Back to School Bus Tour visits SBA!

On Tuesday, September 13, 2016 SBA welcomed Sue Swenson, Acting Assistant Secretary for the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS), Ruth Ryder, Acting Director, Office of Special Education Programs, along with some personnel from CAST, including Dr. David Rose who first defined the UDL framework—recognizing that the way individuals learn can be unique.  Superintendent Kelly and Assistant Superintendent Mokaba were also able to spend part of their morning with us. The visit by the US Department of Education and CAST is part of the US Department of Ed’s Back to School Bus Tour and SBA is one of only two MA K-12 school they visited.  During their visit they were able to visit several classroom and were very impressed with our students and what they saw.  Thank you to Sarah Gregory, Stacie Colella, Brandon Pezzuto, Brianna Lane and Danny Gallucci for opening their classrooms.  Thank you to Christine Gray for organizing and hosting the visit.  #sbapride
