3. Western NY Digital Consortium Kick-Off

Program: Professional Development

Audience: District Digital Leadership Team, 3-8 representatives per team

Dates: 1/31/2020

Wait List
The K-12 Digital Consortium was created to support K-12 instructional technology innovations and share lessons learned as a collaboration between the University of Rochester Center for Learning in the Digital Age and over 20 districts and BOCES in the Rochester region - including Wayne-Finger-Lakes, Monroe 1 and Monroe 2 BOCES.

This half-day free workshop has been designed primarily for teams from districts interested in joining the Consortium, as a way to develop a common vision and begin the networking process. These districts are encouraged to send a team including leaders and decision-makers in charge of their technology innovations, as well as teacher representatives.

Districts who are already Consortium members are also invited to send a team, to both take advantage of this valuable professional development and networking opportunity for teachers and school leaders who may not yet have participated in this event, and also to "give forward" by sharing their own experiences and lessons learned.

The workshop has been designed to develop a shared vision of what it means and what it takes to successfully implement and leverage technology district-wide to enhance the educational environment, share information about what the Consortium can offer to support these endeavors, and begin the networking process by having participants share challenges and best practices about a few selected topics. As such, the workshop is very experiential and interactive, and includes several group activities - some to be conducted with members of the same district team and others involving participants having similar roles in different districts. It will also include a few readings and other tasks to be completed online in preparation for the face-to-face workshop activities.

14. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools

Program: Professional Development

Audience: This course is designed for School Personnel

Dates: 2/18/2020 to 2/21/2020

Cornell University developed the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) model for residential care as part of its Residential Child Care Project in the early 1980's. The foundations of this curriculum are in research based literature and programs. In 2007 Cornell responded to requests from various Board of Cooperative Education (BOCES) Centers and other public schools and adapted the TCI curriculum to meet the needs of schools. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools (TCIS) gives WFL BOCES a framework for implementing a crisis prevention and management system that reduces the need to rely on high-risk interventions, complements the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach and includes aspects of trauma informed care.

There are three main competencies taught in the TCIS Training:

Competency 1: Prevent and de-escalate potential crises with students
Competency 2: Safely and therapeutically manage crisis situations
Competency 3: Be able to process with students to help improve their coping skills

There are three levels of certification:

Level 1: Verbal de-escalation skills including the Life Space Interview (initial training of 21 hours)
Level 2: Verbal de-escalation, LSI and TCIS protectives (initial training of 24 hours)
Level 3: Verbal techniques, protectives and physical restraint techniques (initial training of 28 hours)

This training will certify verbal de-escalation skills including the LSI and TCIS protectives and physical restraints.

1. AAC implementation is not intuitive 2. communication is not compliance.

This training series assumes topics related to core vocabulary instruction and explicit creation of communication opportunities have already been covered, and communication partners require additional information to improve the effectiveness of implementation.

The structure of this training series lends itself to delivery over time for ongoing discussion and support related to AAC implementation. It emphasizes that modeling language with AAC is the communication partners responsibility (full stop!

47. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools

Program: Professional Development

Audience: This course is designed for School Personnel

Dates: 4/6/2020 to 4/9/2020

Cornell University developed the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) model for residential care as part of its Residential Child Care Project in the early 1980's. The foundations of this curriculum are in research based literature and programs. In 2007 Cornell responded to requests from various Board of Cooperative Education (BOCES) Centers and other public schools and adapted the TCI curriculum to meet the needs of schools. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools (TCIS) gives WFL BOCES a framework for implementing a crisis prevention and management system that reduces the need to rely on high-risk interventions, complements the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach and includes aspects of trauma informed care.

There are three main competencies taught in the TCIS Training:

Competency 1: Prevent and de-escalate potential crises with students
Competency 2: Safely and therapeutically manage crisis situations
Competency 3: Be able to process with students to help improve their coping skills

There are three levels of certification:

Level 1: Verbal de-escalation skills including the Life Space Interview (initial training of 21 hours)
Level 2: Verbal de-escalation, LSI and TCIS protectives (initial training of 24 hours)
Level 3: Verbal techniques, protectives and physical restraint techniques (initial training of 28 hours)

This training will certify verbal de-escalation skills including the LSI and TCIS protectives and physical restraints.

Frequent testing does not improve student learning outcomes any more than frequent weigh-ins improve health. When districts, schools, and teachers develop a healthy instruction and assessment system, everyone benefits! Administrators and mental health professionals have fewer fires to put out, teachers have a strong sense of how to help their students learn, and students have a clear picture of their strengths and a pathway for improving their performance.

"Looks like you have a second degree burn. Let's get this covered up so you don't get an infection." ~Tier 2 Instructional Intervention and Assessment

When students are struggling, what instructional and assessment steps can you take to turbocharge a student's learning so they can catch up to their peers? We can borrow from first responder protocols and apply these lessons to our instruction and assessment. In particular, we will learn about how to use state test question stems to build supportive classroom formative assessments in ELA and math that are aligned to the Next Generation Learning Standards.

"Annie, Annie, are you OK? Call 9-1-1!"~Tier 3 Instructional Intervention and Assessment

When students are in crisis, it is important to provide immediate and critical learning and social-emotional supports. Discover how lessons from the ER apply to students who need intensive services.
