Connect, collaborate, and participate in a true Professional Learning Community!

What is SBIRT?
SBIRT offers an efficient, evidence-based, and comprehensive service to address selected behavioral health concerns among adolescents. The service begins with administering a standardized Screening instrument.  For students who show moderate or high risk results, a Brief Intervention (BI) is conducted. The BI is delivered with motivational interviewing and is protocol-guided. For those students who show high risk concerns and who do not respond to the BI, a Referral to Treatment may be initiated.

Why SBIRT in Schools?

  • Evidence-based for addressing student alcohol/drug involvement and evidence-informed for addressing a range of other behavioral concerns, including attendance, classroom behavior, and mental health
  • Student-centered and strength-based
  • Teens rate the service with high levels of satisfaction
  • Provides a Tier II and Tier III practice with PBIS
  • Response-to-Intervention can be ascertained by using baseline and follow-up screening results

Training Description

  • A requirement of registration is to complete: 1. A Pre-training Reading Assignment, and 2. An initial Implementation Plan

Active Students Learn Better with Active Schools Core 4
According to the CDC, students who are physically active tend to have better grades, school attendance, cognitive performance (e.g., memory) and classroom behaviors (e.g., on-task behavior). CDC recommends 60 minutes of physical activity each day. However, this is not always the case in school. Too often students are sedentary the majority of their day. This workshop will provide the tools necessary for the implementation of a comprehensive physical activity program (CSPAP) that multiple national organizations, including SHAPE America and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommend developing and implementing.

Wisconsin has developed its own very successful comprehensive program called Active Schools: Core 4 This program is tailored to meet the needs of your school/district. Learn the strategies and help your students meet their need of 60 minutes of activity a day and boost their academic performance without disrupting the current school schedule.

Who should attend this training?
We recommend a team of 2 or more consisting of: Administrators, Curriculum Coordinators, School Board Members, Classroom Teachers, Physical Education Teachers, Health Educators, District Wellness Committee Members, Parents, PBIS Team Members, School Nurses, Before/After School Coordinators, Community Center Wellness Coordinators and Community Education Coordinators.

Active Students Learn Better with Active Schools Core 4
According to the CDC, students who are physically active tend to have better grades, school attendance, cognitive performance (e.g., memory) and classroom behaviors (e.g., on-task behavior). CDC recommends 60 minutes of physical activity each day. However, this is not always the case in school. Too often students are sedentary the majority of their day. This workshop will provide the tools necessary for the implementation of a comprehensive physical activity program (CSPAP) that multiple national organizations, including SHAPE America and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommend developing and implementing.

Wisconsin has developed its own very successful comprehensive program called Active Schools: Core 4 This program is tailored to meet the needs of your school/district. Learn the strategies and help your students meet their need of 60 minutes of activity a day and boost their academic performance without disrupting the current school schedule.

Who should attend this training?
We recommend a team of 2 or more consisting of: Administrators, Curriculum Coordinators, School Board Members, Classroom Teachers, Physical Education Teachers, Health Educators, District Wellness Committee Members, Parents, PBIS Team Members, School Nurses, Before/After School Coordinators, Community Center Wellness Coordinators and Community Education Coordinators.

The training will cover some of the new drugs threat along with other alarming activities of this new generation and what can be done.

Jason Weber, Community Liaison Officer for the Town of Menasha Police Department and nationally recognized drug prevention speaker will be presenting. Jason initiated a coalition that developed a pharmaceutical abuse prevention toolkit called “Good Drugs Gone Bad.” He presented at seminars and distributed the toolkit to over 3,000 people in health care, law enforcement, and education fields in the Midwest and New England states. This program was one of nine that was highlighted at the 2011 SAMHSA Service to Science Academy.


Deputy Pete Ehlert of the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office will focus on why our children are at risk when using social media and the Internet. Deputy Elhert will show how easy it is for a predator to target our kids and the methods they use. Sexting laws will be broken down and you will learn why our children engage in this behavior and don’t think it’s a big deal. Popular apps among youth in our community will also be covered and they will show you how kids get in trouble using these apps. Lastly, he will cover what you can do to help keep our kids safe.

