From Susan, Chariperson for RIDE Visit

Hi Jessica,

Tell folks we will be asking them about what the “do” in their jobs… how they plan for IEP meetings, reevaluations, how they use data to inform instruction, what they do for transition etc. Most folks after an interview say something like “that is it?”. We do not ask them to quote regulations or anything of that nature. They will talk about what they know and do.
