The Quality Indicators offer guidance to educators and administrators when developing, implementing and evaluating quality programs and services for students with the most significant needs. This guide identifies ten components to consider for effective programs: Inclusive Culture, Progress Monitoring, Instruction, Positive Behavior Support, Communication, Self Determination, Health and Safety, Transition, and Paraeducators. This guideline cannot be interpreted as policy or regulation, but as a tool designed to assist those who are educating students with significant support needs. Each quality indicator has a list of research/evidence based practices for providing a rich school experience with the goal of improving post school outcomes for all students.
