In partnership with PaTTAN and Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM), Tuscarora Intermediate Unit 11  is offering this MANDATORY training to all school districts and charter schools designated in Cohort 1 for the 2023-2024 school year.

The following are required to participate in this training: Special education teachers who have PASA eligible students, assessment coordinators, and building administrators and/or special education administrators with programming responsibilities and/or oversight of instructional programming. *Every LEA must have administrative presence/participation at the training. Optional participants may include paraprofessionals, related service personnel, general educators, special education teachers who do not have PASA eligible students but students who may benefit, curriculum coordinators, etc.

The training is designed to build districts’ capacity regarding the provision of standards aligned instruction and assessment using Essential Elements for students with complex learning needs. Most personnel involved in PASA are becoming comfortable with the assessment component of PASA DLM. However, based on teacher surveys across the state, not many districts know about or are using the instructional resources that are offered through DLM. In this one day synchronous training, participants will explore essential elements and linkage levels along with the compilation of supporting instructional resources available through DLM to design effective academic programming for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
