Inclusionary Practices Project School Leadership Teams

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.

Assemble your leadership team!

We are looking for 15 School Leadership Teams from each region. Teams consist of two or more leaders from your school. Mini-grants are available to project participants who fulfill the grant requirements.

Leadership teams from around the state will participate in professional learning based on district/school needs to support:

  • Development of a common vision and philosophy of inclusion
  • Analysis of current practices to identify areas of strength and need
  • Creation of an action plan to improve inclusion and inclusionary practices during remote and in-person learning

How it Works

School Leadership Teams will work towards successfully leading the implementation of inclusionary practices in their building by:

  • Scheduling collaboration with their IPP regional coordinator for systems coaching and support with implementation
  • Creating a vision/common commitment statement for inclusionary practices
  • Identifying data for measuring and showing growth related to inclusion
  • Documenting the implementation journey by sharing an action plan, completing a interview, and/or completing a video and be willing to participate in AESD IPP Evaluation Team efforts
