Learning has been interrupted since the spring of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. IU13 is committed to supporting member school districts in their efforts to accelerate learning for students during the 2021-2022 school year by providing technical assistance, consultation, and professional development in four areas.
IU13 is supporting member districts with…
- Healthy System Conditions that both engage community stakeholders in fully understanding the needs of the system and respond with staffing, technology, scheduling, and continuous improvement processes that create the conditions for acceleration of learning.
- Supportive Learning Environments that place inclusive, trauma-informed principles at the core of planning to create a safe space for learning, form positive and supportive relationships, and support students and staff to mentally and socially recover.
- High-Quality Academics that cultivate a thriving data culture to ensure every student has access to the instructional strategies, resources, and supports necessary to successfully engage with and master grade-level content.
- A System of Scaffolded Supports that provide a continuum of evidence-based academic, behavioral, social, and emotional supports aligned with student needs.
Professional Development Webinars
During the 2021-2022 school year, IU13 is providing no-cost, virtual professional development to member schools based on their requests and feedback, educational research and promising practices, and guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Pennsylvania Association of Intermediate Units.
Each after-school webinar is one-hour in length and takes place from 3:30-4:30pm. Attendees who participate in these synchronous webinars can earn Act 48 credit. All sessions will be recorded and posted on IU13’s Accelerated Learning Webinar Series YouTube channel. Participants must register to attend each session using Frontline.
Webinars will continue to be added here as available. (NOTE: Scroll down in the table below as needed to see additional sessions.)
