As part of the State Design Team efforts over the 2021-22 school year, OSPI Special Education seeks to listen and learn with partners across special education. We are honored that WestEd’s National Center for Systemic Improvement (NCSI) is co-designing a systemic equity review throughout this process. Our joint priorities are to center partner voice, racial equity, inclusionary practices, and impact for students across all special education activities.
The initial kick-off meeting for the State Design Team will explain the scope of work for the State Design Team and the equity review with NCSI. This webinar will be record and posted. We expect to hold one to two additional State Design Team meetings over the 2021-22 school year to provide updates on the State Design Team activities, including focus groups and the equity review. Ongoing updates on the work of the State Design Team will also be posted to our Family Engagement and Guidance page. Please contact OSPI Special Education at 360-735-6075 or WISM@k12.wa.us with questions.
