Description:

The Special Education Policy, Finance, and Systems (Policy/Systems) topic supports research that contributes to the improvement of education for students with disabilities or at risk for disabilities from kindergarten through Grade 12. Rather than focusing on improving student outcomes by changing curricula or student-level intervention approaches, researchers will conduct research on systems-level practices and policies (e.g., organizational strategies, financial and management practices) that are intended to improve the management, coordination, and implementation of systemic programs and services in ways that directly enhance the overall intervention or education environment, and indirectly improve student outcomes. The long-term outcome of this program will be an array of systems-level practices and policies that have been documented to be effective for improving the education or intervention environment and thereby improving outcomes for students with or at risk for disabilities from kindergarten through Grade 12.
