Demonstration Sites

What is SIP 3.0? 

SIP 3.0 is the third iteration of Supporting Inclusive Practices, which is an ongoing project that provides technical assistance to school districts and sites within the California System of Support. 

This iteration focuses on professional development through school team observation of demonstration sites that have been selected because of their emerging or existing inclusive practices and outcomes. Demonstration site visits will commence in Fall 2024 and be open to current SIP grantees throughout the 2024-2025 academic year. 

The objective of SIP 3.0 is to increase the use of Least Restrictive Environments (LRE) through increasing school personnel’s knowledge and use of inclusive practices and shifting mindsets related to inclusive practices. All of this ultimately leads to increases in student achievement. 

Why Demonstration Sites?

We have learned that witnessing is an essential step for those aiming to increase their use of LRE. Being able to translate theory into practice, place practices in context, and connect with colleagues who can speak to their lived experiences makes educators more confident in their ability to incorporate inclusive practices. 

Who are our partners? 

SIP 3.0 is made possible through our partnerships with the Thompson Policy Institute on Disability (TPI) at Chapman University, Fenix Research and Evaluation, and our demonstration sites themselves.
