Goal #3 Continue to meet with key stakeholders to ensure quality and rigor of Special Education Program as we enter the first year of candidates matriculating in the licensure.

Progress Toward Goals - 2017
Goal #1 We completed needs assessment program approval paperwork for baccalaureate and post baccalaureate licensure programs- Teacher: Moderate Special Needs (PK8). We received notification from the MA dese of approval in February.
Goal #2 Stonehill has opened a dedicated website for resources focused on CAP for SPs and PS. We have also worked with a technical support to make this more user friendly. Stonehill invited all SPs to campus on 3 occasions over the semester to team with their candidate to discuss specific pints in the CAP cycle.

Progress Toward Goals - 2016
Goal #1 The new SMKs have not been released but we have looked at draft SMKs and projected changes in program
Goal #2 At monthly department meetings we revised documentation as well as the timing for asking PSs to respond. We are looking to solicit information that will speak more to the TC skill level at the beginning of practicum.
Goal #3 Partner advisory meeting organized to include administrators and teachers in partner districts. Reorganization of who is included in surveys to ensure us capturing feedback from all possible areas.
