All decisions related to the special education programming for the student will be driven by data. This means that before school teams can make a decision about Compensatory Education/Recovery Services, schools will review data on the student. School teams will examine three types of data:
- Pre-virtual instruction data that reflects how the student was performing when they were in a school building one year ago.
- Virtual instruction data that reflects the student’s progress, engagement, attendance and the provision of services, accommodations, supports, etc. during virtual instruction and small groups.
- Return to school data that will be collected upon the student’s return to buildings to obtain a new baseline, measure regression and monitor recoupment of skills and knowledge.
