NCLD Toolkit on Advocating for Professional Development

NCLD Toolkit on Advocating for Professional Development

May 1, 2018

Because ESSA sets aside professional development funding for all states and local districts, the National Center for Learning Disabilities has put together a helpful toolkit “for parents and advocates to use in their schools and districts” to advocate for professional development that will improve outcomes for students with disabilities. In a blog post, NCLD notes, “When federal policies like ESSA offer opportunities to advance effective practices, we must support school and district leaders and connect them to resources that can help them bring the practices to life in their schools.”
