In celebration of Inclusive Schools Week, Washington state’s Inclusionary Practices Professional Development Cadre is eager to announce a free opportunity for educators and families to learn from expert practitioners Shelley Moore and Katie Novak in a three-part series, Zooming In and Out on Inclusionary Practices.

OSPI Superintendent Chris Reykdal kicks off the series with a live welcome on January 11, 2023. He’ll be joined by Moore and Novak, who will explore specific stories about what inclusive practices look, sound, and feel like for individual students (zooming in), while also examining the necessary complex change work needed for inclusion to fully be realized (zooming out). Please share this information widely with your networks.

Throughout the series, participants will:

  • Consider a case study of a student with disabilities and how the system impacts the student, family, and school.
  • Introduce Implementation Science and Improvement Science as drivers of inclusive and equitable systems.
  • Consider how to shift IEPs by recentering student voice in the process.
  • Address leadership barriers and competency barriers such as co-teaching expertise to ensure that effective systems are in place to support all learners.
  • Consider the irony of UDL.
  • Address competency and implementation barriers to ensure that all learners and educators are supported.


  • Shelley Moore is a highly sought-after teacher, researcher, consultant, and storyteller who works with school districts and community organizations throughout both Canada and the United States. Her research has been featured at national and international conferences and is constructed based on theory and effective practices of inclusion, special education, curriculum, and teacher professional development.
  • Katie Novak is an internationally renowned education consultant, an author, adjunct professor at UPenn, and a former Assistant Superintendent of Schools in Massachusetts. Dr. Novak has more than 20 years of experience in teaching and administration, an earned doctorate in curriculum and teaching, and is the author of 11 published books. Katie designs and presents professional learning opportunities both nationally and internationally focusing on implementation of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), and universally designed leadership.
