Thursday March 02, 2023 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM - Webinar


Did you know students have a 75% chance of dropping out of school if they miss two or more days of school a month, or if their behavior is interfering with school success, or if they fail English Language Arts or math? This session provides an overview of the State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) to increase graduation rates for students with disabilities. In addition, the benefits of using an Early Warning System (EWS) and other effective strategies and resources will be presented to support students who are off-track for graduation.
