Investigation of State and Local Policies

NEEDs2 researchers conducted a systematic review of state-level websites to identify the extent to which state departments of education have provided specific guidance regarding the who, what, where, when, and why of SEB screening practices.

What we did:

1. We searched department of education websites for documents referencing SEB screening practices in K-12 settings
2. We conducted follow-up telephone interviews with state officials in order to confirm and add to the information obtained from the search.
3. For those districts participating in our RQ2/4 surveys, we reviewed those websites for info on SEB screening.
