UDL & the American Rescue Plan


Tuesday, April 27, 2021

4:00PM – 5:00PM ET

State and local education agency staff making funding decisions



As schools and communities work to transition from the COVID pandemic, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) aims to provide funding to help states and districts accelerate learning and close the gaps in equity that have widened during this time.

What resources and opportunities are available in ARP? How can the funding be used to support educators as they seek to address learning loss and achievement gaps? What can they do to rebuild trust among community stakeholders and create welcoming environments as students return to classrooms?

In this webinar, we will discuss the role Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can play in designing instruction that reaches every learner, including low-income students, English language learners, and students with disabilities.

Join our very special guest, education policy expert Laura Kaloi of DC-based Stride Policy Solutions as she discusses ARP with CAST CEO Linda Gerstle and UDL Implementation Specialist Bill Wilmot.
