NOT OPEN TO DCIU STAFF


Description: Students learn at different paces and require a variety of individualized teaching methods and strategies to master content. It is generally accepted that students need engaging problem based instruction to aid in their mastery of subject matter. But even the best teaching practices will fall short if students are not being met at their current cognitive level. Even though a student may be in sixth grade, if they have not met fifth grade mathematics standards, they should not be taught sixth grade material. Teachers need to implement differentiated instruction into classrooms to better meet all students at their current mathematical understandings. Mathematics builds on itself. If the foundation of mathematics is not mastered, the building blocks of mathematics not developed, students will struggle to make necessary connections within the content material or fully understand higher level mathematical concepts.

Dates: 11/5/2019

Target Audience: School Counselors,School Psychologists,School Social Workers, and Administrators

Description: Participants will be trained in the Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines (formerly known as VSTAG: The Virginia Student Threat Assessment Guidelines). This is an evidence-based model for K-12 schools developed by Dr. Dewey Cornell at the University of Virginia in 2001. In this model, school staff members are encouraged to adopt a flexible, problem-solving approach, as distinguished form a more punitive, zero tolerance approach to student misbehavior. The model is intended to generate broader changes in the nature of staff-student interactions around disciplinary matters and to encourage a more positive school climate in which students feel treated with fairness and respect. This model follows a five-step decision-tree that includes triage, determination if a threat is transient or substantive, and a mental health assessment and safety evaluation that includes law enforcement if needed. The culmination of the threat assessment is the development of a safety plan that is designed to address the problem or conflict underlying the threat and prevent the act of violence from taking place.
