The Clinton Project Improving Outcomes
Looking at Birth to Grade 12 Special Education from Both Ends of the Funnel
By Georgie Koenig, Sector Coordinator, Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency
In special education we come to know the children through their
individual education plans (IEP). We can often sing praises of our
students’ progress, but the numbers often conflict with our personal
views of student progress. For the staff in Mississippi Bend Area
Education Agency’s (AEA) Sector I, the numbers were not adding up:
over identification of students receiving special education services, a
large achievement gap between students receiving special education
services and students with no special education support, and ITBS/
ITEDS achievement testing not showing much progress for students
receiving special education services. In addition to these issues, the
Clinton School District brought to our attention that once students
were identified in preschool, they continued to receive special education
services their entire school career. This was the beginning of the trail for
investigating the issue of over identification of children in the Clinton
School system. We began to ask ourselves hard questions that we
couldn’t really answer. We knew we had to do something differently.
We sought outside help to wade through the tangle of very complicated
issues in the fall of 2008. A professor from Western Illinois University
assisted our group through a series of structured activities designed to
sort and sift, which led to some sense of clarity. We did these activities
with our internal staff and again with the Clinton School District’s
preschool teachers. Both groups arrived at the same conclusions. It
wasn’t anything that we didn’t know; the issues of poverty, lack of
resources, and students not arriving to preschool with the skills they
needed. The exercises did provide us with a product on how to make
sense of the information. Our final document gave us a place to start
and provided us with specific issues to tackle.
We knew we had to look at the entire system birth through grade
twelve, because each one impacted the next, each exacerbating the
identified problems over time. Tackling the system all at once was not
feasible, so we started at the source - our early childhood evaluation
process.
Through this work, it soon became evident we needed to look at the
system to gain insight into what was happening for both the individual
child and children as a whole who were receiving special education
Sept./Oct. 2012
services. We needed to look at our students individually through the
small end of the funnel, as well as what was happening system wide;
from the large end of the funnel. Looking at students from both ends
of the funnel helped our group improve the system and improve the
outcomes for individual students. Next is a brief description of our
journey over the last three years.
We ended up developing a series of data collection tools that enabled
us to view the large end of the funnel, what was happening for special
education students as a whole in the Clinton School System, while still
attending to each and every child’s needs through progress monitoring.
Our group did learn when viewing from the large end (the systems
view) the data did not always tell the entire story. We soon discovered
we needed the story behind the data to make sense of the information
and respond appropriately.
We responded to the data with targeted interventions to address
specific issues in three different age groups. Our three groups were
birth to age three, preschoolers age three through five, and school age
students grades kindergarten through grade twelve.Year one primarily
focused on birth to three and with preliminary planning for the
other two areas.Year two brought on full force school age and minor
changes in our preschool population.Year three, all three groups have
implemented major changes and we are seeing results from our efforts.
We put a lot of energy into our birth to three group knowing that if
we could intervene early with targeted and powerful interventions, our
end results would be different. Our Early Childhood Special Education
Teachers targeted students with a 25% skill or more domain area delay.
For example, a common delay for children is speech production. They
collected data on this population to determine if the interventions they
put in place were making a difference. The interventions they put into
place to improve outcomes for these students were:
• Increasing the frequency of visits from once a month to two times or
more per month.
• Getting literature in the hands of students (Board Books and the Dolly
Parton Imagination Library).

with the district on supporting their progress monitoring expectations,
meeting with teachers monthly to review students’ progress on goals,
and meeting with administrators to review the data collected. The
keys for this work were basing decisions on progress data collected at
least twice a month and the professional dialogue around improving
teaching and learning. All stakeholders worked together to look at
the data and determine how to respond educationally for the most
powerful outcomes. At some schools even the students became part of
the process in reviewing their data and working with their teachers to
improve their outcomes on their individual goals. Students were excited
to see the impact of their hard work when viewing their progress
monitoring graphs.

• Working with community groups on book drives and obtaining funds
to purchase books.
• L eaving Treasure Boxes, created by the Early Childhood Special
Education Teachers, so parents had the materials to follow through on
the interventions the teachers modeled for them during visits.

