California school districts have been undergoing change, incorporating Multi-Tiered System of Supports into their schools and district. This has decreased the population of students with IEPs in Special Day Classes, increasing the inclusion of students in classrooms throughout the district. Based on data attained from educator and administrator surveys, teachers, both general classroom and certificated specialist teachers, would like to learn how to provide quality arts instruction to all students in their classroom. They need the instructional strategies needed to allow the various types of learners access to arts learning, and would like to receive more professional learning in this topic.
