THE GOAL of Project Prepare is to increase student achievement by providing training and coaching on evidence-based, high-leverage, and inclusive practices to educators across our state.

Resources include on-demand training to support a wide range of student populations. In addition, task analyses, fidelity checklists, TESS alignments, and templates are available for each topic. The foundational topics prepare classrooms for systematically designed instruction, particularly as we navigate making RISE and the science of reading accessible to all learners.

What is the Project Prepare Coach Training Program?

Coach Training is a program designed for attendees ready to implement Project Prepare at a systems level in their district. This four-part series provides trainees with the tools and supports needed to create a sustainable system that utilizes best practices for students with disabilities.

Comments from our partners in education:

“I loved the presentation by Easterseals. They shared some great resources that I can take back to my teachers.”

Special Education Administrator, South Central Arkansas

“These topics support me in promoting student confidence and independence.”

Special Education Teacher, Gurdon Public Schools

As a general classroom teacher, I did not know what a self-contained room should look like. I didn’t know what a resource room should look like. I knew what a general ed classroom should look like. The resources have allowed me to know what I’m looking for when I go in, the videos on the website (modules every month) have allowed our team to go in and know what we’re looking for, what the classroom teacher should set up, what the paras should be doing. The resources are fantastic!

Heather Smyth, Building Administrator, Marvin Primary School

“This training will help me be more intentional in making connections with students.”

Paraprofessional, Mena Public Schools

“I learned about specific assistive technologies that I was not familiar with, and that could be of great benefit to some of our students.”

Special Education Administrator, Pine Bluff Schools

“Great training. The ladies were very knowledgeable and able to present the information and make it useful with immediate implementation in the classroom!”

Special Education Lead Facilitator, Bentonville Schools
