I think "back burner" means that a lot of teaching time is spent working on successful participation. To remove the challenge of academics, the students are given work that isn't frustrating - i.e. work that is easy enough they should already be able to do a majority of it. This is often tricky to do - the work has to be low-frustration, but still engaging enough that students aren't bored or think it's "baby work."

I think it's wrong that your district isn't allowing you to modify the curriculum to meet their needs - isn't that what the I in IEP is for?!
