Core Messages

A focus of past (1999 - 2013) federally funded State Personnel Development Grants (SPDG), awarded to the California Department of Education was to communicate common messages to the field about selected topics. These common, or core messages, articulate critical research findings and essential components of effective application. All core messages have been identified by experts in the field and have been approved by the California Department of Education, Special Education Division.

CalSTAT, continues to utilize these core messages, by supporting trainings and technical assistance requests that reflect any or all of the core message areas. Select one of the core message areas below to view a complete listing of the messages and supporting research.