• E stablishing scholarships for a one-year pass to the Discovery Center

a possible resource for the parents of our students.
•G
iving parents monthly issues of parenting magazines and highlighting
articles pertinent to their current child care needs.
In three years we achieved the following results:
• Reduced the number of students moving from birth to three services
onto IEPs from 41 students to 34 students.
• Reduced the number of preschoolers needing special education
support from 70 students to 44 students.
• Made decisions using progress monitoring data by moving the graphing
of goals from 58% to 92% of graphs being up-to-date.
• Improved the use of phase changes from 59% to 98% correct usage
through professional dialogues around interventions for students
based on the progress data.
• Increased the number of students on trajectory to meet
their goals from 66% to 71.5%.
• Dismissed 25 students with instructional IEPs for meeting goals and no
longer needing special education support.
• Reduced the number of students identified in Clinton County from
849 students in 2009 to 729 students in 2012.
At the preschool level, the Early Childhood Education Evaluation Team
worked on several fronts. The group addressed evaluation criteria,
general education interventions, and progress monitoring. Strategies put
in place by this group were:
• L ooking at evaluation criteria to include addressing exclusionary
factors and assessment tools being used.
•C
onducting evaluations in the home or in the preschool verses in the
Early Childhood Evaluation Center.
• Implementing a response to intervention system at the preschool level.
•D
esigning and supporting parents of preschoolers (not in a preschool
setting) by implementing interventions verses immediately moving into
an evaluation.
•C
onducting a pilot of progress monitoring support for preschool
teachers (This included professional conversations around matching
interventions to student need based on the data).
What we learned through our three year journey is that administrative
support is vital to the success of the project, as well as, teachers willing
to actively participate in the process with our AEA staff members.
Working with parents as intervention partners is imperative to the
process of improving outcomes for young children. Partnerships with
community members are critical to providing necessary resources to
students and families.
For the school age students, kindergarten through grade twelve, we
built upon the work that some of our staff had put into place at the
elementary schools in Clinton year one to design a systems approach.
Our goals were to improve outcomes for students by closing the
achievement gap and increasing the number of students who could be
successful in the general education setting without special education
support. We accomplished this through establishing an AEA Clinton
Leadership Team to facilitate and coordinate the work, AEA data teams
in each building using the Doug Reeves Data Team model, partnering
When we arrive at a better future and look back at our initial efforts to
change the system, I think we will smile at the simplistic design of our
preliminary work. I do think, however, we will be proud of the fact we
had the courage to start, warts and all.
Assistive Technology
Information may have been sent by the previous school team through
Assistive Technology Transfer Forms available at http://www.aea9.k12.
ia.us/en/programs_and_services/integrated_services/special_education/
assistive_technology/transfer_forms/. If these forms have not been
completed and if the information in the IEP is not clear, the IEP team
may need to request additional information from the sending team.
The beginning of the year is an important time to review each student’s
IEP for information related to Assistive Technology (AT). If AT is included
as a part of the IEP, it is important to note each of the following:
• Purpose of the AT
• Frequency of use
• Environments in which the AT will be used (e.g. school classrooms,
home, bus, extracurricular activities, etc.)
• Specific types of activities in which the AT is used (e.g. reading
textbooks, teacher notes, etc.)
• General and specific AT listed (light and high tech)
• Student learning required for use
• Staff training required for use
• Backup options for the student if the AT requires repair or
replacement
2
If AT is required for the student to receive information, engage in
or demonstrate learning of curricular material, it is important for
the AT to be provided at the same time other students complete
these educational activities. Unfortunately, AT devices are sometimes
misplaced during times of transition. Because it is important to provide
the AT, as described in the IEP, in a timely manner, it will be critical to
locate the AT devices as soon as possible or provide an immediate
replacement. Review of the IEP and preparation for use from the first
day of school will help to ensure that students with disabilities who
require AT will have it available and ready to use from the first day of
school.

