Strategies for Success: A Guidebook for Supporting Students with Disabilities
Louisiana Department of Education
All students deserve an education that prepares them for postsecondary success and a lifetime of unlimited opportunity, and Louisiana educators are leading the nation in raising the expectations for what all students can learn and achieve through designing and delivering standards-aligned instruction. Despite this overall progress, the performance of students with disabilities in Louisiana lags behind that of other students. Data show achievement gaps across all disability classifications, and these gaps have persisted over time. The purpose of this guidebook is to provide principals and school system leaders with resources to create strong support plans. It is organized around four proven strategies for improving the academic achievement of students with disabilities: (1) Identify disabilities early and accurately; (2) Provide high-quality instruction to ensure the achievement of ambitious IEP goals; (3) Strengthen instruction with specialized supports and related services; and (4) Coordinate effective transition planning and implementation.
