Administrators and educators from the Allegheny Intermediate Unit’s Blind and Visually Impaired Support Program have used the Quality Programs for Students with Visual Impairments (QPVI) to conduct an extensive self-study. Through systematic data collection and analysis, this process has led to strategic decision-making, increased accountability, and consistency in practice. Participants of this session will learn key elements of this prototype and how to apply it to any educational program focused on improving student outcomes. Use of this collaborative model and the resulting findings can serve as a mechanism to provide meaningful and specific professional development that leads to improved programming.
