Add your voice to our dedicated group of educators, parents, and others who are passionate about driving change.

Three Ways to Join the Challenge


Our facebook group, Special Education Systems Transformation, is a community of diverse stakeholders passionate about making school systems and processes better for all students, especially students with diverse learning needs. This group brings change-makers together to share ideas about transformative school improvement and initiatives that impact educational outcomes for all students. Members aim to move past compliance to provide high-quality programming for all.  


In 2019, ABC will launch a pilot challenge in Washington, DC to test our assumptions and refine our approach. We are looking for school partners who are interested in working together to strategically improve special education programs while building our tools and community.


ABC creates resources and tools to benefit the special education community. To be the first to know when more new tools are announced, sign up for ABC’s email newsletter.
