We are currently under construction and will be adding additional content soon! Thank you for your patience! Contact iDEC@ku.edu for any questions. 


The University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning and the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) joined forces to form the Inclusive Digital Era Collaborative (iDEC) Focusing on Students with Disabilities. The collaborative seeks to provide a variety of educational services to state departments of education and other stakeholders involved in online learning and special education. These services will provide education stakeholders with critical information in the form of technical and research reports, stakeholder engagement activities, evaluation of specific program components, monitoring of special education services in virtual schools, policy development, and professional development for virtual school teachers and administrators.
