These activities aim to help Principal leaders articulate why they are committed to leading their schools to improve outcomes for students with disabilities; know what instructional strategies can be effective for supporting the full array of student needs in grade-level; and implement or improve in their schools’ highly functioning teams that understand data structures, set clear priorities, and install effective practices that produce demonstrable results.
