Targeted resources within the Project Success Resource Center include: 

  • New Teacher Jump Start

New Teacher Jump Start


Designed specifically for new teachers who support students with disabilities, the New Teacher Jump Start program will build foundational skills with new special education teachers that emphasize planning, collaboration and instructional best practices. Registration is for two (2) half-day virtual sessions and will include relevant, engaging content developed for new teachers.

New teachers will:

  • Identify the key components of maintaining high expectations for students with disabilities.
  • Describe the importance of increasing communication skills in students as a way of increasing independence and access to academics.
  • Unpack standards to increase access to academic content for students with disabilities.
  • Identify specific ways in which implementing elements of Universal Design for Learning can increase access to general education content and settings.
