Illinois Alliance for School-based Problem-solving and Intervention Resources in Education
The Illinois Alliance for School-based Problem-solving and Intervention Resources in Education (I-ASPIRE) project is a statewide effort under the coordination of the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).
I-ASPIRE attempts to "establish and implement a coordinated, regionalized system of personnel development that will increase the capacity of school systems to provide early intervening services, aligned with the general education curriculum, to at-risk students and students with disabilities, as measured by improved student progress and performance". I-ASPIRE is funded by a five-year (2005-2010) State Personnel Development Grant under part D of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA, 2004).
In concert with the efforts of the regional I-ASPIRE Centers, this project is designed to help build a long-lasting infrastructure for professional development by requiring partnerships at many levels and by focusing on common professional development content across the state.
