Supports

​​​​The Orange County Department of Education is both the home to the National Training Center for OCDE Project GLAD® AND is a Regional Training Center (RTC).

The OCDE Project GLAD® RTC supports growth and implementation of the model throughout California, creating systems of sustainability within PK-12 classrooms.

Our services include:

  • Supporting local school district's implementation of the OCDE Project GLAD® model
  • Strenghtening trainers and educators in effective classroom practices
  • Delivering professional learning
  • Engaging in local research, development and data analysis
  • Operating as thought partners with districts as they develop integrative methods for OCDE Project GLAD® and state initiatives, policies and programs (i.e., CA Dual Immersion, EL Roadmap, Social Emotional Competencies)

The OCDE Project GLAD® model aligns to Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS) to ensure all student needs are met, highlighted here https://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/cr/ri/corecomp2.asp​ by California Department of Education's reference to Rti2 Core Component Area 2: High Expectations.​
