Building Success: A Systems Approach to Serving Students with Disabilities from Cross & Joftus, LLC
Thursday, April 26, 2012
2-3 pm EDT
- Christopher Cross, Chairman, Cross & Joftus, LLC - Alice Parker, Special Education Practice Lead, Cross & Joftus, LLC and former Assistant Superintendent, California Department of Education - Kaye Ragland, Director of Inclusion and Special Education, Partnerships to Uplift Communities (Los Angeles, CA) - Teresa Tosh, Assistant Superintendent of Learning Services, Haysville (KS) Public Schools
What is a systems approach to special education? It is founded in an understanding that there is no one secret ingredient for ensuring high quality special education services. Rather, it takes great teaching, differentiation, access to the core curriculum with appropriate supports, high yield instructional strategies, leadership, and collaboration across all parts of the system to promote the best possible results for all students.
Panelists will share the lessons learned and best practices, strategies, and tools developed as a result of collaborative engagements in districts as diverse as rural Kansas and urban Los Angeles, in both traditional public schools and public charter school settings.
