Building the Infrastructure for Inclusion & Equity
Building the Infrastructure of Inclusion & Equity in Today’s Schools
AWSPs’ Building the Infrastructure for Equity and Inclusion with Shelley Moore recorded webinar helped school leaders build and flex their “why inclusion, why now” muscles? This webinar was based around Shelley’s research in theory and effective practices of inclusion, special education, curriculum and school leader professional development.
In this two hour virtual session, we looked at what research and literature shows are infrastructural conditions that can support inclusion at a systemic level. Regardless of where communities are in their journey, this session considered the needs of both students and teachers as communities continue to make the shift towards inclusion for all students.
