What does proficiency mean?

You may hear frequent mention of whether a student is proficient in reading or math.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) also referred to as 'The Nation's Report Card' is given every two years to a nationally representative sample of students in fourth and eighth grades.
https://www.nationsreportcard.gov/

NAEP provides an important comparison across states and between student groups (e.g., Black students, Hispanic students, students with disabilities, English learners).

Analysis from The Advocacy Institute shows the national results for students with disabilities (IEPs only) compared to students without disabilities (public schools) for the most recent 3 NAEP administrations (2019, 2017, 2015):

In 2019 performance in math at grades 4 and 8 was unchanged while performance in reading at grades 4 and 8 worsened.

#SpecialEducationAdvocacy #IDEA
I have a 17 yr old who was diagnosed with DYslexia in 5th grade. Our public school has never really helped her and seemed more intent on pushing her into special ed than in getting her the OG training she needed. We also discovered last summer that she has Irlens disorder. She has her filtered glasses and the words no longer 'slide" off the page. However, after many years of fighting the school, dealing with a bully( in each case it was always my daughter who was moved), she ended up in a life skill class. At first, it was ok because the teacher was able to work with her on her reading while the other students were out in the community washing dishes( job training). But then that teacher changed districts. Covid hit along with virtual learning. Contrary to many people, my daughter actually thrived. I was available at all times to meet her IEP needs. She became interested in school again and some of that was because she no longer had to deal with the bully ( same one for 4 years). we enrolled her this year in PA Cyber charter school. She is still in the life skill program this year but the agreement is that next year she will be placed in regular classes, with her math class possibly being a grade 3-6 level depending on the testing that was done. I know her math skills are low and consider them to be vital.
Since she has a strong desire to pursue a career as a 'storm Chaser' , she will need to attend college. She has agreed to take advantage of the laws allowing her to remain in school till age 21 in order to catch up from the issues in the public school. However, I feel we are at the point where we need to pursue a 504 plan for her.
what I do not know is if I should simply request a 504 plan be formulated or do I put in the letter what I want IN the 504? If I need to spell out what is needed in it , I need to understand more about what it is and what needs to go into it to make it most effective . Can you offer any advice?

We're pleased to join our partners at Nonprofit New York, Human Services Council of New York - HSC, The Advocacy Institute and more to sign on to the 2021 New York City Nonprofit Policy Platform 2021 NYC NONPROFIT POLICY PLATFORM

Over the past several months, over 40 New York City-based nonprofit coalition groups have collaborated on creating and disseminating the 2021 Nonprofit Policy Agenda. Convened by The Advocacy Institute, Human Services Council, and Nonprofit New York, this working group includes representatives from all sub-sectors of nonprofits and has focused on lifting up values and operating principles that are important to all of us. This work aims to build solidarity across the nonprofit sector, expand our sphere of influence and demonstrate the power of a unified sector. We are stronger together.

The 2021 Nonprofit Policy Platform will be used to educate candidates, nonprofit staff members, and the communities we serve about the importance of the nonprofit sector and the key roles that nonprofits need to play in developing and implementing recovery strategies for NYC. We believe this work lays the groundwork needed to hold elected officials and policymakers at the local level accountable to the nonprofit sector.

We are currently collecting sign-ons to the platform and want to demonstrate strength in numbers as we share our sector's unified priorities. Please read the platform and sign on by clicking here.

You are welcome to use the language, priorities, and framing of this document in your own 501(c)(3) permissible advocacy work.

New report from the National Council on Disability: "The Impact of COVID-19 on People with Disabilities" recommends:

-Congress should enact measures that include funds dedicated to compensatory education for students with disabilities who could not receive necessary services and supports during the pandemic and who have experienced disruption and regression in their behavioral and educational goals.

-The U.S. Department of Education (ED) should direct school districts to provide compensatory education to students with disabilities to allow them to recover and regain skills. The right to and need for compensatory education should be presumed for children with disabilities who did not receive necessary instruction and supports during the COVID-19 pandemic.

-ED and DOJ should issue a joint guidance document outlining the elements of accessible remote education for students with disabilities.
