ABOUT THE WEBINAR: This presentation provides an overview of the federal laws that provide the framework for full and equitable inclusion of students with disabilities in school accountability systems such as those prescribed by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Key components of the legal framework for accountability are discussed as well as the cohesion between NCLB and IDEA. The legal implications of denying students with disabilities meaningful participation in state assessments and accountability systems are explored as well as issues likely to arise in the pending reauthorization of NCLB.
