proficiency, etc.) during the evaluation of a student.
