Supporting Successful Strategies To Achieve Improved Results Project (S3TAIR) is a NYSED project funded by the United States Education Department Office of Special Education. The goal of the project is to identify effective instructional practices for students with disabilities in schools throughout New York State , particularly the areas of literacy, positive academic and behavior interventions and supports, and special education instruction. The S3TAIR Project identifies and validates effective practices in schools throughout the State. A list of these validated practices can be found in NYSED's Clearinghouse of Effective Practices (www.s3tairproject.com) . Validated Effective Practice Model schools can apply for mentor grants that will support partnerships for replication with schools in need of assistance or intervention because of their performance results for students with disabilities.
