Descriptor: All students have equitable access to highly effective curriculum and instruction.
Teachers have cross curricular meetings which incorporate grade level teachers with special areas, ESL, resource, and RTI teachers as well. These meeting allow us to collaborate regarding the content that is being covered in reading in math for the following two weeks.
Many student's with IEP's have objectives that are written to meet the student's needs, and most objectives correlate with the common core standards. When writing an IEP objective, the regular education teacher and special education teacher collaborate to find the foundational skills within the core standards that each student needs to master. Along with each child's evaluation results and objective mastery, the core standards are used as a basis for writing IEP objectives. Also, based upon the student's special needs, proper supports are put in place to attain the curriculum.

Third Grade consistently plans together and we all utilize common lesson plans. We also develop common assessments to be used in our classroom so that we may analyze our testing data to adequately plan specific instruction for our students as well as to ensure that all students have access to the curriculum and any support that they need to help them succeed.
