Little Rock, Arkansas | March 4–5, 2024

State adoption of more rigorous academic standards underscores the sense of urgency for schools to determine how to ensure all students learn at the highest levels—including multilingual learners, children with special needs, children from poverty, and children facing trauma. During this hands-on training designed for school or districtwide teams, general and special educators will discover how to utilize PLC best practices to develop collaborative partnerships and identify high-leverage structures and strategies that will level the playing field, accelerate learning, and support success for all students.

  • Learn strategies for building a school culture that believes all students can succeed.
  • Examine collaborative structures to support high levels of learning.
  • Explore the essential elements of a guaranteed and viable curriculum.
  • Understand how to design what a balanced and coherent system of assessment looks like.
  • Discover a protocol for unpacking and prioritizing units at the team level, including scaffolding instruction.
  • Know what it means to design standards-aligned instruction with a focus on tailoring learning based on data.
  • Realize the connections among response to intervention (RTI), professional learning communities (PLCs), and special education and how they all work together in a continuum of service.
  • Identify individualized education program (IEP) goals specific to student areas of deficit and aligned to priority standards.
  • Recognize what is important in developing systems for efficiently and formatively monitoring student progress toward learning goals.
  • Develop a plan for site-based next steps.
