Implementing Behavior Interventions in Schools

Implementing Academic and Behavior Interventions in the Schools

Funding Source: U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs
Principal Investigator: Carol Davis

Project Summary:
This doctoral leadership program builds on the strong existing doctoral program at the University of Washington, developing a discipline of study and experience that produces leaders in special education who are committed to solving issues of practice and implementation related to the academic and behavioral difficulties of students. The program has a particular focus on the needs of students in high-needs, urban schools.

The framework for this program is the integrated fieldwork of our leadership fellows in the Ackerley Partner Schools Network. While students increase their depth of knowledge in the areas of research, teaching, and practice through coursework. The field experiences will impact the research questions and teaching practices by identifying and recognizing the organizational variables that facilitate implementation of the evidence-based strategies in these high-need schools.
