Representatives from the APS Special Education Department spoke on scaffolding instruction to meet the needs of students with disabilities.

The APS Special Education Department was invited to present at the Urban Collaborative meeting in Pittsburgh recently. The following were in attendance: Deborah Dominguez-Clark, Mona Sherrell, Carla Greene and Zoe Ann Alvarez. Their presentation was titled, "The Balancing Act: Scaffolding Instruction to Meet the Demands of Common Core State Standards while Individualizing Education for Students with Disabilities."