Pete has been a Deputy Sheriff for 15 years with the last thirteen at the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office. He has served in many capacities while working for the Sheriff’s Office including being assigned to the corrections, patrol, GPS and Transport Division, and currently serves as the Community Programs Coordinator for the Sheriff’s Office. Pete also is the DARE Officer for Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office and teaches in 10 schools throughout the County and reaches approximately 750 students per year.

Participants will learn about the new drug and Internet trends facing our youth and communities, and best practices from other communities/schools in combating these threats.

Do you know students who have a story to tell? This is a training for adult facilitators to go back and use with individual or small groups of high school students.

Honest, Open, Proud: To Eliminate the Stigma of Mental Illness is a workbook for small group discussion or personal use. It helps students look at the story they have been telling themselves, discern helpful and hurtful self-attitudes, and analyze the pros and cons of disclosing in different settings to different people. Lastly, it guides them to draft their own story into a format that discloses not only the pain of mental health challenges but also the internal and external resources discovered and used to live life in the way they choose.

What is SBIRT?
SBIRT offers an efficient, evidence-based, and comprehensive service to address selected behavioral health concerns among adolescents. The service begins with administering a standardized Screening instrument.  For students who show moderate or high risk results, a Brief Intervention (BI) is conducted. The BI is delivered with motivational interviewing and is protocol-guided.  For those students who show high risk concerns and who do not respond to the BI, a Referral to Treatment may be initiated.

Why SBIRT in Schools?

  • Evidence-based for addressing student alcohol/drug involvement and evidence-informed for addressing a range of other behavioral concerns, including attendance, classroom behavior, and mental health
  • Student-centered and strength-based
  • Teens rate the service with high levels of satisfaction
  • Provides a Tier II and Tier III practice with PBIS
  • Response-to-Intervention can be ascertained by using baseline and follow-up screening results

Training Description

  • A requirement of registration is to complete: 1. A Pre-training Reading Assignment, and 2. An initial Implementation Plan
    Both are available at: www.wishschools.org/resources/schoolsbirt.cfm
  • The school implementation plan must be submitted one week prior to training to: Tracy Herlitzke, therlitzke@cesa4.org
  • Initial Training  (Day 1) — Overview of SBIRT, introduction to the requisite skills (Motivational Interviewing), and practice on delivering protocol-guided Brief Intervention services.  Audio tape delivery of Brief Intervention.
  • Adopt SBIRT Into Practice and Continue Implementation Planning — Staff deliver SBIRT services and track initial implementation.  Staff meet with student services leadership to complete Implementation Plan.
  • Follow-up Training  (Day 2) — Staff receive individualized feedback from fidelity review of audiotape.  Continue skill building, practice delivering SBIRT, and refining Implementation Plan.
  • Implementation Coaching — Staff will participate in monthly implementation coaching calls.

Traumatized youth often react to frustrations with negative or explosive behaviors that are difficult to anticipate and manage in the classroom. If you’ve found yourself saying, “I didn’t see that coming,” or “They just blew up on me for no reason,” then this workshop will help. Through lecture, video and small group discussion, our full-day workshop will teach psychoeducation, behavioral prevention and early intervention skills for educators in the classroom. You will practice prevention and de-escalation strategies focused on language, body posture, tone of voice and negotiation to help you and your students feel emotionally safer so they can learn.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understand how the “brain’s danger alarm” works and how to identify trauma triggers and re-enactment cycles in the classroom. (Tier 1)
  2. Learn how to use psychoeducation materials classroom-wide to provide language and strategies to manage emotional distress. (Tier 1)
  3. Learn and practice “just-in-time” skills and strategies to reduce the escalation of student negative emotional behaviors. (Tier 2/3)
  4. Create an intervention plan specific to a trauma (Tier 3)
  5. Integrate trauma-model interventions with the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. (Tier 1)
  6. Learn how to practice and implement mindfulness activities to improve student focus and decrease reactive emotions (Tier 1)

TARGET AUDIENCE: Teachers, administrators, support staff, and pupil services.

