About the Session

Collaborative team meetings, focusing on the emerging needs of students, are at the heart of a school’s Collaborative Response. But how do we ensure that these team meetings are purposeful, efficient and truly moving towards collective action for students? In this session, Kurtis will break down best practices to consider when engaging in collaborative team meetings, as well as share multiple school samples and artifacts. This session is intended for schools already refining the tenets of Collaborative Response or interested in learning more about the school-wide framework. Practices shared can be applied to face-to-face, as well as online meetings (with examples and resources to support both).

This session is part of the year long series focused on growing and refining Collaborative Response structures and processes in schools and districts. Visit the 2020-2021 Collaborative Response Learning Series Overview to see all sessions available in this learning series.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
