How Community of Practices : Work
A Community of Practice is a robust digital platform with resources, networks and programs designed to facilitate a school improvement initiative focused on a specific topic or issue with the aim of making measurable improvements in student learning and well-being.
Opportunities to engage in school directed and consultant supported school improvement initiatives.
Each school customizes their school improvement initiative to the specific needs of the district and school AND has the capacity to personalize the learning of each participant.
Your school now has the opportunity connect with colleagues across the district, region, state and nation sharing the challenges you face and sharing your exemplary leadership practices, taking a leadership role as models and thought leaders on the national stage.
Let’s walk through the Behavior and Intervention and Support Community of Practice and see how it operates and how educational leaders can use it to implement improvement initiatives in their school
Once a school leader has purchased a School Membership ($589.00) and enrolled their school they complete a school profile, sharing some basic information about the school so that we can connect the school to like schools interested in similar themes.
Schools can enrol as many teachers or participants in their school who wish to participate.
Members create a school password and log in. All school staff members have unlimited 24/7 access to all Communities of Practices in THE SOURCE.
Behavior Support Intervention
Community of Practice
As school leaders join and expand membership to our Behavior Support and Intervention Community of Practice we add some basic contact to our PERSONNEL list – which includes the facilitator who manages the site, a list of Thought Leaders and Partners who contribute content and expertise and a list of schools and educational leaders who are part of the network. You are connected to thought leaders and practitioners across the your region, state and the nation- who share a common interest and responsibility with Behavior Supporty and Intervention.
THE SOURCE Communities of Practice provide:
Access to a wealth of resources and information – related to Behavior Support and Intervention,
Connections to Thought Leaders and Practioners interested in sharing practice and working collaboratively on improvement initiatives and opportunities to
Engage in Professional Development Programs to develop skills and improve strategies and practices or connect with thought leaders with experience and a passion in the subject and implement results driven implementation initiatives with the aim of making measurable improvements in student learning and well-being.
Communities of Practices are very well organized and your resources are just a CLICK AWAY. Just scroll down a short selection of books on your topic, (we looked for the best not the most!), click on the title and you go to a web based book seller, with a more detailed description of the resource. Order the book and have it in days.
Opportunties to Connect
Finally, teams working with a Community of practice provide options of opportunities to enage with Results Driven Implementation. School teams wishing to go deeper can connect with consultants with experience and expertise in Behavior Support and Interventions and design customized school improvement projects aligned to the specific needs of their school culture, their communities and most important with the needs of their students with the aim of making measurable improvements in student learning and well-being.
