Developing Online Modules: Aligning Individualized Education to Common Core

The California Department of Education's Special Education Division provides educators and families with the information and resources they need to ensure that students with disabilities receive proper support and achieve at their highest level in academic and non-academic endeavors. 

WestEd staff collaborated with the Special Education Division to develop a series of online modules that provide special and general educators with an overview of the Common Core standards, grade-level and subject-area content, and instructional strategies.

The modules also provide information on how to ensure student access to the academic content through individualized education programs aligned with the standards.
