Inclusion in 21st CCLC Environments: Webinar series

Monday, October 10, 2016 at 11:11 AM (Eastern)


The Lessons From the Field: Serving All Students, Including Students With Disabilities project worked to identify, collect and share with states and their grantees lessons from the field. The products you see here can help you design and implement high-quality, 21st CCLC and other out-of-school programs that support all students.

Released in 2016, the project’s 11 implementation guides and six webinars focus on helping programs build capacity to meet the needs of all students, including students with disabilities. Experts, advocates and 21st CCLC practitioners and program leaders contributed their knowledge and experience to support your efforts to create and sustain high-quality, inclusive programs.
