Inclusionary Practices Project Newsletter | September 2020

September 21, 2020

The 2020-21 school year has begun, and while we recognize the unique challenges many educators are facing, we encourage you to continue exploring ways to engage in inclusionary practices. Throughout the duration of this project, we look forward to sharing resources, spotlighting activities across the state, and encouraging dialogue using Basecamp.

IPP Fall Seminar: Voices from the Field, October 8

CCTS is looking forward to hosting our second of three Inclusionary Practices Project seminars. The goal of these seminars is to look at big-picture themes and explore how collaboration between CTE and Special Education increases positive outcomes for students with disabilities.

In the upcoming Voices from the Field seminar, we’ll learn from a panel of practitioners as they share about their journey towards becoming a more inclusive school and/or district. Topics of conversation will include co-teaching and co-planning, best practices for collaboration, inclusion in CTE, systems- and process- thinking, and more.

Whether you are just beginning in your IPP journey or you have been at it for years, we invite you to join us!

Seminar Panelists:

Kim Berhow 
Assistant Director of College and CTE, Evergreen Public Schools

Todd Karnofski
Special Education Coordinator, Evergreen Public Schools

Dan Gallagher
Director of Career and Technical Education, Shoreline Public Schools

Scott Irwin
Director of Secondary Student Services, Shoreline Public Schools
