Join us for an Overview of Collaborative Response Web Series

Workshop Overview

It is virtually impossible for a teacher to know how to successfully provide instruction and support for all students in diverse, inclusive contemporary classrooms. In this introductory three webinar series, participants will learn about Collaborative Response, a mindset for educational organizations that values collaborative, action focused responses, data-informed discussions, and timely support to ensure all students can experience success. Come learn how school administration and inclusive learning support leadership teams establish school-wide structures to ensure support for every student in our schools and across our districts. Numerous school and district examples, as well as access to a myriad of resources will be provided.
