To the CAST Community
Saturday, December 31, 2022
Happy New Year! As we wrap up another great year at CAST, I can’t help but reflect on the impact this organization has made this year—we’ve shared so many great conversations, meaningful conference connections and in-classroom experiences.
This year was especially exciting for the return to in-person programming in 2022, and CAST’s new approach to meeting the needs of our domestic and international audience by adapting a fully-remote organizational structure.
After the disruption of the past few years, we are grateful for any opportunity that allows us to come together (virtually or in-person) and create new connections with our CAST community. As CAST prepares for a very exciting 40th anniversary celebration in 2024, we can’t help but reflect back on some of the many CAST highlights from this year (take a look at just a few!).
- We partnered with the “Choose Love” program to improve social and emotional learning in New Hampshire prisons
- Since the start of 2022 our Technical Assistance team has flown over 33,000 miles and driven over 1,500 miles to meet with our state and district partners
- Clusive, our digital reading platform, gained new users while adding CAST’s flagship publication, Universal Design for Learning: Theory & Practice
We have started planning a very exciting spring and summer 2023 so stay tuned on ways to stay connected!
P.S. As we prepare for the new year, financial support always allows us to continue making an impact in the classroom each and every day. Consider CAST in your end of year giving.
