Diversified Learners Leadership Conference: “Ensuring a Place at the Table: Serving Exceptional Learner in Catholic Schools” – Presenter: Michael J. Boyle, Ph.D. Andrew M Greeley Center of Catholic Education, School of Education, Loyola University Chicago. The Church challenges us to reach to the margins. Yet, Catholic schools continue to struggle with balancing practical concerns such as diminishing resources with the call for the preferential option of the marginalized. This practical workshop will help maximize the school’s ability to create systems to address the needs of students that have been marginalized. A process to assess various states of readiness will be presented. Additionally, sample protocols and plans are also offered to help schools refine their approaches to serving students with disabilities. Finally, participants will use the Integrated Framework to build and enhance their action plan to take the next step in creating inclusionary approaches in their Catholic school.
