Get to Know CITES
Ways my district and I participate
There are two ways your district can be involved with CITES. Each option engages interdisciplinary district teams in contributing to the development of a body of evidence-based practices for developing and sustaining inclusive technology ecosystems in districts across the country.
- CITES KNOWLEDGE TEAMS: We’re looking for districts that have experienced some level of success with collaboration between assistive technology (AT) and instructional technology (IT). Knowledge Teams make a short-term commitment to contribute information and evidence about the benefits and challenges of their experiences by completing a survey and participating in an interview. NOTE: Our call for interest in CITES Knowledge Teams closed 6/26/19.
- CITES FRAMEWORK TEAMS: We’re looking for districts that, with technical assistance from the CITES Team, will make a long-term commitment to try out evidence-based practices and provide cyclical feedback on what works, what doesn’t and so much more. What we learn together will inform the development of the CITES framework, a flexible tool that will be used by districts across the nation to implement and scale up inclusive technology ecosystems.
Share your contact information and in the next few weeks we’ll send details about how to become involved and the participation criteria. You’ll have time to share the information with others in your district, ask questions of us, and make a final decision about your level of participation before you commit. We know the time is right for showing the world that AT and IT can work seamlessly together and we hope your district is with us!
