The Catapult Learning Difference

Through Professional Development Pathways, education leaders and teachers will be confident in their ability to support a diverse learners. Each pathway focuses on equipping your school’s leaders, teachers, and coaches with the tools, skills, and help they need to effectively support all students.

Social-emotional learning (SEL) is an important component of education, especially in schools today. The challenge many leaders and teachers face is effectively incorporating high-quality SEL into day-to-day instruction. Our SEL Professional Development Pathway equips leaders, teachers, and other staff with skills to address the social-emotional needs of students through culturally responsive teaching and trauma-informed practices. This pathway can empower your staff members to cultivate their own competencies that promote self-care and improve student support.

With a growing number of special education students spending the majority of their time in general education, creating inclusive classrooms is more important than ever. Along our Inclusion Professional Development Pathway, your staff will explore a full range of instructional strategies that promote learning environments that support all students.

Organizing a school around a model of tiered intervention can ensure that all children have access to high-quality instruction and behavioral support, and that struggling learners are effectively identified, supported, and served. With our MTSS Professional Development Pathway, your leaders and teachers will learn the essential components of effective multi-tiered support, the steps necessary for successful MTSS implementation, and strategies to design and deliver tiered academic and behavior interventions.

All students deserve an equal opportunity to succeed in a positive, inclusive learning environment. Our equity-focused Professional Development Pathway supports continual professional growth in equity, cultural proficiency, and social-emotional learning.
