Best Practices for Inclusive Education (BPIE) The BPIE is an internal assessment instrument to facilitate the analysis, implementation, and improvement of inclusive educational practices at the district, school, and education team levels. The BPIE assessment is conducted with a team of relevant stakeholders and is facilitated by a trained FIN facilitator. The assessment team meets during multiple (3-4) sessions to complete the assessment process and develop an action plan based on scoring results and priority needs. The action plan is used for short- and long-range planning and implementation of improvement efforts and involves ongoing collaboration between district and school personnel and the Florida Inclusion Network.
The BPIE was developed in collaboration with nationally known experts in the field of inclusive education and is based upon an extensive review of research, current literature, and best practices.
