The Evolution of Inclusion with Dr. Carol Quirk

Wednesday, September 29 from 6:30-7:30pm
Hosted by District 65, District 67, and District 115

Livestream link
 
In this session, Dr. Carol Quirk, CEO of the Maryland Coalition for Inclusive Education, will discuss how education has changed from a model of labeling and segregating students by perceived abilities to a research-based approach of inclusion and high expectations. With this change, instructional models have evolved to address the varied learning needs of children and youth in a class, such as cooperative learning groups, differentiated assignments, and adapted learning materials. Instead of isolated classes and therapies for those who need advanced or specialized supports, professionals collaborate to integrate supports and services within academic activities. As our knowledge of “what works” in education has evolved, so has the role of educators. Challenges and successes will be shared.

Parents/Guardians are invited to submit questions using this form by Tuesday, September 28 by noon.

Back to school 2021. All in, every day.

We have waited for the moment to get all of our District 67 students back in the building, five days a week, and that time has finally arrived. However, it's not enough to simply get everyone in, the goal is to keep everyone in school for the year. With that in mind, I am sharing expectations for student and staff health and safety practices for the 2021-2022 school year.
