Meeting outcomes achieved included identification and charting of office-specific issues and concerns, proposed revisions to current timelines, and a summary of edits, as needed, for each process standard. The next meeting is scheduled for February 12. Also, SECC and MDE special education staff participated in a January 13 call to discuss information from the January 11 MDE/National Center for Systemic Improvement (NCSI) conference call. MDE reviewed the key discussion points of the conference call, and the team brainstormed possible follow-up activities. When indicated, MDE will contact SECC regarding these activities.