Let's Get Started is a four-part series aimed at all PK-12 educators and leaders interested in designing curriculum and instruction that will meet the needs of all learners in a classroom or school.

This event is priced to encourage team participation and the cost includes all four sessions, materials, and the 2nd edition of Katie Novak's book, UDL Now!

Traumatized youth often react to frustrations with negative or explosive behaviors that are difficult to anticipate and manage in the classroom. If you’ve found yourself saying, “I didn’t see that coming,” or “They just blew up on me for no reason,” then this workshop will help. Through lecture, video and small group discussion, our full-day workshop will teach psychoeducation, behavioral prevention and early intervention skills for educators in the classroom. You will practice prevention and de-escalation strategies focused on language, body posture, tone of voice and negotiation to help you and your students feel emotionally safer so they can learn.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understand how the “brain’s danger alarm” works and how to identify trauma triggers and re-enactment cycles in the classroom. (Tier 1)
  2. Learn how to use psychoeducation materials classroom-wide to provide language and strategies to manage emotional distress. (Tier 1)
  3. Learn and practice “just-in-time” skills and strategies to reduce the escalation of student negative emotional behaviors. (Tier 2/3)
  4. Create an intervention plan specific to a trauma (Tier 3)
  5. Integrate trauma-model interventions with the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. (Tier 1)
  6. Learn how to practice and implement mindfulness activities to improve student focus and decrease reactive emotions (Tier 1)

TARGET AUDIENCE: Teachers, administrators, support staff, and pupil services.

What is SBIRT?
SBIRT offers an efficient, evidence-based, and comprehensive service to address selected behavioral health concerns among adolescents. The service begins with administering a standardized Screening instrument.  For students who show moderate or high risk results, a Brief Intervention (BI) is conducted. The BI is delivered with motivational interviewing and is protocol-guided. For those students who show high risk concerns and who do not respond to the BI, a Referral to Treatment may be initiated.

Why SBIRT in Schools?

  • Evidence-based for addressing student alcohol/drug involvement and evidence-informed for addressing a range of other behavioral concerns, including attendance, classroom behavior, and mental health
  • Student-centered and strength-based
  • Teens rate the service with high levels of satisfaction
  • Provides a Tier II and Tier III practice with PBIS
  • Response-to-Intervention can be ascertained by using baseline and follow-up screening results

Training Description

  • A requirement of registration is to complete: 1. A Pre-training Reading Assignment, and 2. An initial Implementation Plan
    Both are available at: www.wishschools.org/resources/schoolsbirt.cfm
  • The school implementation plan must be submitted one week prior to training to: Tracy Herlitzke, therlitzke@cesa4.org
  • Initial Training  (Day 1) — Overview of SBIRT, introduction to the requisite skills (Motivational Interviewing), and practice on delivering protocol-guided Brief Intervention services.  Audio tape delivery of Brief Intervention.
  • Adopt SBIRT Into Practice and Continue Implementation Planning — Staff deliver SBIRT services and track initial implementation.  Staff meet with student services leadership to complete Implementation Plan.
  • Follow-up Training  (Day 2) — Staff receive individualized feedback from fidelity review of audiotape.  Continue skill building, practice delivering SBIRT, and refining Implementation Plan.
  • Implementation Coaching — Staff will participate in monthly implementation coaching calls.

Sondrol - Wisconsin NBCT Trainer).  CESA #4 is offering an eight-day series for teachers seeking to become a NBCT. 

The series includes two anchor workshops integral to the NBCT process.  The "Plunge" workshop (on November 4, 2017) explores in detail the four components of the Boards and the "Roll up your Sleeves" workshop  (on April 7, 2018) provides in-depth preparation for Component One: The Assessment Center for each candidate.  The remaining six days are to provide on-site support with a NBCT trainer for candidates to write, revise, review, and immerse themselves in the various components for the Boards. 

