Collaborative Response Overview Session - Every Child Deserves a Team

Feeling overwhelmed with the expectations being placed on teachers, leaders and educational systems to respond to the diverse needs of our learners? Ensuring success for all students is a moral imperative for all schools, but takes a highly coordinated framework of structures and processes within a school to maximize the collective capacity of the team.

Come learn about Collaborative Response, an organizational mindset that involves some fundamental shifts for schools and districts, such as layering collaborative team structures, transforming how we talk about student needs, focusing on students close to meeting expectations through thoughtful organization of data and evidence and ensuring tiering of supports rather than students. Simple shifts that emerge through a focus on Collaborative Response and the good news is that some likely already exist in your building! Numerous school and district examples, as well as access to a large number of resources, will be provided for school leaders wishing to join thousands of schools using Collaborative Response to ensure high levels of success for students and staff!

Scheduling for Elementary Success: Timetables to Embed Intervention and Teacher Collaboration

How do administrative teams navigate the complexities of scheduling embedded collaborative time for teacher teams and interventions for students, while remaining mindful of the myriad of realities that impact scheduling? Once time is established, how can we ensure it is maximized for student learning and teacher collaboration?

This session will focus on a variety of innovative ways to design an elementary timetable focused on school-wide supports for students and embedded collaborative time for teachers, as well as structures and processes to consider once that time is provided. A portion of the day will be spent brainstorming and supporting administrators in reviewing their own timetables and planning for the upcoming school year. Come ready to leave with some ideas to impact your master timetable for the upcoming school year!
