Inclusionary Practices

Inclusion is the belief and practice that all students have the right to meaningfully access academic and social opportunities in general education settings. It’s also a vision and philosophy based on the fundamental belief that all children are competent, capable, and should be held to high expectations. Students with disabilities, especially those with an individual education plan (IEP), are often excluded from core instruction.

ESD 123 is part of the AESD’s Inclusionary Practices Project (IPP)The IPP seeks to address educational inequities experienced by students with an IEP by supporting professional learning for school leadership teams. Professional learning opportunities focus on creating more inclusive education environments using the lens of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The purpose is to support educators with developing and implementing sustainable systems, structures, and practices that support all students with meaningful access and engagement in inclusive learning environments.
