The focus of the study is examining trends in achievement among students with disabilities in both schools that are and are not accountable for the performance of those students. In addition, the study focuses on describing improvement efforts in schools that have failed to make adequate yearly progress for students with disabilities in particular grades and subjects. The evaluation will use EdFacts data as well as data from surveys of school principals and special education designees about their school improvement practices. The study will use descriptive statistics and regression analysis to study how student outcomes and school practices vary with the identification of elementary and middle schools for improvement.
