Equipping Educators with Tools for Student Success

Equipping education leaders and teachers with the coaching and professional development necessary to meet the needs of students with special needs is vital.

Our professional development and coaching programs are designed to help your district’s administrators and educators – whether general education, special education, or alternative education – implement new ideas and effective, evidence-based practices that result in student achievement.

Focused Professional Learning Tracks

Our partnerships provide a flexible programming model and options that strengthen a district’s continuum of student and professional learning services. We help districts ensure every student succeeds by working together to build capacity to serve all students with behavioral and academic support needs.

Programs are tailored to the needs of your school community and target specific areas based on our mutual assessment to create the greatest impact. Our solutions are designed for both special and general education leaders and teachers.

Educators will examine the structures and strategies necessary to establish and maintain pro-social climates and cultures for learning to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of schools and to achieve social, emotional, and academic outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities and students from under-represented groups.

Because most general educators educate at least some students with disabilities, an important part of the role of a general educator is to understand and abide by special education-related laws and regulations. Educators will explore major pieces of federal legislation that impact their role as classroom teachers, as well as some of the actions and activities necessary to participate fully as members of the instructional teams supporting students with disabilities.

Educators will explore a full range of instructional strategies identified by the National Center for Intensive Intervention for both special and general educators to meet the needs of students with disabilities and improve student outcomes.

Educators will delve into strategies for understanding the needs of students with learning differences and for designing and delivering flexible and responsive instruction that meets the needs of every learner in the classroom. With a focus on thoughtful co-planning and co-teaching practices, educators will explore how to provide different paths to learning, including specially designed instruction for students with disabilities, to accelerate the performance of all students.

Educators will review the essential components of effective multi-tiered support, which can include Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)*, and Response to Intervention (RTI). We will partner with you to develop a building-level plan for successful implementation of multi-tiered support systems and review strategies for designing and delivering tiered academic and behavioral interventions.
