Collaborative Services Overview

Thank you for your dedication to Exceptional Education for all students.

Many schools struggle to provide high-quality special education programming due to poor teacher retention and recruitment, lack of resources and funding, or lack of expertise. The Collaborative offers services  to create a systemic change for our students with diverse needs in struggling schools.


After conducting a thorough assessment of Colorado schools’ needs,  we have developed school and district offerings which are meant to aid development of teacher and leader capacity, while also working to retain our teachers and leaders who are currently already practicing in the field. These include:

  • Virtual and in-person trainings and workshops
  • Onsite coaching and assessment of programming
  • In-person Special Education leader gatherings
  • Year-long trainings and cohorts for new and experienced teachers and leaders
  • Access to online resources and online/phone consultation
  • Access to a district/school liaison

And in response to current needs, the Collaborative provides crisis support, webinars and planning workshops, and coaching and thought-partnership to help schools develop programming that meets the needs of their students during this time.
