Check out how Cardiff School District held a successful Ability Awareness Fair!

Cardiff School District held an Ability Awareness Fair on March, 24 2017. The fair was held simultaneously on both campuses. Classrooms came in at designated times, but students were allowed to come back a second time during their recess and lunch if they didn't get to see everything. Ashley Smithey, Director of Special Education in Cardiff, along with the Cardiff team, did a wonderful job planning and organizing this event. Check out the video below to see how they did it!

The ultimate goal of the 2016/2017 Classroom Collaboration project was to help create model classrooms, utilizing a UDL model for academic and language enriched classroom environments, that could potentially be replicated in the local district and/or SELPA wide. This year we were able to work with 3 phenomenal teachers, related service providers and paraeducators. We learned a great deal from them!
