About this learning opportunity

When coming together to discuss and respond to the needs of students, intentional structures are important. Without them, conversations can spiral and frustration can emerge. In this session, Kurtis will unpack the structures needing to be considered when establishing Collaborative Team Meetings, a layer of team meeting critical when implementing a Collaborative Response within a school. Numerous resources, samples and access to video elements will be shared.

This session addresses the TQS competency #4: Establishing Inclusive Learning Environments

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