What is ISRD?

The Institute for Small and Rural Districts (ISRD) project provides training and technical assistance designed to support positive outcomes for students with disabilities and their families across a network of forty nine (49) small and rural Florida school districts. The project assists district level administrators and school-based administrators as they implement the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004) regulations and the Florida State Performance Plan (SPP).

Working in collaboration with the Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services (BEESS), Florida Department of Education, the goal of the ISRD project is that overall services to students with disabilities and those at risk will be enhanced and that increased student performance will be the end result of project activities.
