Alignment of TN Special Education Framework with Content Standards

The U.S. Department of Education (USED) issued guidance (here) in an effort to ensure that children with disabilities are held to high expectations and have meaningful access to a state’s academic content standards. The new guidance states that an individualized education program (IEP) for an eligible child with a disability under IDEA must be aligned with the state’s academic content standards for the grade in which the student is enrolled.

In order to provide clarity on how Tennessee’s Special Education Framework aligns with content standards, per the guidance from USED, please see this document (here).
