To wrap up 2016 and look ahead to 2017, share one online "gift" with colleagues in your #INeLearn Community of Practice. It could be a lesson, a resource, a blog post, or anything else you think might be helpful for a peer in your content area or grade level. You can share something you created or that you found and have used.

Improving Outcomes for Students with Disabilities- The Office of Special Education (OSE) is excited to share our commitment to making a difference for students with disabilities in Indiana by collaborating with schools, parents, other local, federal and state agencies, and all of the offices within the Indiana Department of Education. Our mission is to close the gap between students with and without disabilities, not only in terms of knowledge and skills, but also in expectations and opportunities. Below is a link to a new form of communication from the OSE called a “Short Share”. The first Short Share will introduce the concept of improving outcomes for students with disabilities. Improving outcomes can be achieved through a core curriculum based on grade level standards, high quality instruction that meets the diverse needs of all students, unbiased assessment that guides instruction and collaboration among administrators, general and special education staff, parents, and the community. Enjoy!
