Commonalities Across Districts: Educator Training
Establishing a sustainable system of supports relies on stakeholders working together and holding each other accountable toward a shared goal of success for every learner.
Collaboration in an equitable multi-level system of supports occurs through intentionally designed linked implementation teams and shared goals within and across teams. Each team oversees implementation and gauges effectiveness of particular aspects of the system. For example, building leadership teams are concerned with system-level excellence and equity, whereas learner problem-solving teams focus on planning and monitoring support for individual learners. A process for fluid structure and regular flow of information among and across teams helps the separate parts of the system work in unison.
The complex work of improving outcomes for all and eliminating inequities depends on authentic dialogue, learning, and planning among learners, staff, families, and the community. Each partner plays an important role in collaborating for learner success, as described below.
