This session will focus on the challenge of creating collaborative time and the framework for high school administrators and teachers to identify and discuss at-risk students. Inclusive Education practices are becoming an integral piece of the educational environment and high schools are a perfect place to speak about student needs.
From this session, you are intended to have the following takeaways:
- Create the idea within school leaders that it is important to discuss each child within your building whether you are a small high school or a large one.
- Begin the construction of a collaborative response model that works for your high school and to create the networking opportunities with colleagues.
- Use Beaverlodge Regional High School and WR Myers High School as a starting point for conversation of creating a quality learning environment.
Who Should Attend
- High School-based Administrators and Teachers
