The Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation is an example where UDL has been implemented across the district with the focus on "improving instruction". Included on this site are a set of videos and podcasts that features how UDL principles are being implemented in the classroom with all students.
"In 2003, Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation (BCSC), an Indiana district serving 11,000 students, began implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in a single pilot school. Today, UDL principles are applied to one degree or another in all of the district’s 19 schools, first begun as part of a statewide UDL initiative called the PATINS project."
Why bring UDL into your district?
"In this excerpt George Van Horn (District Director of Special Education Services) stresses that he along with Bill Jensen (Director of Secondary Education) and Karen Garrity (Director of Elementary Education) were all focused on improving instruction. They had already adopted inclusionary practices for their district and, rather than add on services, the next leap forward needed to come from a focus on improving core instruction. UDL aligned with their core beliefs."
