Prioritized Connectors for LEAP Connect

November 18, 2022 0 By Tammy Dupre

The LDOE published the “Prioritized Connectors Guide” in the August 23rd newsletter. 

The purpose of the document is to provide teachers with insight as to which of the LA Connectors will be priority  for the LEAP Connect statewide assessment.

Teachers can focus in on the LA Connectors listed within this document during daily lessons and prepare students for testing questions.   The document has numerous resources such as the “Companion Resources for the ELA Guidebooks for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities“. “The Companion Resources are designed for students with the most significant needs to facilitate access and success with a high-quality curriculum, improve professional learning partnerships between special education teachers and content-area specialists, and increase opportunities for students with significant cognitive impairments to participate in inclusive, least restrictive environments.”
