CESA #4 Professional Development Events http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/events_rss.cfm?detailid=185800 CESA #4 Professional Development Events en-us YA Day of Learning 2018 - June 21, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=19760&memberid=630 Held at: CESA #4 Thu, 21 Jun 2018 09:00:00 Washburn Academy: Beyond Behavior Management-Empowering Teachers to Reach ALL Students - June 25, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=20326&memberid=630 Whenever I’ve taught classes about students with special needs, the resounding reaction from regular education teachers has been, “But these are great strategies for ALL students.”  How do we take what we know from special education and connect with kids who may not be identified with a disability but still have some of the same needs? This question is at the heart of why schools are focusing on school wide proactive behavior intervention and supports (PBIS).  The most effective educators understand that preventing behaviors and empowering students to change their behavior is essential in creating classroom community and increasing academic achievement.

This course will pull information from what we know about how anxiety, depression, attention difficulties, hyperactivity, and social disorders and apply it to your daily classroom practice.  Resources are limited and the best way to increase the success of students who are struggling is to empower the teachers who spend the most time with them. The majority of challenging behaviors come from a skill deficit or an unmet need.  This class will help you identify those needs in a proactive way so you can connect with the student and identify strategies that are more likely to be successful.

Is that usually the case? A large percentage of our time is not spent in instruction.  Using a discipline model that allows the student to be accountable is critical. Love and Logic is a philosophy of teaching children which allows adults to be happier, empowered, and more skilled in the interactions with children. Love allows children to grow through their mistakes. Logic allows children to live with the consequences of their choices. Love and Logic is a way of working with children that puts teachers back in control, teaches children to be responsible, and prepares young people to live in the real world, with its many choices and consequences.

We’ll take an indepth look at how to truly build non-judgmental relationships with kids, 9 essential skills for the classroom, 21 methods to mold behaviors, the connect to PBIS, how to take better care of ourselves during those tough times, and even how to crave Mondays again!

How can we flip the stigma of "I hate Mondays" on its ear?  How do we reach kids that are seemingly unreachable? How can we unlock the treasure of achievement in your students?  Join me in taking a deeper look at the connection between what we do as an adult and the impact on kids. Let's learn why focusing on character and personal responsibility can form the foundation of lasting achievement.  Let us discover the mindset to view Mondays as our favorite day of the week.

  • Examine the importance and link between Teaching with Love and Logic and creating a climate and culture that increases student motivation and success.
  • Discover how the Love and Logic strategies allow for consistent structure, expectations, routines, and guidelines.
  • Explore the necessity of meeting the needs of students (physical, social, emotional, and mental).?

More standards? You bet! Does this mean it's "one more thing?" Not necessarily. Let's take a look at the standards up close and personal and then spend some time connecting them to what we are already doing with classroom instruction in any content area (and identify those gap areas, too). This workshop will give participants a deeper dive into both the CS and ITL Standards as well as access to ready-to-use resources to share with district staff meetings to build awareness and understanding of how these standards can connect and enhance classroom instruction already in place. We will explore crosswalks, implementation strategies, and instructional materials that can be leveraged to meet these standards and provide opportunities for student profiencies in skills critical in today's workforce. This workshop is best suited for curriculum directors, technology leaders, classroom educators responsible specifically for computer science or digital literacy instruction but is applicable to any content area. This is a train-the-trainer model workshop and resources acquired are intended to be redistributed in districts. 

Cost to attend: $25 per person

Andrew Bake (Valley View Elementary, Ashwaubenon School District), Jessica Beem (West Middleton Elementary, Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District), Melanie Meister (Arboretum and Heritage Elementary Schools, Waunakee Area School District)

In order to effectively and efficiently serve students receiving Tier 2 supports, heathy use of data is critical. This session will discuss the role of the Tier 2 team in monitoring individual and aggregate student outcome, progress monitoring, and fidelity data to determine adjustments needed. Schools will highlight successes and learnings over time in these areas.

Strengthening Relationships to Strengthen Outcomes

Ali Hearn

The PBIS framework provides an opportunity to systematically make the process of strengthening relationships more explicit.  With the ability to increase the dosage of “relationship building” throughout the triangle, we are better equipped to help support ALL of our youth including the most vulnerable populations.  This session will explore the importance of relationships, how implementing PBIS with fidelity can increase the quantity and quality of student/teacher relationships, and how to increase dosage as needs of youth increase.  Participants will leave with specific examples of application at all three tiers, and considerations for using data to measure fidelity of implementation and student outcomes.

