These webinar modules were developed to support schools that had been identified as having disparities amongst specific student populations. The live webinars took place in Spring 2019, and were then curated into this module guide. While originally developed for those schools identified through the accountability system, this guide can be used as a resource for any school or district.

Understanding the Impact of Poverty on Student Outcomes - LEAP Online Interactive Training Module

The Leading Educational Access Project (LEAP) was created in response to research showing that Massachusetts low-income students are far more likely to be found eligible for special education services than other students.  Low-income students who are identified as eligible are also more likely to be educated in substantially separate classes and activities. This online interactive training module was developed by ESE and guided by ongoing partnership work with LEAP districts and collaboratives. It is intended to provide the user with a fundamental understanding of the impact that poverty can have on student performance and is intended for school and district use with groups or individuals allowing for direct instruction to school personnel.
