This workshop will explore one District?s journey to move from a special day class model to a District wide neighborhood school model. The discussion will include evidenced-based practices of moving to the least restrictive environment while maintaining high quality best practice instruction for all. The Palo Alto Unified School District has developed a seven-year implementation plan towards building welcoming and inviting classrooms for all. Join us for a discussion of creating a meaningful path towards inclusion, lessons learned and a progress update as we complete our fourth year towards realizing a replicable model. OBJECTIVES: Develop strategies for setting a work plan for transition to inclusive classrooms (assessing your present level of inclusive practices, barriers and opportunities) Discuss philosophical shifts for the work from District to Site based decision making and ownership (what and how to build the capacity of principals to develop a vision for their school buildings) Understand how to use teacher coaches to build capacity at the site level and in the general education classroom (in both co-taught classrooms and learning centers) district wide.
