Inclusionary Practices Project Professional Learning

The AESD Inclusionary Practices Project (IPP) supports coordinated professional learning for school leadership teams. The project’s purpose is to support educators and school leaders with developing and implementing sustainable systems, structures, and practices that support all students with meaningful access and engagement in inclusive learning environments.

AESD/AWSP Partnership Explained

AWSP (Association of Washington School Principals) and AESD (all nine Educational Service Districts working as one) are partnering to serve leaders participating in the Inclusionary Practices Project. The goal of our partnership is to better serve building leaders as they implement systems change and shift beliefs for improved inclusionary practices. Building leaders can engage with AESD and/or AWSP as an integrated approach to improving inclusionary practices.

Our services are intended to support each other, with AESD’s focus on content learning in relation to systems change and AWSP’s focus on leadership learning within cycles of inquiry. As a part of AESD’s 16 hours of commitment to the Inclusionary Practices Project, tools, learning, and participation in AWSP’s offerings could be one of the many ways a school team completes requirements for the project. Our offerings do not supplant one another, but are in support of one another. If you have more questions, please talk to your AESD Inclusionary Practices Coordinator or AWSP’s Associate Directors for clarification.