Teachers may register for the "Plunge" and "Roll up your Sleeves" workshops separately at $150/person per event or the entire series with support for $375.  (See the registration for 11/4 and/or 4/7 for specific details on each of these anchor workshops.)   Teachers must currently hold a Professional Educators license and teach in one of these content areas:  Art, CTE, English as a New Language, ELA,  Exceptional Needs Generalist, Generalist (a.k.a.

NBCT: Plunge Workshop - November 4, 2017 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=18719&memberid=630 The Plunge Workshop is an extremely powerful, full day workshop recommended before or during the early stages of National Board Certification Candidacy.  The presentation is divided into four distinctive sections- one for each of the four components required for national board certification. 

Why is enrolling in Plunge, crucial?  Simply stated, National Board Certification is an unrelentingly arduous process requiring candidates understand precisely what they need to display in their practice and how to correctly write about it. Although candidates are provided ample instructions, the underlying philosophy required to certify, is not overtly given. 

Why is this?  National Boards believes part of the certification process is investigatory in nature.  Plunge is completely committed to assisting candidates explore, cipher and apply this somewhat “hidden” agenda to their practice and certification process.  Plunge is the gold standard for educators wanting to deepen their practice and seek this elite certification. 

Who Should Attend?  Because National Board of Professional Teaching Standards is committed to honoring and improving teacher practice across the nation, Plunge is appropriate for any professional educator whose career impacts the learning of classroom students.  This list includes and is not limited to:  NBCT candidates; Team teachers wanting to unify their practices; Educational leaders seeking a solid professional development opportunity for teachers; Beginning teachers seeking support; Teacher who are considering national board candidacy. 

What are the clear-cut objectives for Plunge?  Offer candidates a solid introduction to each of the four components required for certification

  • Attendees will engage in strategic activities to uncover the underlying agenda national boards requires for certification; clear discussion of these requirements will follow
  • Attendees will be exposed to the complete array of content and pedagogical professional standards, targeted by the nation’s leading educators
  • Attendees will have ample opportunity to ask clarifying questions about candidacy and the narrative-scholarly writing matrix required throughout the components

Participants should bring their own laptop or device.

Event cost $150

In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?

Day 2—Participants will have an understanding of the “practices” in Restorative Practice and how they fit into a continuum (think triangle in PBIS) —Types of Restorative Practice: Reintegration following suspensions, Class meetings, Circles, Conferencing, Truancy mediation, Bullying

PRESENTERS:

  • Christine Kleiman  Program Director, Safe and Healthy Schools Department at CESA #7, Regional Coordinator for Wisconsin Safe and Healthy Schools Center, PBIS Coach and Trainer, and Restorative Practice Trainer.
  • Patricia Kexel  Retired Language Arts teacher and Middle School Guidance Counselor, presently Restorative Practices Trainer and co-founder of Creating Connections. Herb Kohl Fellowship Recipient in 2006

This workshop is not intended to train all school staff, but prepares teams of pupil services staff, health educators, and administrators to plan,prevent, and intervene at their schools. Action planning is integrated into all phases of the training program. A model workshop for all school staff is provided.

What do Creative Commons licenses allow for authors of teacher-created materials? What impact can OER (Open Education Resources) have on educator creativity, flexibility, and innovation?

This workshop is especially directed to districts seeking to incorporate cost-saving OER content into learning management systems (LMSs) for consistently relevant and high-quality resources to support district-approved curriculum efforts. Participants are encouraged to bring teacher-created content to contribute to the WISELearn digital content collection in OER Commons. Educators, curriculum directors across all grade levels and all content areas are encouraged to attend. Valuable resources to share back in districts will be provided to all attendees.

This event is priced to encourage team participation and the cost includes all four sessions, materials, and the 2nd edition of Katie Novak's book, UDL Now!

Connect, collaborate, and participate in a true Professional Learning Community!

