Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This session will discuss a pilot investigation that involves the journey of one middle school, designated as a "focus school" by the State's Department of Education. It was referred to the Delaware ACCESS Project for support related to implementing UDL to meet the needs of all its learners, including English language and special education students.
Within the school of approximately 500 students, it is reported that 18% of their students are ELL and 20% are special education eligible. 58% of the students were identified as "low income". Additionally, 53% of students were Hispanic/Latino, 27% African American, and 17% white. 25% of the students have been suspended over the course of one school year.
The goal of the pilot is to provide coaching and professional development in the area of UDL in order to increase student achievement, engagement and accessibility. The pilot looks to answer the question, "How does the use of the UDL framework impact achievement, engagement of all learners, and Tier-1 instruction including lesson planning and accessibility to the general education curriculum?"
The session will examine the pilot outcomes, milestones, potholes and our map for the future. We will be guiding you along on our journey, incorporating our timeline, coaching sessions and evaluation tools. We will be making pit stops along the way to elicit feedback and to help you plan your own journey to UDL implementation. We will invite you to join us on this road trip as we look to uncover the potential of underserved learners.
