It's now been 87 days since the July 22nd TIERS group's "Forgive and forget" meeting, so what's improved?
It's hard to gauge how well the district is doing on the revised C-CAP, because the district doesn't openly communicate its progress to families. To me SPS sees families as secondary in the process.
So, let look at some outside indicators.
In 2013 SPS had a total of 5 citizen complaints filed with OSPI for IDEA related violations.
As of October 2014 SPS has a total of 13 citizen complaints filed against them for IDEA related violations.
In 2013 SPS had a total of 7 due process hearings filed for IDEA related issues.
As of October 2014 SPS has 18 due process hearings filed for IDEA related issues.
As of October 2014 SPS has a total of 5 US department of education civil rights violations investigations pending against them.
It appears based on the above numbers that things are possibly worst, but in no meaningful measurable way have improved. I cant imagine SPS has a chance with only 259 days left.
