Description:
Minnesota’s Regional Center of Excellence in conjunction with Minnesota’s Regional Service Cooperatives and Minnesota’s Department of Education will again provide another year of facilitating a Professional Learning Community for Principals in the South Central Service Cooperative’s region. This learning community is intended to be a bedrock of support for principals based on a trusting, supportive and collaborative environment. Topics will be framed within the scope of instructional leadership and drawn from the groups based on need, interest and impact. Such topics could include the principal’s role in carrying out a district’s mission, addressing equity issues, advancing change, aligning the curriculum and instruction to standards, working with school leadership teams to advance initiatives, addressing equity and school culture, and meeting the obstacles that come with multiple hats, the complexity of need, excessive expectation and too little time. The choice of topics is aimed at supporting continual improvement directly aligned to the day-to-day context of the principal’s efforts while moving in a sustained direction. We plan to spend time every session on “Overcoming Human Barriers to Provide an Equitable Education.” This is intended to be a group of principals for principals! The cohort will meet seven times between early October 2022 and early May 2023. Each meeting will be from 10:00 am-1:00pm at the South Central Service Cooperative (SCSC) with time for check-in, new learning (10:00am-12:00pm), and learning from each other opportunities during lunch (12:00pm-1:00pm).

Structured Teaching is the foundation to classroom engagement. It is creating systems for students to be independent and increases the level of engagement by providing the visual clarity and structure to the student day, segments of the day (such as teaching time, independent work) and to the work the student needs to complete. It focuses on generalization of skills in other environments allowing the student to function independently with visual and structural prompts versus requiring a person to provide verbal prompts. Utilizing the elements of Structured Teaching sets the stage for staff to implement other evidence based practices and best practice instructional methods for people on the ASD spectrum and other disabilities. Structured Teaching Session 3: Creating tasks that speak to the student.You have your environment set up, you are utilizing individual schedules, you have designed a work system, now what?How do you create work for your student and how do you know what work they can do? This session will provide more depth to the determining, teaching and creating work for our students to do independently using the principles of structure. This will be a make and take opportunity. We will create pre-determined tasks as well as you will create your own tasks. Link to Event Flyer
