UPDATED: New information is now available on the searchable database, Missouri Resources (MORE).  MORE contains current resources that relate to special education outcome indicators under IDEA.

The intent of this database is to make available current and relevant information about each special education results area.  This database contains information on the following topic areas: Academic Achievement, Dropout, Dispute Resolution, Early Intervention Services (EIS)/Response to Intervention (RtI), Graduation, Least Restrictive Environment (preschool age and school age), Parent Involvement, Preschool Outcomes, Post-secondary Transition, and Suspension and Expulsion.

Each topic offers eight information resources including academic literature, position statements, court rulings, definitions, evidence-based practices, exemplars, FAQs, and online resources.

MORE may be accessed on the DESE Effective Practices webpage at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/EffectivePractices/ or at http://www.northcentralrrc.org/sppinformationsupportsystem/index.aspx.

If you have questions or require additional information, please call Barb Gilpin at 573-751-7661.
