BL Delegation Represents School at NCEA Convention

Bishop Lynch High School sent a delegation of administrators, faculty and staff to the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) Convention in New Orleans last week. Three members of the BL contingent – Shannon Byrne, learning specialist; Rachele Piazza, director of teaching and learning; and Amy Wheeler, social studies department chair – presented a session about Bishop Lynch’s first year with Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The session showcased how BL transitioned to a UDL mindset and included examples to adjust lessons and activities to align with the UDL framework.BL President Chris Rebuck and BL Principal Dr. Chad Riley also attended the NCEA Convention where they were able to meet with other Catholic school administrators from across the country, attend professional development sessions on Catholic school leadership and explore hundreds of vendor resources in the exhibit hall.“Many of the NCEA sessions focused on how to establish a culture of belonging on campus. I was happy to note that Bishop Lynch High School is leading the way in this regard,” said Dr. Riley.In addition, BL students and sisters Riley and Bella Sauter were recognized in the convention program. The girls received the NCEA Youth Virtues, Valor and Vision Award earlier this year for their community service commitment to founding Feed the People.The 2023 NCEA Convention will be hosted by the Diocese of Dallas at the Irving Convention Center in April and all Bishop Lynch faculty will be in attendance for this preeminent national Catholic education conference.
