The Art of Inclusion: Inclusive Practices, IEP Rights and Responsibilities, and Supporting Our Most At-Risk Student Population. 

Member: $25, Student CTA: $5, Non-member: $75 

Currently in the state of California, many school districts are moving to an “inclusion” model in the general education classroom. This means that many of our general education teachers are working with an increased number of students with IEPs. This one day Pre-conference will address: 

  • IEP rights and responsibilities of general and special education teachers and education support professionals 
  • Inclusive instructional and behavioral practices at the elementary and secondary level 
  • Understanding the universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations of the Smarter Balanced Assessment
