School Choice Vouchers And Special Education In Indiana Catholic Diocesan Schools, William H. Blackwell, June M. Robinson 2017 Sam Houston State University

School Choice Vouchers And Special Education In Indiana Catholic Diocesan Schools, William H. Blackwell, June M. Robinson

Journal of Catholic Education

Catholic schools are now located at a crossroads of school choice voucher programs and special education services. With enrollment in Catholic schools declining over the past several decades, voucher programs that allow parents to use public funds for tuition at private schools – including tuition for students with disabilities – could possibly help to steady or even reverse this decline. This study examined the impact of Indiana’s statewide voucher program on Catholic schools, student enrollment, and special education services in three large diocesan school systems. The findings address issues related to enrollment growth, changing student population characteristics, special education services, and ...

Providing Access For Students With Moderate Disabilities: An Evaluation Of A Professional Development Program At A Catholic Elementary School, Matthew P. Cunningham, Karen K. Huchting, Diane Fogarty, Victoria Graf

Journal of Catholic Education

After a significant policy change led to the admittance of students with moderate disabilities, St. Agnes School (SAS; pseudonym)—a Catholic PK-8 school in Southern California—implemented an 18-month professional development (PD) program to improve teachers’ inclusive classroom practices. Grounded in the theoretical framework of Universal Design for Learning (UDL; Center for Applied Special Technology, 2015b), the PD program included cyclical, one-on-one instructional coaching sessions that were led by trained UDL coaches and consisted of lesson demonstrations and personalized feedback. While SAS teachers held state credentials, most had very little training to work with students with special needs prior to ...


A Content Analysis Of Catholic School Written Discipline Policies, Daniel L. Philippe, Claudia M. Hernandez-Melis, Pamela Fenning, Katie N. B. Sears, Emily M. McDonough, Elizabeth Lawrence, Michael Boyle 2017 Loyola University Chicago

A Content Analysis Of Catholic School Written Discipline Policies, Daniel L. Philippe, Claudia M. Hernandez-Melis, Pamela Fenning, Katie N. B. Sears, Emily M. Mcdonough, Elizabeth Lawrence, Michael Boyle

Journal of Catholic Education

School discipline has traditionally endorsed the use of exclusionary practices (i.e. suspension and expulsion). Such practices can have a negative short- and long-term impact on student lives, and tend to be enforced disproportionately with certain student populations. Although public school discipline policies have received increased scrutiny in recent years, Catholic school policies have received very little attention. This study presents the results of a content analysis of the written discipline policies of 33 Catholic secondary schools from two dioceses within a major metropolitan area. Results suggest that although variability exists in the types of behaviors included in formal written ...

The Good, Bad & Ugly Of Accessibility In Higher Education Facilities, Brian Manternach, Kerry Anne Dixon

Disability Awareness Summit

Not every solution for addressing physical access on a campus is a success. Some are outstanding, and some… not so good. We need to be honest in our evaluation of existing, new, and renovated building on our campuses. This session will examine examples of physical accessibility at the Iowa and Iowa State campus. Participants will gain understanding of the underlying problems and potential solutions for change through best practice discussion and highlighting differing inclusive design strategies used by the two institutions.

Now You See Me Now You Don't: Navigating The World With An Invisible Disability, Mark Harris, Nathan Stucky 2017 University of Iowa

Now You See Me Now You Don't: Navigating The World With An Invisible Disability, Mark Harris, Nathan Stucky

Disability Awareness Summit

It is estimated that 96% of all disabilities are invisible. In this session, participants will learn basic facts regarding the prevalence of invisible disabilities, the struggles faced by people with invisible disabilities, and how invisible disabilities may differ from visible disabilities in the individual’s self-image and how others perceive them. We will focus on best practices for Student Disability Offices and Faculty and Staff Disability Offices in addressing the needs of people with invisible disabilities, with attention paid to how our work with these individuals is similar to and different from our work with individuals in general.

The Disproportionate Representation Of Minorities In Special Education, Rasuwl Medina 2017 Rowan University

The Disproportionate Representation Of Minorities In Special Education, Rasuwl Medina

Theses and Dissertations

Students throughout the United States are promised that individuals who enter the U.S. educational system are placed on an even playing field and that each student will be given equitable treatment within the school they attend. Furthermore, students are assured that studying and learning class material will determine not only their placement within school but the success they will have in life. Despite this long held belief, research and demographic breakdowns of special education placement within the U.S. suggests minorities are disproportionately placed into special education (de Valenzuela, Copeland, & Qi, 2006). This finding is in concert with the ...