(Bring Your Own Device)
Pro’s and Con’s: A MUST read for schools going 1 to 1
By Cindy Blinkinsop, Head of Materials & Media Distribution, Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency
A new trend among school districts considering going 1 to 1 is to have
students bring their own devices which may save the school district
money up front but will bring several headaches in the process. When I
first read about this trend, I thought it was the way to go – the perfect
answer for districts wanting to go 1 to 1 but not having the money to
make it happen. This summer I attended a technology conference in
which one of the speakers, a district technology director, detailed his
experience with BYOD and why his school district only participated for
one year and would never do it again.
stopped working. Is that teacher now responsible for buying the
student a new device because the ‘teacher broke it?’
• The devices are of varied sizes, have varied speed capabilities, varied
ages of operating
systems, and many of
the operating systems
do not work with the
district network.
• Since BYOD devices
are wireless, they will
severely tax all but the
most robust wireless
infrastructure.
• Some students used Mac products, some used Microsoft, some used
shareware/freeware which caused all kinds of problems for teachers
and IT support because the district supported Microsoft and teachers
could not open the documents students were ‘handing in.’
• Issues with battery life and infrastructure for allowing all the devices
to plug in and charge at the same time.
• Textbook issues: iPads do not support all formats for online
textbooks. The biggest issue with the online textbooks is this: when
the district purchased the online textbook, the students are only
allowed to access (copyright laws apply here) the textbook with a
district purchased device.You are not allowed to put textbooks on a
student owned device. This district had spent a lot of money of online
textbooks and did not read the fine print until it was too late.
• Information Consumption issues: not all devices work with all types
of media. Devices need Flash, pdf reader, Java, and so on and not all
devices allow these plug-ins to run. For example, the teacher gives a
reading assignment online, but half of the students cannot read the
article on their devices because they cannot run the plug-in required
to read the document.
• Presentation of Information: the IT department and teachers
could not possibly know every app available on every device.
Because students had so many different devices, the teachers and IT
department had to try to learn a lot of new apps which they truly
could not keep up with leaving them very frustrated.
• Difficult to enforce a standard because of all the different devices and
different ages of the devices – some students had XP, some had 2003,
some had 2007, and some had freeware. They found a way for students
to save and hand in assignments as pdf’s, but then teachers couldn’t
grade them as they could in a Word document. This blew their goal of
doing everything online and never having to print again.
• IT Department concerns:
o With so many different devices, there were a lot of people getting
on their network. Not all of the devices had an antivirus software
downloaded on them so students were sharing many viruses which
caused IT several headaches.
o A tech-savvy student with a Linux devise and root/administrator
access could wreak havoc with a school’s network systems.
Additional attention needs to be paid to security.
The experiences he shared were invaluable to those districts trying to
decide how to roll-out a 1 to 1 initiative. As I sat there listening to the
pro’s and con’s, I realized there were issues no one would have thought
of until they were hip-deep into the roll-out. I appreciated him sharing
his year-long experience with the rest of us techies and want to share
that with educators and administrators in AEA9.
PRO’s:
• Students can bring any device they have from home that allows
them to connect to the internet and email. This includes iPads, iPods,
iPhones, laptops, eReaders, netbooks or mini’s, cell phones, and so on.
The device must work with your wireless network.
• The school does not have to
purchase a device for
every student
which saves the
district thousands
of dollars.
• Information creation: students are free to
use whatever their device supports to gather information and create
documents, videos, etc.
• They could craft school policies around using network resources,
network tools and appropriate behavior -- not the device. Wording is
very sticky so consult your district’s attorney.
• A centrally managed wireless system can provide additional security
and tracking to help enforce any policies that are in place.
• A centralized wireless system can do bandwidth
controls over other quality of service issues in order
to keep the use of the network consistent over all
devices.
CON’s:
• The first and biggest drawback to BYOD is Equity.
The digital divide is very apparent when you
have students bring their own devices. Some
kids had the latest and greatest while others had
nothing to bring or only had a 10 year old laptop
with Windows98.
• Students know their devices, but the IT staff and teachers could
not help because they cannot possibly know every device and how
it works. They were unable to help students when they needed
assistance with their specific device. One issue that did happen was
that a teacher was trying to help a student with his BYOD and it
continued on page 7

