The best search engine for this site is the one above … it will search “inside” all of the documents on the site (e.g. PDF, DOCX, DOC, XLS, PPT, and more). If you are looking for information including that which is not on this site, then the customized Google search engine here is better. It will return results from here and many other sources and you can filter them to see only what you are interested in. When the results come up, make sure you notice the tabs at the top of the results window to help in refining the results. It looks like this, but is in the results from you search:
All | State | Federal | District | SPED-PAC | BSEA
On some smaller devices you will need to swipe that filter bar left and right to see all the options.
Now start your search with a specialized Google search engine!
(You can use all the same Google tricks as well)
1. Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
Searching a phrase in quotes will yield only pages with the same words in the same order as what’s in the quotes. It’s one of the most vital search tips, especially useful if you’re trying to find results containing a specific a phrase.
2. Use an asterisk within quotes to specify unknown or variable words
Searching a phrase in quotes with an asterisk replacing a word will search all variations of that phrase.
3. Use the minus sign to eliminate results containing certain words
You’ll want to eliminate results with certain words if you’re trying to search for a term that’s generating a lot of results that aren’t of interest to you.
