School or District Teams
- Directors of Special Education/Pupil Services and their named Designees
- Districts may wish to set-up school or district teams to review Indicator 14 outcomes data, complete the Predictor Rubric, or complete the Transition Requirements and Enhanced Practices Rubric.
- Teams are determined by the district Director of Special Education/Pupil Services (DSE). Teams are established so the Rubrics can be completed as a team and the Resources saved to "My Toolbox Resources" can be added to by team members.
- The DSE can establish district teams by "inviting" a Designee or individual educators to join the school or district team. Teams can be established at the district level, school level, building level, or another type of team by "inviting" members of that team to join, e.g. all of the Middle School special education teachers; all of the teachers who work with youth with Cognitive Disabilities; a Charter School team. There is no limit on the number or type of teams a district can develop.
- Once a team has been named, individual team members who are educators (mainly teachers or transition coordinators) can develop their own teams by inviting members. Members can include outside agency personnel, parents, and other educators. All team members can view all team created tools and resources.
