Collaborative Teams

Please make sure that you continue to have an agenda prior to CT meetings. If Kristin Corbin or myself have something to share with teams that requires a chunk of time, we will let you know prior to the meeting.

Examples of what CT should be scheduling on agendas:

  • discuss progress on data cycles
  • conduct studies on effective teaching practices
  • review data as a grade level
  • collaboratively score Common Formative Assessments (CFA)
  • conduct in school or out of school learning walks/reflection on learning walks
  • discuss RtI
  • plan for Learning Mentors and review student progress
  • discuss student behavior and learning plans
  • review curriculum

Examples of what not to schedule on a CT agenda:

  • update calendars
  • plan Field Trips
  • prepare for a classroom craft time

No Collaborative Teams on October 24

We will not meet for CT on 10/24 as many of you may need an extra moment to prepare for evening conferences.

Next STAT Meeting November 7

Our next STAT Meeting is Wednesday, November 7. If you are referring a student to STAT, you must have the form completed before this date. All updates on progress must be completed on the form and all assessments must be linked on the document prior to the meeting. All screenings must also be completed one week prior to the meeting or we will not meet on the student.

Please progress monitor all students below the 25% level the week of October 29.

Please refer to your grade level STAT manual for the referral forms, or on the district website that I reviewed with you at CT.

Classroom Learning Walks

Please schedule Learning Walks once a month during a CT(PLC) time. You can also reach out to grade levels/staff at other elementary buildings in the district. Please send me an invite when your CT schedules learning walks. Please use the same Learning Walk Form that you completed during your walks last year. I believe the form will be updated soon.
