AACTE Joins Educating All Learners Alliance
Learners of all ages are being impacted by COVID-19 through school closures, the transition to online learning, and the shortage of teachers and faculty across the nation. AACTE continues its long tradition of addressing the educator career continuum and supporting PK-12 learners in America’s public schools by joining the Educating All Learners Alliance (EALA), an alliance dedicated to equity for complex learners.
EALA is specifically designed to help ensure the continuity of special education services during remote instruction and to spotlight best practice approaches for schools and educators. It represents a dynamic alliance of non-partisan groups deeply committed to the success of students with disabilities.
The EALA website includes a variety of resources that are publicly accessible and made possible by the contributions of national education organizations, including AACTE. Educators can search the resource library, a curated list of credible and actionable resources paired with examples from the field of schools and teachers adapting ways of meeting student needs. Join the member community to post discussion questions, participate in the discussion, share a bright spot, or write a blog post. Contribute to a Forum, an area of the site where you can connect with your peers to discuss successes and challenges. Or educators can submit a resource and the national network of experts will review it for posting. Educators also have access to synchronous professional learning opportunities by attending a webinar. Every week EALA will host three webinars or office hours for educators to ask experts direct questions.
EALA has come together to ensure equity for all learners. AACTE hopes you will join educators from across the nation in this opportunity to network, engage, and contribute to this community.