Strand = Tier 1 Systems Practices, Data Based Decision Making

TFI Connection = Tier 1 Subscale: Implementation, Evaluation Item: 1.6, 1.7, 1.10, 1.14

Journey to the Center of the Framework: Focusing on Equitable Systems to Support All

Are your current systems & practices getting in the way of supporting all students so that they are college & career ready? Changing systems and practices involves taking people on a journey that changes how they think, what they believe and how they interact. In this session, participants will learn how to create safe and supportive environments through discussion and application of key features of the WI Framework for Equitable Multi-Level Systems of Supports and The Model to Inform Culturally Responsive Practices.

9:00am - 3:30pm (Registration 8:30am)

This conference is designed to aid school business office staff handling payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable and benefit administration while providing networking time (and door prizes!)
Only $75 per person!  
(includes light breakfast, materials, and lunch)

Itinerary
8:30-9:00am Registration and light breakfast
9:00-9:20am Welcome
9:30-10:20am
(Session #1)

CHOICE A: WISEStaff
The WISEstaff session will be an overview for school district personnel responsible for the set-up and management of WISEid for staff members and WISEdata. The 2018-19 WISEstaff collection will open in September. Come join other districts in the area as we walk through Secure Home, ASM, WISEidand WISEstaff.

CHOICE B: Financial Audit
Why do we need an audit every year? What documents should I have prepared before the auditors arrive? What's an internal control? What are auditor "red flags"? This session will talk about answers to all of these questions and more...more than you ever wanted to know about your fiscal audit!

10:30-11:20am
(Session #2)
CHOICE A: WISEGrants
This session will provide participants with an overview of the WISEgrants federal grants management platform with information on the budget, claiming, and reporting functionality within the system. The presentation will include frequently-asked questions and useful technical assistance on new and existing features and will cover program-specific news and updates that relate to federal grants management in WISEgrants.
CHOICE B: Leaves of Absence in Worker’s Compensation, Employment Law & How to Effectively Use Them
This session will focus on the leaves available to employees under FMLA, ADA, worker’s compensation, and district policies. The session will outline and highlight the interplay and overlap of the different leaves and how management personnel should respond to requests for leaves of absence in different situations.
11:30-12:30pm Lunch

12:40-1:30pm (Session #3)

CHOICE A: Keeping your Employee Information Up-To-Date in the WRS
It is very important for employers to make sure employee information reported to the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) is accurate and up to date. Not only will it keep employers from having extra work in adjustments and corrections, but it will ensure a smooth Annual Reconciliation. In this session, you will learn the different tools available to assist you throughout the year and through the Annual Reconciliation process.
CHOICE B: WUFAR Session
All LEAs in Wisconsin, including independent charter schools, must submit financial reports and grant budgets and claims to DPI using the Department's established account coding system. This section will progress from the basics of the Wisconsin Uniform Financial Accounting Requirements (WUFAR) into more in-depth practical scenarios around WUFAR as utilized within WISEgrants and other federal grant reporting. Business office staff will learn what pieces matter to the program area and how having this knowledge, along with communication between the program and business office, will improve the LEA’s management of federal funds.
1:40-2:30pm (Session #4) CHOICE A: 2018-19 School Level Expenditure Reporting Requirements Under ESSA
Local Education Agencies (LEAs) will be required to report per-pupil expenditures, including actual personnel and non-personnel expenditures, for each school and each LEA. The per-pupil expenditures will be disaggregated by two fund sources: 1) Federal; and 2) a combined State and Local. This session will provide: 1) additional details related to this new 2018-19 school level reporting requirement; and 2) an opportunity for participants to provide feedback regarding the reporting of these actual 2018-19 school year per-pupil expenditures.
CHOICE B: Web Tools, Tips, and Tricks for Bookkeepers & Payroll Professionals
This session will focus on web tools that make you more organized and efficient at your job. Vetting all the thousands of business apps that are now available can be time-consuming. Also, training yourself can be difficult as well. It is our goal in this session to show tools that are practical for school business offices and give you some examples of how they can be put to use. Examples include Google Apps, DocuSign, Trello, TinyScan and more.
2:40-3:20pm (Session #5) CHOICE A: Health Benefits Compliance Update
The focus of this presentation will be on ACA mandates, reporting and understanding COBRA qualifying events for your health plan benefits. In addition, we will discuss a strategic approach to control healthcare costs and premiums.
CHOICE B: AP & 1099's
Accounts Payables and 1099s can be routine and regular tasks in the business office. In this session, we will brainstorm weekly accounts payable efficiencies and year-end accounts payables considerations. The presentation will conclude with a 1099 overview and discussion. Come ready to learn and ready to possibly share some of your expertise with others!
3:20-3:30pm Wrap-up, Door Prizes, Evals

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and
emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and
emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

