Reform Efforts

Engage and convene educational partnerships that benefit all learners. Preparing and supporting all learners around strategies, practices, and policy that support effective educational opportunities for students with special needs, and, in turn, every child, with equity and access as a focus. The alignment and greater understanding of related initiatives, such as educator preparation, are an essential element for inclusionary practices that will benefit all learners and are the foundation of our work.

  1. The policy and planning committee of the 2021-22 Washington State CEEDAR collaborative has determined to focus on identifying relevant and related state and local policies that impact the knowledge, skill, and availability of the Washington State educator workforce and then develop a strategic recommendations report.
  2. The HLP/UDL/MTSS Committee of 2021-2022 has determined to focus on making connections with standards (InTASC, NAEYC and WA SpEd End),and frameworks (MTSS, UDL, and HLPs) referenced across.
  3. The Knowledge mobilization committee of 2021-2022 has determined to focus on using the ed4allwa.com website to provide Knowledge Mobilization support for Evidence-based practices, high leverage practices, and professional development (PD) to expand best practices related to inclusive education in the State of Washington.
  4. Draft a syllabi protocol to map current scope and sequence to inclusive practices.
  5. Interface with AIPL Award received by CCSSO to incorporate strategies/trainings/PD/for inclusive practices at the leadership level.
  6. The RRD group will interface and align with the KESE grant under the leadership of WA-CEEDAR and the Director of the KESE grant (Nick Gillon).
