News and Updates
The California Department of Education, Special Education Division has issued the following requirements for the DRDP assessment of children with IFSPs and IEPs:
- Children will continue to be assessed with the Interim DRDP for Special Ed through the spring of 2022
- To be included in the spring assessment, children must have a signed IFSP in a local education agency (LEA) or a signed preschool IEP; and they must begin special education services before April 1, 2022
Download the "Supplemental Guidance for Special Education on Using the DRDP during the COVID-19 Pandemic" for a summary of the requirements, key considerations, and recommended practices.
Remember that you can produce individual child reports for the DRDP assessments you completed this fall. The Child Report, Child Progress Report, and Peer Reference reports provide information that you can use to plan instruction; inform goals, outcomes, and learning targets; and share with families.
Join us for two webinar series this year: Coffee Break Webinars, a quick look at resources and strategies for using the DRDP; and Learn It & Use It, more in-depth sessions about the use of the DRDP results.
