Data from the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) indicate that for 2017-2018, 14% of students in grades K-12 received special education services. This study will gather data from Connecticut certified health teachers from the 2018-2019 to better understand if and how students who receive special education services are included in health, the strategies used, and the training teachers have received to include them and to adapt curriculum.
