This presentation will provide participants with a brief overview of the format of the LQIs. Case studies will be presented on the various ways school districts have incorporated the use of LQIs in determining priority need areas as well as prescribing and planning activities to change practices to improve outcomes for students with disabilities. Several "Walkthrough" formats that have been designed based on the LQIs will be shared.
