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. Collaborative Response is 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.
This online course provides an overview of Collaborative Response, ideal for individuals wishing to learn more or organizations engaged in Collaborative Response and needing to build understanding for new staff members.
