This report describes in-depth practices at six schools that are making targeted efforts to improve math education for students with disabilities and other struggling learners. It examines each school’s practices for improving the math learning of all students as well as specific supports for students with disabilities and other struggling learners and identi- fies the challenges that schools face to serve students with diverse needs.
The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 requires states to ensure that all students make adequate yearly progress in achieving profi- ciency in English language arts and math. This study examines how six diverse schools have responded to the challenge of educating their students in math, particularly students with disabilities and other struggling learners. The report intends to help educators by provid-
ing examples and ideas to consider for their own school or district efforts to improve math teaching and learning.
