Timetabling for staff collaboration, team meetings and student interventions is a necessary step for schools looking to sustain Collaborative Response efforts. There are countless examples of schools of all shapes and sizes redesigning their timetable to embed collaboration and intervention.
As part of the Collaborative Response Membership, a growing collection of Timetable Overviews, including video interview footage with leaders and timetable examples, are available. Check out the list below as new overviews are added regularly.

I had the opportunity to work with Kurtis in looking at creating opportunities for school wide Collaborative Response through timetabling in our Kindergarten to Grade 12 school. Timetabling in a K through 12 school can be challenging, but Kurtis' efficient approach allowed me to see opportunities across our school timetable for the people and spaces needed for a school wide Collaborative Response. The process was fast and efficient, and I left the work time with Kurtis with a plan to move forward with.
We have embedded our Collaborative Planning Time and Collaborative Team Meetings within our timetable for the last two years at Griffiths-Scott School. This dedicated time has resulted in stronger teams with increased cohesion and clarity. The weekly block gives our teams time to focus on student learning, instruction, assessment and intervention with intention and purpose.
