What is the RESET Method?
It is a brain based practice that was developed to support mental & emotional wellness during times of emotional dysregulation. Based in neuroscience, the RESET Method is a 5 step strategy to recognize and regulate our emotions. We know that what we practice gets stronger and this method is a brain based way to do just that and as we follow the pathway of: Recognize (feelings, emotions, sensations). Experience (breathe & feel all that is here). Strategize (what strategies do you have in your tool belt?). Evaluate | explore (what strategies best fit this experience?). Try ( be gentle with yourself as you try the best strategy for the moment). As we practice this, we unlock our ability to eventually self-manage many of our emotions and this empowering method is key to emotional and mental wellness and academic {lifetime learning} success. When students and adults can recognize and regulate their emotions - behaviors can shift and success can happen!

50. Coaching for Success, Systems Matter!

Program: Professional Development

Audience: School Administrators

Dates: 2/15/2022

Over the past 20 years the interest and demand for professional learning in the form of instructional coaching has increased dramatically. While there are likely many reasons for this, one of the strongest is the understanding that "one and done” workshops do not yield high impact results. At its heart, instructional coaching offers a personalized approach to professional learning at the classroom level. Schools that implement coaching models have the best intentions, but many times the plan and system for this work in unclear leaving both the coaches and teachers frustrated, therefore not yielding the intended results. During this virtual workshop, administrators will have the chance to explore coaching models and reflect on how this approach to professional learning can strengthen your school vision and goals. The workshop structure and materials will support all participants, whether your district/building already has a coaching model in place or if you are simply interested in learning more about this form of professional learning.

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 educators 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)

Audience: New CDL Drivers

Dates: 4/25/2022 to 4/29/2022

Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT)

FMCSA's Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT) regulations set the baseline for training requirements for entry-level drivers. This includes those applying to:

• Obtain a Class A or Class B CDL for the first time.

• Upgrade an existing Class B CDL to a Class A CDL; or

• Obtain a school bus (S), passenger (P), or hazardous materials (H) endorsement for the first time.

The ELDT regulations are not retroactive; the entry-level driver training requirements do not apply to individuals holding a valid CDL or an S, P, or H endorsement issued prior to February 7, 2022.

If an applicant who obtains a CLP prior to February 7, 2022, obtains a CDL before the CLP or renewed CLP expires, the applicant is not subject to the ELDT requirements.

Any individual who meets one of the exceptions for taking a skills test in 49 CFR Part 383 is also exempt from the ELDT requirements.

**District participants NOT included in COSER -- training will be $5000 per trainee

Program: Professional Development

Audience: Grades 6-HS math teachers, administrators, instructional coaches

Dates: 5/1/2022 to 5/31/2022

Registration Deadline May 1st, 2022

The purpose of this four-module, asynchronous course is to connect John Hattie's Visible Learning research to instructional strategies that accelerate student learning in math class. You will identify learning intentions and success criteria around a math standard of your choice. You will then examine dynamic and high-probability teaching strategies that support surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning and apply this information to your chosen standard for this school year.

Course Objectives

By the end of this course you will be able to:
* explain and evaluate the characteristics of mathematical tasks and talk that make learning visible;
* demonstrate the importance of well-timed, effective strategies and instructional routines for mathematics education;
* employ mathematics curriculum and instruction practices as they relate to the three-phase learning process (surface learning, deep learning, and transfer learning)
* prepare a reflection log of learning; and
* submit a final participant task document to consolidate your learning and earn CTLE hours

4 Modules (for a total of 8 hours of CTLE credit):
Module 1: Overview (2 hours of CTLE credit)
Module 2: Surface Learning (2 hours of CTLE credit)
Module 3: Deep Learning (2 hours of CTLE credit)
Module 4: Transfer Learning (2 hours of CTLE credit)

CTLE: 8 hours upon successful completion of final project and course evaluation
