What Matters Most
Considerations for increasing the performance of students with disabilities as part of district-wide improvement are provided in this section. The role of state education agencies, including regional technical assistance providers, the role of districts and their schools, and the role of parents/families are outlined in relationship to each of the six critical practices (e.g., focus your goals) highlighted in the district feature stories.
While increasing the performance of students with disabilities is emphasized in Moving Your Numbers, the practices described are as relevant to learners who are at or above proficiency as they are to students close to or far from being proficient on core content. Similarly, the role of adults at all levels of the system (e.g., state, region, district, school) in implementing critical practices are essential to improving the quality of education for all learners, closing the gap between and among student groups, and supporting higher levels of learning for each child.
