Inclusive Practices & UDL


We believe that through the use of inclusive practices all students can be supported in their multiple identities. In inclusive learning environments learner variability is valued and all students are seen as competent and capable. All students, especially those who have been historically marginalized - those with IEPs, 504s, multilingual learners, and students of color - will have access to and experience meaningful academic and social opportunities in general education settings. We believe the path to this vision requires us to attend to Beliefs, Practices, and Content. 

Our approach to helping your district or school implement inclusive practices includes ensuring meaningful work at both the systems and classroom levels. We achieve this by working in partnership with educators and school leaders to develop and implement sustainable systems, structures, and practices that support all students and provide staff with the skills and resources they need.
