2022 OSEP Leadership & Project Directors' Conference
Christine Fox and Angel Morgan, CAST
This session addresses the Secretary’s priority area, Promoting Equity in Student Access to Educational Resources, Opportunities and Welcoming Environments. The Center for Inclusive Technology Education Systems (CITES https://cites.cast.org/) at CAST is creating and disseminating a framework of evidence-based practices to help instructional technology and assistive technology programs at local education agencies work together to enhance the use of technology to support all students’ success. The Center also provides technical assistance to local education agencies, educators, and families to ensure that students with disabilities can use the technology tools they need to foster learning and life success. Family engagement is critical to student success and is an essential component to the CITES framework.
