At this time, please let the service and support of children and families be your top priority.

We are waiting for official guidance from California Department of Education, Special Education Division regarding the spring DRDP (2015) assessment. If you already have DRDP (2015) records completed, please hold off on submitting them until we receive further guidance. Thank you for your patience and your dedication to young children and their families.

The launch of the online course, “Using DR Access Reports,” is postponed until Local Education Agencies resume typical operations. If you have the opportunity, you can create your account at DR Access Reports and become acquainted with the reports and resources available.
