Improving Learning for Children with Disabilities (ILCD) Projects

ILCD Projects are a Nebraska Department of Education initiative intending to enhance program improvement that will result in better outcomes for children with disabilities. School districts will continue to use data to inform the  ILCD (Improving Learning for Children with Disabilities) process to review their special education programs.  They develop Targeted Improvement Plans (TIP)  in Nebraska's system for meeting the tenets of the federal initiative of Results Driven Accountabilty (RDA).

Resources and information can be viewed on April's MTSS site.

ESU 6 ILCD Facilitators assist school districts with their improvement activities for students with disabilities. Facilitators partner with districts to gather and analyze data in collaboration with the Continuous School Improvement Process and to assist in the development of TIP. Each Nebraska school district develops a TIP focused on better child and student performance, reporting annually to NDE on the Plan's progress.  Efforts are supported through the Performance Enhancement and Knowledge (PEaK) Project, funded through NDE (formerly known as D-TIPS).

The emphasis is on Results Driven Accountability that targets three Impact Areas:

  • Improving developmental outcomes and academic achievement for children with disabilities
  • Improving communication and relationships among families, schools, communities, and agencies
  • Improving transitions for children with disabilities
