Ensuring All Students Succeed:
The Imperative for
a Learning Supports Framework

Webinar Presentation now on YOUTUBE,

Rhonda Neal Waltman, EdD, is the senior director of Consultancy Services—Learning Supports for Scholastic, Inc. She has more than 30 years of experience in education reform using a learning supports model and has served as a teacher, counselor, principal, and assistant superintendent. Dr. Waltman first joined Scholastic as a consultant for Learning Supports and led the action research partnership. 

 As the Carnegie Council Task Force on Education of Young Adolescents (1989) stressed, “While school systems are not responsible for meeting every need of their students, when the need directly affects learning, the school must meet the challenge.”

For all students to have the opportunity to succeed, what has to be done in schools to reduce student barriers to learning and to reengage them in the learning process? The Learning Supports Framework demonstrates how the provision of a wide range of learning supports, coupled with effective instruction, is the recipe for ensuring all students succeed.

Informed by the research of Drs. Howard Adelman and Linda Taylor from the UCLA Center for Mental Health in Schools, this webcast will feature Scholastic Education’s Learning Supports staff who will share the school improvement model that has significant results in schools and districts across the nation.

This Solutions to the Dropout Crisis webcast looks at

  • Why a system of learning supports is an imperative for advancing school improvement and reengaging students.
  • What are learning supports and how are they typically deployed in school?
  • How can learning supports be delivered in an organized comprehensive manner?
  • The importance of building a school improvement plan that includes learning supports, along with instruction and management.
  • Key results that indicate a systems approach can directly impact positive outcomes for students.