$100 per individual per event; light breakfast and lunch provided.  $300 per individual registering for all four dates.

In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?

Day 2—Participants will have an understanding of the “practices” in Restorative Practice and how they fit into a continuum (think triangle in PBIS) —Types of Restorative Practice: Reintegration following suspensions, Class meetings, Circles, Conferencing, Truancy mediation, Bullying

PRESENTERS:

  • Christine Kleiman  Program Director, Safe and Healthy Schools Department at CESA #7, Regional Coordinator for Wisconsin Safe and Healthy Schools Center, PBIS Coach and Trainer, and Restorative Practice Trainer.
  • Patricia Kexel  Retired Language Arts teacher and Middle School Guidance Counselor, presently Restorative Practices Trainer and co-founder of Creating Connections. Herb Kohl Fellowship Recipient in 2006

In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?

Day 2—Participants will have an understanding of the “practices” in Restorative Practice and how they fit into a continuum (think triangle in PBIS) —Types of Restorative Practice: Reintegration following suspensions, Class meetings, Circles, Conferencing, Truancy mediation, Bullying

Traumatized youth often react to frustrations with negative or explosive behaviors that are difficult to anticipate and manage in the classroom. If you’ve found yourself saying, “I didn’t see that coming,” or “They just blew up on me for no reason,” then this workshop will help. Through lecture, video and small group discussion, our full-day workshop will teach psychoeducation, behavioral prevention and early intervention skills for educators in the classroom. You will practice prevention and de-escalation strategies focused on language, body posture, tone of voice and negotiation to help you and your students feel emotionally safer so they can learn.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understand how the “brain’s danger alarm” works and how to identify trauma triggers and re-enactment cycles in the classroom. (Tier 1)
  2. Learn how to use psychoeducation materials classroom-wide to provide language and strategies to manage emotional distress. (Tier 1)
  3. Learn and practice “just-in-time” skills and strategies to reduce the escalation of student negative emotional behaviors. (Tier 2/3)
  4. Create an intervention plan specific to a trauma (Tier 3)
  5. Integrate trauma-model interventions with the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. (Tier 1)
  6. Learn how to practice and implement mindfulness activities to improve student focus and decrease reactive emotions (Tier 1)

TARGET AUDIENCE: Teachers, administrators, support staff, and pupil services.

Let's Get Started is a four-part series aimed at all PK-12 educators and leaders interested in designing curriculum and instruction that will meet the needs of all learners in a classroom or school.

Do you know students who have a story to tell? This is a training for adult facilitators to go back and use with individual or small groups of high school students.

Honest, Open, Proud: To Eliminate the Stigma of Mental Illness is a workbook for small group discussion or personal use. It helps students look at the story they have been telling themselves, discern helpful and hurtful self-attitudes, and analyze the pros and cons of disclosing in different settings to different people. Lastly, it guides them to draft their own story into a format that discloses not only the pain of mental health challenges but also the internal and external resources discovered and used to live life in the way they choose.

We'll come together in early August for some preliminary work. Eric will lead the learning by joining us at CESA #4 for a full day in October and then connecting with us digitally for 2 hour sessions across the remainder of the year. The Leadership Academy is open to leaders from the district level down to the school level at a cost of $100 (made possible by a grant from DPI) which covers all events and materials. Eric says that district admin teams may find it beneficial to attend together, but this is certainly not required.

What is SBIRT?
SBIRT offers an efficient, evidence-based, and comprehensive service to address selected behavioral health concerns among adolescents. The service begins with administering a standardized Screening instrument.  For students who show moderate or high risk results, a Brief Intervention (BI) is conducted. The BI is delivered with motivational interviewing and is protocol-guided.  For those students who show high risk concerns and who do not respond to the BI, a Referral to Treatment may be initiated.

Why SBIRT in Schools?

