The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is offering teachers and other school employees an opportunity to learn more about creating accessible classrooms for students.
The nine-month Accessibility Collaborative and Training Series will include training, courses, and digital resources to promote classroom access and equity. Each session will also include opportunities for collaboration, exploration, and discussion about crucial, timely educational accessibility topics.
"Whether you are an accessibility novice or an intermediate accessibility advocate, this series will help turn you into an accessibility superhero," said Carrie Lane, instructional technology specialist with SDCOE.
