As a member of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities, AUCD signed onto a statement issued by the CCD Education Taskforce that offers a set of recommendations with regard to indicators of school quality and student success. The recommendations' release comes as states begin preparing new accountability systems for the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The CCD Education Taskforce urges policymakers to engage with and consult stakeholders from the disability community, expand and strengthen accountability and data collection system and reject proposals that rely on whether a student has met IEP goals as an indicator of school quality and student success.
