School Best Practices for Inclusive Education (SBPIE)
The School Best Practices for Inclusive Education (BPIE) Assessment is a school self-assessment process designed to identify priority needs, develop goals, plan improvement strategies, and organize resources to support the implementation of inclusive practices for students with disabilities. This assessment is completed every three years, per Florida Statute 1003.57 (1)(f). During the 2018-2019 school year, schools will be completing a new SBPIE.
The BPIE includes 34 indicators of inclusive practices, aligned with the District Level BPIE, that are categorized within the following three domains.
• Leadership and Decision Making
• Instruction and Student Achievement
• Communication and Collaboration
The School BPIE indicators are reviewed and rated by a school team selected by the school administrator. Based on the final team assessment ratings, priority goals are identified and improvement strategies are developed to improve and increase inclusive practices across the school.
