Leading Inclusive Catholic Schools

Catholic schools are responding to the call to open their doors to students with disabilities in increasing numbers yet are in need of supports and guidance in order to effectively build more inclusive environments.  This certificate program aims to build both the knowledge and experiential base of Catholic school principals and teacher leaders to develop school-wide systems, structures and practices to support all learners.  For many Catholic school leaders, professional preparation in the areas of exceptionality, special education law and procedure, and interventions/accommodations has been limited.  In order to increase the knowledge base in these areas, the Certificate in Leading Inclusive Catholic Schools has been created.
