The annual Inclusive Schools Week celebration is December 3 – 7, 2018 and the theme this year is Kaleidoscope of Friends. The Inclusive Schools Network has a wealth of free resources available to support this week and beyond that may be downloaded.
TIES Center’s new electronic interactive Brief, 10 Reasons to Support Inclusive School Communities for ALL Students, can be used by educators and family members to talk with one another and others about the importance of creating and supporting inclusive school communities.
TIES Center recently published a report, How States Interpret the LRE Clause of IDEA: A Policy Analysis, which examines how states interpret special education regulations associated with the Individuals with Disabilities (IDEA) act, regulations around the least restrictive environment (LRE) clause, the continuum of alternative placements, and the placement for students with disabilities.
TIES Center is the national technical assistance center on inclusive practices and policies. Its purpose is to create sustainable changes in kindergarten–grade 8 school and district educational systems so that students with significant cognitive disabilities can fully engage in the same instructional and non-instructional activities as their general education peers while being instructed in a way that meets individual learning needs.
TIES stands for:
- Increasing Time
- Instructional Effectiveness
- State Support for Inclusive Practices
