Is your state or district asking you to implement UDL? As states and districts put the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in to practice they are adopting UDL. Come learn how UDL is highlighted in federal and state policy documents. States are adopting UDL in micro-credentials, UDL in literacy curriculum, UDL in assessments, UDL-based personalized learning, embedding UDL in educator professional development and preparation. Finally, learn what is happening to encourage parental understanding and advocacy of UDL. Participants will learn about where to access guidance and support documents as well as a UDL Parent Toolkit.
