When a viewer was watching the broadcast she made this comment,
“So much push back from school teams to get this much detail in a goal. I’ve tried! They say they need them to be broad so they can be targeting ‘across all settings’ or with a variety of supports/people.”
“A specific, measurable annual goal is how students are going to be evaluated on their progress to meet the goal.
A specific, measurable goal doesn’t prevent any staff person from working with the student in another setting or with a variety of supports or people.
Broad goals lead to staff and parents interpreting the goals in different ways and that often means the progress on goals is not measured in consistent ways.
You could also have a conversation with the special education director and ask what can be done so the staff understands the purpose of measurable goals and what can be done so staff will begin writing specific, measurable annual IEP goals.”
