The first of three ASPIRE Innovative Practices Forum was held in Dublin, Ga. on Wednesday, December 9, 2015. The forum brought together teachers from across Georgia to share techniques and lessons created to work with students with disabilities participating in the ASPIRE Program (Active Student Participation Inspires Real Engagement). GLRS Directors, Terrie Young and Lisa Alred (not present), were presented with a 2015 ASPIRE Leadership Award for their work in scaling up the initiative in their GLRS Regions and taking over the management and implementation of the project. Congratulations. Currently there are over 294 schools and/or facilities participating in ASPIRE.
