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.  


This Fall, ABC is running a pilot improvement cohort in Washington, DC to test our assumptions and refine our approach.

We’ve selected group of DC public schools who are working together to implement and measure small tests of change using rapid feedback cycles, coaching, and other evidence-based techniques to improve systems for collaboration in order to better meet the needs of diverse learners.
