All SCUSD teachers have been provided the guidance and opportunity to learn about the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines focused on engagement, representation, action and expression to activate in all learners, the "what," the "why," and the "how," of learning. Using the three principles offered in the guidelines to support lesson design and delivery helps teachers to reach the goal of developing expert learners who are purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, and strategic and goal-oriented.