  • Evidence-based for addressing student alcohol/drug involvement and evidence-informed for addressing a range of other behavioral concerns, including attendance, classroom behavior, and mental health
  • Student-centered and strength-based
  • Teens rate the service with high levels of satisfaction
  • Provides a Tier II and Tier III practice with PBIS
  • Response-to-Intervention can be ascertained by using baseline and follow-up screening results

Do you know students who have a story to tell? This is a training for adult facilitators to go back and use with individual or small groups of high school students.

Honest, Open, Proud: To Eliminate the Stigma of Mental Illness is a workbook for small group discussion or personal use. It helps students look at the story they have been telling themselves, discern helpful and hurtful self-attitudes, and analyze the pros and cons of disclosing in different settings to different people. Lastly, it guides them to draft their own story into a format that discloses not only the pain of mental health challenges but also the internal and external resources discovered and used to live life in the way they choose.

In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?

Day 2—Participants will have an understanding of the “practices” in Restorative Practice and how they fit into a continuum (think triangle in PBIS) —Types of Restorative Practice: Reintegration following suspensions, Class meetings, Circles, Conferencing, Truancy mediation, Bullying

PRESENTERS:

  • Christine Kleiman  Program Director, Safe and Healthy Schools Department at CESA #7, Regional Coordinator for Wisconsin Safe and Healthy Schools Center, PBIS Coach and Trainer, and Restorative Practice Trainer.
  • Patricia Kexel  Retired Language Arts teacher and Middle School Guidance Counselor, presently Restorative Practices Trainer and co-founder of Creating Connections. Herb Kohl Fellowship Recipient in 2006

Step Outside and Into Engagement: Outdoor Classroom Leadership - March 15, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=18133&memberid=630 Harness the benefits of the most interactive instruction possible: learning on school grounds, outside the four walls of the classroom. Conducting class outside offers many academic, social and emotional benefits for students. Studies link outdoor learning to improvement in attitudes toward school, increased student achievement, higher attendance, increased social development, and physical health benefits. Learning outdoors is even linked to a reduction of ADHD and ADD symptoms among some students. This workshop is designed to provide K-12 teachers with training in conducting class outside on any type of school grounds in order to engage and inspire students in learning. Guidelines, rules, safety considerations, resources and handouts will be provided so teachers have everything they need to lead confidently. Classroom management practices that fit within existing PBIS models and are specific to the outdoors will be discussed. The workshop will include time for collaboration and lesson planning, and a variety of ready-to-use activities will be supplied so teachers can implement outdoor learning right away.

Graduate credit through UW-Stevens Point available. Contact the WCEE at WCEE@uwsp.edu or 715-346-4818 for information on tuition costs and registration.

Please see the attached flyer for more information.

2017-2018 Early Childhood Network - April 5, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=17709&memberid=630 Held at: CESA #4 Thu, 05 Apr 2018 16:00:00 National Board Certified Teacher Co-Hort Support Series - April 7, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=18718&memberid=630 Are you interested in becoming a National Board Certified Teacher?  There are many benefits to becoming a NBCT including an annual stipend from the state, possible salary advancement from your district, in-depth understanding of pedagogy related to your content area, and "the best professional development I have ever been a part of" (W. Sondrol - Wisconsin NBCT Trainer).  CESA #4 is offering an eight-day series for teachers seeking to become a NBCT. 

The series includes two anchor workshops integral to the NBCT process.  The "Plunge" workshop (on November 4, 2017) explores in detail the four components of the Boards and the "Roll up your Sleeves" workshop  (on April 7, 2018) provides in-depth preparation for Component One: The Assessment Center for each candidate.  The remaining six days are to provide on-site support with a NBCT trainer for candidates to write, revise, review, and immerse themselves in the various components for the Boards. 

