Addressing Barriers to Learning and
Closing the Achievement Gap:
New Directions for Student Support

We all recognize the urgency arising from the demands made by the No Child Left Behind Act.

With increasing accountability for student outcomes and dwindling budgets, it is essential to rethink use of existing learning support resources to maximize a school's capability for addressing barriers to student learning and teaching.

We have developed a set of Presentations Handouts/Slides focused on key facets of this critical topic.
