This session will provide a lens into the third year of a multi-year Universal Design for Learning project through the eyes of the UDL: Transforming High School Learning Environments (UDL-THSLE) leadership team. The UDL-THSLE project is a collaboration between Chávez High School, Region 4 Educational Service Center (ESC), and All In. This session will demonstrate how a committed group of leaders and teachers can move UDL from “just one more thing” to the central framework that drives the vision, instruction, and learning on a high school campus.
