Program: Professional Development

Dates: 6/6/2019 to 6/7/2019

LEAF
In education, the teacher workforce is made up of over 76% women, yet only 30% of superintendents in New York State are women. The goal of the initiative is to support our women leaders, identify women in education who have leadership potential and help those women to aspire to leadership roles. We encourage all our members (male and female) to support and cultivate the leadership potential of women in their organizations.

Between both the statistics and the stories that have been shared with The Council over the years, it became evidently clear that, as an organization, we needed to do more to support our women leaders and to cultivate the leadership potential of more women in education overall.

This program will address leadership issues related to women, will provide an opportunity for women to share stories, make connections, and network. Speakers will include superintendents from the region and a leading expert from Discovery Education.

13. TCIS Full Training

Program: Professional Development

Audience: This course is designed for All School Personnel

Dates: 6/27/2019 to 7/2/2019

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)

Furthermore, TCIS requires between 10 and 12 hours of refreshers annually, including on-going evaluation and formal assessments to maintain certification.

Program: Professional Development

Audience: Eligibility is restricted: This update is only open to qualified applicants who have successfully completed both updates: "Designing Refresher Training" and "The Post-Crisis Response Training".

Dates: 7/29/2019

Every conflict has at least two sides with differing viewpoints. Each side usually thinks their viewpoint is correct. It is impossible (and undesirable) to eliminate conflict from our lives. Instead we can view interpersonal conflict as an opportunity to work out individual differences without resorting to violence. Direct care workers are in the unique position of modeling conflict resolution strategies and teaching children how to become effective conflict managers.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

• Identify their personal response to conflict
• Describe the difference between compromise and collaboration
• Demonstrate the steps in conflict resolution

Program Objectives

This one-day program will provide participants with a strategy to help young people work out interpersonal conflicts without resorting to violence. Activities include a set of conflict resolution steps to practice and an opportunity for participants to examine their own personal response to conflict. Techniques include a self assessment survey, presentation, discussion, demonstration, role play, and practice. All participants will be tested with written and competency based tests in order to apply for re-certification.

Participants who successfully complete the update receive a Conflict Resolution reference manual, an activity guide, student workbook, and a CD containing the PowerPoint™ presentation used during the training.

Eligibility is restricted: This update is only open to qualified applicants who have successfully completed both updates: "Designing Refresher Training" and "The Post-Crisis Response Training".

Voice- Involving students in "the what" and "the how" of learning and equipping them to be stewards of their own education.
Co-creation- Guiding students to identify the challenges and concepts they want to explore and outline the actions they will take.
Social construction- Having students work with others to theorize, pursue common goals, build products, and generate performances.
Self-discovery- Teaching students to reflect on their own developing skills and knowledge so they will acquire new understandings of themselves and how they learn.

Join us for this exciting online book study - Everyone is welcome!