Teachers may register for the "Plunge" and "Roll up your Sleeves" workshops separately at $150/person per event or the entire series with support for $375.  (See the registration for 11/4 and/or 4/7 for specific details on each of these anchor workshops.)   Teachers must currently hold a Professional Educators license and teach in one of these content areas:  Art, CTE, English as a New Language, ELA,  Exceptional Needs Generalist, Generalist (a.k.a. Early Childhood or Elementary Classroom Teacher), Health, Library Media, Literacy - Reading,  Mathematics, Music, PE, School Counseling, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages.  http://www.boardcertifiedteachers.org/certificate-areas

NBCT: Roll Up Your Sleeves Workshop - April 7, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=18726&memberid=630 The Component One assessment is worth 40% o a candidate’s total score.  Roll Up Your Sleeves, full-day workshop, actively engages attendees in the preparation process.  This is a highly interactive day, offering candidates Wisconsin’s first, hands-on guidance to Component One. 

Why enrolling in Roll Up Your Sleeves is Crucial:  Component One, the assessment center testing, encompasses the largest portion of certification percentage value, yet mentors/programs traditionally offer the least skilled preparation for its onset.  It is not unusual for candidates to become engrossed in the preparation of the other three scholarly components.  Preparation for Component One is neglected.   Taken without dedication to the skill sets required to reveal each candidate’s best practices, the assessment center scores are reflective.   Roll Up Your Sleeves Workshop commits an entire day to guiding candidates towards recognizing and actually initiating development of those skills sets.

Who Should Attend:  The Component One Assessment Center may be taken during the summer months window, at any point in a candidate’s process.  There are benefits and drawbacks to initiating or ending candidacy process with Component One.  Roll Up Your Sleeves is best taken between four to six weeks prior to completing this 40% vlued component.  Potential attendees are:

  • NBCT candidates at any stage, preparing for Component One
  • NBCT mentors seeking improved practice
  • Teachers who are considering national board candidacy 

What are the clear-cut objectives for Roll Up Your Sleeves? 1) Candidates will engage in four, Component One preparation activities, 2) Candidates will leave with a comprehensive understanding of how to intelligently continue Component One preparation.

Participants should bring their own laptop or device.

Event cost $150

The Leadership Academy is open to leaders from the district level down to the school level at a cost of $100 (made possible by a grant from DPI) which covers all events and materials. Eric says that district admin teams may find it beneficial to attend together, but this is certainly not required.

Sondrol - Wisconsin NBCT Trainer).  CESA #4 is offering an eight-day series for teachers seeking to become a NBCT. 

The series includes two anchor workshops integral to the NBCT process.  The "Plunge" workshop (on November 4, 2017) explores in detail the four components of the Boards and the "Roll up your Sleeves" workshop  (on April 7, 2018) provides in-depth preparation for Component One: The Assessment Center for each candidate.  The remaining six days are to provide on-site support with a NBCT trainer for candidates to write, revise, review, and immerse themselves in the various components for the Boards. 

Teachers may register for the "Plunge" and "Roll up your Sleeves" workshops separately at $150/person per event or the entire series with support for $375.  (See the registration for 11/4 and/or 4/7 for specific details on each of these anchor workshops.)   Teachers must currently hold a Professional Educators license and teach in one of these content areas:  Art, CTE, English as a New Language, ELA,  Exceptional Needs Generalist, Generalist (a.k.a. Early Childhood or Elementary Classroom Teacher), Health, Library Media, Literacy - Reading,  Mathematics, Music, PE, School Counseling, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages.  http://www.boardcertifiedteachers.org/certificate-areas

Professional Learning Network Series #4 - May 8, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=18093&memberid=630 Please register separately for each Professional Learning Network event.  All teachers are invited to attend to create a Professional Learning Network outside of district boundaries.  The ideal audience is teachers that are singletons within schools or districts that don't have a "best fit" PLC team in-district.  For instance, if you are the only art teacher in your district, connect and collaborate with other art teachers.  If you are the high school music director, plan with other musically minded individuals.  If you are the Title I teacher for your school, meet with other Title I teachers to talk about best practice and intervention strategies.  

Connect, collaborate, and participate in a true Professional Learning Community!

$100 per individual per event; light breakfast and lunch provided.  $300 per individual registering for all four dates.
Free to teachers from districts purchasing #219 Level 1B services.  Price adjustments will be made at time of billing.

In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?
