Inclusive Practices Summer Symposium




 A four day Symposium on Inclusive Practices for district and/or school teams. Team members will study and learn about current inclusive practices, work together to strategize optimum inclusive educational approaches in their own schools, and return to their school settings armed with information and implementation plans to provide for the widest possible inclusion of students with disabilities in general education settings.  


Districts (LEAs) may send up to two teams to the Symposium and individual charter schools may send one team. Teams may consist of 5 to 10 individuals. Each team must include a school or district administrator, general education teacher(s), and special education teacher(s). Other team members may include paraeductors and district or school site support staff.