Features
continued from page 6
o Tablets have 3G capabilities which
allowed tech savvy students to set up
their own ‘network’ and allow their
friends on which means the district
filtering software no longer applied and
students were able to get to web sites
otherwise blocked by the district. The
IT department was not able to monitor
these devices.
o You cannot possibly know all devices,
all apps, what the fixes are for all of the
devices, what they are or are not capable
of, and do they all run the same software
so there is a standard set.
o You cannot enforce a filtering policy with
those using 3G devices. Students running
their own ‘network’ on their 3G are
protected by privacy laws so you are not
allowed to see what they are doing.
o You try to help a student with their
device and it crashes. Is the district or
teacher now responsible for replacing
that device?
After a year of trying BYOD, the school district
met with the parents, teachers, administrators
and IT personnel and below is what they are
doing for the 2012-2013 school year:
• The district will be purchasing Lenovo devices
because they are heavy duty and have a
replacement and repair warranty.
• Their 1 to 1 efforts will be to buy all 6-12
grade students a Lenovo device with warranty
agreement.
• Students will be allowed to bring their own
device and those will run on the SSID channel
for non-school devices and the schools
devices will run on the school network so
they can throttle the bandwidth more or less
for that network.
• Teachers need only know how to operate the
schools devices, network folders, resources,
etc.
There is a lot to consider when going 1 to 1
in your school district. This article was written
to help you weigh the pros and cons when
considering your options on whether or not to
have the district purchase the device or to let
students BYOD.
A
BOOK by ME
Books Written by Children
for Children
Deb Bowen of Aledo, Illinois is looking
for young authors to tell the true stories
of World War II. In 2003 her daughter,
then in middle school, asked to go to Yom
Hashoah (a Holocaust Remembrance at the
synagogue) to hear a survivor speak. Her
daughter wanted to get extra credit for
Social Studies. It was there Deb discovered
the survivors in our midst – specifically three
Esthers. Esther Avruch, Esther Katz and
Esther Schiff inspired her to begin the book
project now called A BOOK by ME (ABBM).
In the ABBM process, students interview/
research, write and illustrate about their
subject; telling a real life experience during
the war. Their effort produces books written
by children for children.
After the pilot project, more students got
involved telling Jewish survivor stories, WWII
Veteran stories and Righteous Gentile stories
for ABBM Holocaust Series. Today hundreds
of students have participated with over 70
different titles in Holocaust series; either
work in process or books completed. Many
stories in this book series would have been
lost as the subjects have no other books
published.
No publisher would work with the stories
so in 2010 Bowen and her husband
incorporated as Never Forget Publishing, Inc.
Six books actually published (four Holocaust
and two Human Rights stories). Looking for
doors to open to put them in schools and in
the marketplace for educational purposes.
Deb’s work with high school exchange
students has resulted in International young
authors/illustrators from Austria, Germany,
Poland, Brazil, Romania, Italy, Azerbaijan,
Morocco and more. Exchange Students from
predominantly Muslim countries have written
about Muslim Righteous Gentiles.
One story from Davenport was discovered,
assigned, written and illustrated in a matter
of six weeks. It’s the story of a young man in
Norway who worked for the underground
when the Nazis invaded his country. He used
his skies to take Jews to safety in Sweden
and returned with a pack on his back with
dynamite to blow up the Nazi rail system.
Today, he lives in Iowa and is proud to be a
Righteous Gentile (one who risked his life to

ABBM is launching Operation Write Now
this year hoping thousands of students across
the nation and around world will take the
initiative to find their local stories. Please
consider visiting your local nursing home or
VFW, put a story in the newspaper that you
are looking for a story to tell for this project.
Many American soldiers were eyewitnesses
to concentration camps. They have a story
to tell and many are willing. We have a short
window of opportunity to find the stories
and get them written. We must meet and
hear the voices of the WWII generation and
write their stories for the next generation.
We must do it right now!
