Session Location:

About the Session:

It is virtually impossible for a teacher to know how to successfully provide instruction and support for all students in diverse, inclusive contemporary classrooms. Come learn about a Collaborative Response Model, a school framework that values collaborative, action focused responses, data-informed discussions, and timely intervention 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 Alberta school and district examples, as well as access to a myriad of resources will be provided.

Who Should Attend

  • Staff members new to schools with Collaborative Response Models already established.
    • In the afternoon, Lorna will work further with new staff to understand how the model is conceptualized in their school.
  • Leadership teams interested in establishing Collaborative Response Models in their schools or districts.
    • In the afternoon, Kurtis will work with leadership teams to help determine next steps for planning and implementation.
  • Any individuals interested in learning more about the Collaborative Response Model.