Presenter:
Beth A. Herman, MSE
School Mental Health Training Consultant

Step Outside and Into Engagement: Outdoor Classroom Leadership - October 24, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=20642&memberid=630 CESA #4 is excited once again to partner with The Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education in providing a variety of professional learning opportunities to enhance the integration of environmental education into existing curricula across all content disciplines. Each workshop utilizes standards-based activities to advance place-based resources to engage learners. Each workshops 7 hours and will include collaboration and curriculum planning time. All workshop participants will receive ready-to-use hands-on lesson and numerous supporting resources. Teachers will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education upon successful completion of each workshop. All workshops support schools in their Green and Healthy Schools Wisconsin initiatives. One credit is available for attending two workshops (one credit in the fall and one credit in the spring). Substitute reimbursements are also available for up to $125.

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.

Cost: $150 per person (Districts with #310 tech seats may use "1" seat per person to cover the registration fee. Please indicate this in the registration notes.)

2018-2019 Early Childhood Network - October 25, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=20804&memberid=630 What children ask, say, or do about their identities and differences and the differences of others, are the wonderful "teachable moments" of anti-bias education.  How we as educators respond to these opportunities is instrumental in helping young children navigate the complex issues of identity, diversity, prejudice, and power in their daily lives.

 In addition to timely networking topics and updates, the 2018-19 Early Childhood Network series will explore principles of anti-bias education and effective classroom strategies aimed at helping young children build social-emotional competency, make families feel welcome and nurture children's' development of positive self-identity. 

This series is designed to equip early educators to confidently, powerfully and competently responding to issues of diversity and elevate their capacity for helping young children make sense of the confusing and often emotionally charged messages they receive about themselves and others.

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

2018-2019 Early Childhood Network - December 6, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=20804&memberid=630 What children ask, say, or do about their identities and differences and the differences of others, are the wonderful "teachable moments" of anti-bias education.  How we as educators respond to these opportunities is instrumental in helping young children navigate the complex issues of identity, diversity, prejudice, and power in their daily lives.

 In addition to timely networking topics and updates, the 2018-19 Early Childhood Network series will explore principles of anti-bias education and effective classroom strategies aimed at helping young children build social-emotional competency, make families feel welcome and nurture children's' development of positive self-identity. 

This series is designed to equip early educators to confidently, powerfully and competently responding to issues of diversity and elevate their capacity for helping young children make sense of the confusing and often emotionally charged messages they receive about themselves and others.

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and
emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

From day one, you will learn a range of practices you can use every day. You'll learn how to set high expectations while being supportive. You will practice how to provide direct feedback and how to ask questions that foster accountability. You will also learn the most effective methods to resolve common conflicts.

DAY 1: Participants will understand key concepts of restorative practices, including:

  • Fundamental Hypothesis/Social Discipline Window
  • Fair Process
  • Psychology of Affect

Circles are an essential process for building social capital, resolving social problems and responding when harm occurs. Circles create a positive learning environment. You will learn by participating in circles with other attendees, taking turns to learn how to facilitate. By the end of the day, you will be prepared to return to your setting and run your first circle!

 In addition to timely networking topics and updates, the 2018-19 Early Childhood Network series will explore principles of anti-bias education and effective classroom strategies aimed at helping young children build social-emotional competency, make families feel welcome and nurture children's' development of positive self-identity.

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and
emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

 In addition to timely networking topics and updates, the 2018-19 Early Childhood Network series will explore principles of anti-bias education and effective classroom strategies aimed at helping young children build social-emotional competency, make families feel welcome and nurture children's' development of positive self-identity. 

This series is designed to equip early educators to confidently, powerfully and competently responding to issues of diversity and elevate their capacity for helping young children make sense of the confusing and often emotionally charged messages they receive about themselves and others.

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Competencies.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

From day one, you will learn a range of practices you can use every day. You'll learn how to set high expectations while being supportive. You will practice how to provide direct feedback and how to ask questions that foster accountability. You will also learn the most effective methods to resolve common conflicts.

DAY 1: Participants will understand key concepts of restorative practices, including:

  • Fundamental Hypothesis/Social Discipline Window
  • Fair Process
  • Psychology of Affect
  • Restorative Practices Continuum

We devote the second day entirely to teaching attendees to facilitate restorative circles. Circles are an essential process for building social capital, resolving social problems and responding when harm occurs. Circles create a positive learning environment. You will learn by participating in circles with other attendees, taking turns to learn how to facilitate. By the end of the day, you will be prepared to return to your setting and run your first circle!

DAY 2: Participants will:

  • Understand the purpose of the circle process and how circles can be used in your setting
  • Learn the necessary skills to prepare and facilitate
