Accelerated Learning Toolkit

The landscape of education across Pennsylvania (PA) has changed— and ultimately, will be transformed—as we work to design more equitable and responsive school systems. As we plan for the 2021- 22 school year, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), PA intermediate units (IUs) and Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN) provide this resource bank for school leaders with the goal of helping teachers, support staff, families, and students emerge from these unprecedented times and start a new school year stronger than ever.
