The BEST PD day I have ever been to in 14 years!

Session Participant
Edmonton Public Schools Workshop

Kurtis recently facilitated some action planning for our school during a professional learning day. Kurtis’ ability facilitate a step by step process in creating our school goals, focuses and ensuring that all staff members had a valuable role to fulfill allowed for us to move forward with clarity for the coming school year in terms of our vision. Through purposeful tasks, our staff was able to collaborate and reflect deeply about the work we have completed and then to determine our priorities. Kurtis is a natural at ensuring that all players are part of the process. The templates and materials were seen as incredible assets to the process. We would highly recommend the Jigsaw Learning team to any school and jurisdiction team.

Principle - Chamberlain School

We have been working with the Jigsaw Learning team for 3 years now, and are impressed with their ongoing teacher support and instructional coaching for teacher collaboration. They are very respectful and interested in Îyîniw Mâmtohnehicikan (Cree thinking) and Nehiyaw Pimatisiwin (Cree Ways of being). They work collaboratively with our teachers to offer support, coach and share ideas, plus they review the progress made in each school. Students really look forward to the CRM Focus time, as they have great success in these blocks.Their significant success was apparent in the first year that our school implemented the Collaborative Response Model. We started with 80% of our students needing urgent intervention and 0% of our students at/above benchmark. By the end of the first year, our urgent intervention numbers dropped to 43% and our at/above benchmark numbers increased by 12%.

This posting is part of a series, aimed at sharing high-impact ideas and practices for consideration in relation to Collaborative Team Meetings. A common refrain that we hear from schools is that once regular collaborative time is established (weekly or bi-weekly for teams), how can we ensure that the collaborative time for teams when NOT engaged in collaborative team meetings is as effective as the time when teams are engaged in collaborative team meetings? One idea to consider infusing into the…
