Post date: Mar 25, 2014 8:11:21 PM

Eleven Waukegan CUSD 60 schools monitored behavioral outcomes for students with IEPs during the 2012-13 school year. Four of these schools, two middle and two elementary, had three years of data available for review in the study described above. Students with IEPs in the two elementary schools had a 65% decrease in ODRs from 2011-12 to 2012-13, and were underrepresented in OSS data, indicating that they did not receive a disproportionate number of OSS compared to students without an IEP. In the two middle schools, students with IEPs experienced a 75% decrease in OSS from 2011-12 to 2012-13, and also had a decrease in ODRs for the same time frame.
