CDE Quality Indicator Tool for Serious Emotional Disabilities Programming
The CDE Serious Emotional Disability Quality Indicators (QI) offer guidance to educators and administrators when developing, implementing, and evaluating quality programming and services for students with a Serious Emotional Disability (SED). The Quality Indicators cannot be interpreted as policy or regulation but as a tool designed to assist those who educate and provide services to students with an SED or those evaluating these programs.
The Quality Indicators are built to provide baseline data which can be used to action plan and, in turn, monitor improvement of programming. Once the scores are entered for the Quality Indicators, a team can use the evaluation data and graph with the action plan rubric to guide their decision making.
