Eligibility Determination for a Specific Learning Disability  
Welcome to the Oakland Schools site for Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD). Here you will find the document, Oakland Schools Guidance: Eligibility Determination for a Specific Learning Disability (referred to as the OS SLD Guidance), accompanying documents such as Frequently Asked Questions and many templates and resources.
 
Purpose
The Oakland Schools Guidance: Eligibility Determination for a Specific Learning Disability document and the accompanying resources were created to both assist districts in complying with all state rules and federal regulations regarding SLD, and to encourage districts to make a long-term plan for reshaping identification practices.
 
It is not intended to mandate an approach, nor is it intended to establish a single methodology for SLD identification across the county.
 
Audience
This document was intended for special education directors and supervisors, and the MET representatives who have a role in developing district procedures for the identification of SLD.
 
Our Role
Decisions about practice implications cannot and should not be made at the ISD level. Oakland Schools is committed to assisting districts in the development of sound, defensible procedures and practices that fit their unique service delivery context. Furthermore, it is the goal of Oakland Schools to help districts establish eligibility procedures that are based on a careful review of the options, aligned with the district’s vision, and established with an eye toward the future.
 
A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document was developed as a companion to the original guidance document. This supplemental tool provides detailed responses to specific questions raised by stakeholder groups as well as questions introduced by individuals during the review process. The FAQ will be routinely updated based on changes from case law.
