WEBINAR: Light’s Retention Scale – A Tool for Supporting Retention Conversations
March 19, 2015
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Suggested Audience: Administrators, Special Education Coordinators
Light’s Retention Scale (LRS) is a tool that schools can use to support their conversations on retention. Based on 20 measures that schools consider for retention, the LRS is designed to include parents in the process and to allow those charged with the retention decision to evaluate many different data points to allow for a comprehensive decision on retention. This webinar will review the LRS, looking at each retention factor in detail, and allow for practice on two case studies. At the end of the webinar, school teams will be able to fully use the LRS as an additional tool within all of their retention meetings.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SESSION WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED AS AN IN-PERSON WORKSHOP AT THE NYC CHARTER SCHOOL CENTER. IT IS NOW BEING OFFERED AS A WEBINAR.
Presenter: Dixon Deutsch – Vice President, Special Education Collaborative & ELL Supports
