Great Read
“With so many interruptions and variations in student experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, there are those who assume that students will have lost a year or more of learning. But students did learn during the pandemic.” So begins Continuing the Journey: Mathematics Learning 2021 and Beyond, a joint publication from NCTM, NCSM, and ASSM.

Inclusive Practices Spotlight

What do INCLUSIVE PRACTICES look like in team infrastructure?

  • Case management structure runs across varying disability types and severity.
  • Educational assistants are not assigned to support only one teacher or only one student.
  • Inclusion is considered when determining the master schedule.
  • Labels of programs and positions focus upon inclusive language (Learning Specialist VS. ERC Teacher/Life Skills Teacher, etc.)
  • School team and service providers meet regularly to discuss students and have shared ownership over student needs in the school.
