About this learning opportunity

When a Collaborative Response mindset is truly embedded within a school, it becomes the how for accomplishing the why in a school’s school improvement plan. In this session, Kurtis will share how to effectively establish meaningful school goals and priorities, in relation to system priorities and school-based data, and then how to utilize the foundational components of Collaborative Response to actualize the success you wish to achieve as part of your school improvement plan. Numerous samples and resources will be shared.
