Today, Nov. 14, 2017, the National Drop Out Prevention Conference webnar featured the Learning Supports that have been shared by the UCLA Center for many years.  Below is a list of the resources shared on the webinar:

As the Carnegie Council Task Force on Education of Young Adolescents (1989) stressed, “While school systems are not responsible for meeting every need of their students, when the need directly affects learning, the school must meet the challenge.”

For all students to have the opportunity to succeed, what has to be done in schools to reduce student barriers to learning and to reengage them in the learning process? The Learning Supports Framework demonstrates how the provision of a wide range of learning supports, coupled with effective instruction, is the recipe for ensuring all students succeed.

Informed by the research of Drs. Howard Adelman and Linda Taylor from the UCLA Center for Mental Health in Schools, this webcast will feature Scholastic Education’s Learning Supports staff who will share the school improvement model that has significant results in schools and districts across the nation.

This Solutions to the Dropout Crisis webcast will look at

  • Why a system of learning supports is an imperative for advancing school improvement and reengaging students.
  • What are learning supports and how are they typically deployed in school?
  • How can learning supports be delivered in an organized comprehensive manner?
  • The importance of building a school improvement plan that includes learning supports, along with instruction and management.
  • Key results that indicate a systems approach can directly impact positive outcomes for students.
