In 2015, in partnership with the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR), the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) developed and published a set of high-leverage practices (HLPs) for special educators and teacher candidates.

The HLPs are organized around four aspects of practice: Collaboration,Assessment, Social/emotional/behavioral and Instruction. More information about the HLPS can be found at https://highleveragepractices.org

Through the TRLE grant, Broome- Tioga BOCES and Otsego Northern Catskills BOCES formed a leadership team of high-quality special education teachers from the region. These teachers collaborated around the six barriers and HLPs to build and develop a resource website which can be used by teachers across the state: Meeting the Needs of All Students in a Remote and Hybrid Environment
