"This was a career changing professional learning opportunity! Every aspect of this Retreat left me with relevant ideas, processes, and strategies that I can take to my staff to move our Collaborative Response work forward."

- Melissa Skuce, Assistant Principal, Battle River School Division

"Attending the Collaborative Response Retreat was an amazing insight into how a school and district can develop a sustainable structure and process for securing supports for students. For the first time in years I feel that supporting my students does not have to be overwhelming and impossible. I can target behaviours and academic supports without targeting an individual student. All students get to benefit from interventions and supports instead of a single student."

- Beverly McNutt, Teacher, Livingstone Range School Division

"The Collaborative Response Retreat is an excellent opportunity for school-based teams to learn, reflect and plan. The combination of knowlegable speakers and team planning time made it extremely valuable for me as a school based leader."

- Ted Hutchings, Principal, Chinook's Edge School Division

"The Retreat was a great opportunity to connect and collaborate with other schools, sharing our journeys with Collaborative Response! The sessions provided us with key take-aways to bring back to our staff, and the time allotted during the Retreat to plan as a school team was very valuable! Thank you Jigsaw Learning for a rejuvenating couple of days!"

- Lori Knoblauch, Principal, Peace River School Division

"I was a Collaborative Response novice before the Retreat. The Jigsaw Learning team and presenters did an incredible job of providing an overview of Collaborative Response in meaningful and digestible presentations. The team planning time that was built into the Retreat was invaluable. It provided an opportunity to ask clarifying questions, to process what I was learning, and to discuss with my school team about how we want to take our learning back to our building."

- Lauren Price, Teacher, Rocky View Schools
