How do we respond when we are finding it difficult to focus on our own practice in Collaborative Team Meetings?
  • The collaborative team meeting is intended to flip the focus off the student and place it on examining our practices. This can be difficult to engage team members in reflection that could be uncomfortable and potentially challenging. Kurtis will share some thoughts in relation to how can place the focus on practice, while celebrating the great work that is happening throughout our school.

How do we use our continuum of supports to inform individualized planning for students with families?
  • A continuum of supports does not just have to inform the responses being put in place by teachers. In this session, Kurtis will share how it can also support and inform conversations we are having with families in relation to the important question "What do you think we could be doing to ensure success for your child?"

How can we ensure our continuum of supports is being utilized effectively in team meetings?

Should Collaborative Planning teams and Collaboration Team Meetings involve the same people?
  • A question that is often posed is "what is the difference between who is in collaborative planning and who is a collaborative team meeting? Is it the same team?" Kurtis will address this question and discuss why NOT involving the same people could add another layer of collaborative depth within your school.

How do we onboard new administrators coming to schools with Collaborative Response practices already established?
  • What happens if your school has implemented Collaborative and seen positive growth in student success and collective practice...and now a new administrator is coming to our building?

How to go about establishing progress monitoring in our school?
  • Progress monitoring is often referred to as the forgotten element of data and evidence. However, it is how we monitor progress for our students, as well as the effectiveness of the supports we're putting in place. Kurtis will share some thoughts and practical strategies to inform the establishment of progress monitoring in your school or division.
