Purpose: This project will help educators use data to make decisions and support implementation of evidence-based practices to improve academic outcomes for students with disabilities in pre-K through grade six. The overall goal is to enhance technical assistance and increase parent involvement across Maryland.

 Method: Activities of this project include: (a) increasing the use of data-informed decision making and implementation science through State, district, and school leaders; (b) increasing the use of evidence-based practices in early and elementary math instruction; (c) increasing parent involvement in educational decision making and instruction; and (d) partnering with the Mid-south Regional Resource Center, Johns Hopkins University's Center for Technology, regional parent organizations, and three diverse school districts with significant needs to carry out this work.
