Program: Professional Development

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 playing 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.

51. 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)
