The Modified Consent Decree (MCD) requires that the District conduct the District Validation Review (DVR) in all schools with special education programs. For the 2019-2020 school year, selected schools will be reviewed in each Local District.
Each school's DVR will be conducted by a DVR Team consisting of team members from outside the school, 2 school staff members, and one parent team member. Duties of the DVR Team will include: reviewing parent and staff surveys, reviewing documents and student records, conducting a parent interview meeting, interviewing staff, observing classrooms, and participating in a summary conference meeting.
The District Validation Review school team members are required to view the web-based training, "Special Education District Validation Review (DVR) Team Member Training and School Preparation Information 2019-2020," to assist in preparing them for their role on the day of the review.
If you have questions, please contact your Local District Special Education Service Center.
