Building capacity dissolves differences. It irons out inequalities.
Capacity Building Projects
The goal of Open Access is to leverage the science and practice of implementation to strengthen equity in education systems, support educators, and improve outcomes for learners and their families. This is done by expanding the selection, adoption, and sustained use of educational practices supported by evidence [specifically universal design for learning, accessible technologies and augmentative alternative communication] that result in positive student outcomes.

To remove barriers to learning and increase inclusive opportunities, the projects are designed to develop the capacity of regional implementation teams to train, coach, and provide technical assistance to school sites in these specific focus areas.
