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

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.

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.

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. Participants will learn how the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines can be incorporated on the front-end of lesson design to provide better and more opportunities for students to learn. Sessions One to Three will revolve around deepening learning of the UDL Guidelines through a book study, face-to-face learning, and applications to practice. Katie Novak, best-selling author and national UDL expert, will join us for Session Four to share strategies aimed at taking UDL implementation to the next level.

Who should attend? Individuals are certainly welcome, but we ask building leaders to consider the wisdom of attending along with one or more classroom teachers and special education teachers to deepen the discussion and consider how the UDL Guidelines might be brought to life in a school as a strategy for school improvement intended to improve student learning outcomes. 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!

Session 1: Introduction to UDL Guidelines. Dig deeply into Engagement. Incorporate book study discussion from UDL Now!

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.

(ONLINE) Lost at School: Ross Greene Online Book Study - February 1, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=19776&memberid=630 (ONLINE) Lost at School: Ross Greene Online Book Study

February 1-28, 2018

This interactive, synergistic, guided online book study is intended to provide a forum for school leaders to explore, in theory and in practice, Dr. Greene’s Collaborative Problem Solving approach to challenging behavior. Over a four-week period from February 1 to February 28, participants will become familiar with, reflect upon, and critique this “enlightened, clear-cut, and practical alternative” to conventional school discipline.

Each week participants will be expected to complete the assigned reading, respond to one or more prompts posted by the facilitator on the group’s Moodle, and engage with co-participants in discussing the potential advantages and disadvantages of implementing the CPS model in their own schools and districts. Participants will be encouraged to complete the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP) for a particular challenging student, pick a specific unsolved problem or trigger upon which to focus, and do an actual or simulated Proactive Plan B intervention (the essence of CPS) with a student, colleague, partner, grandchild, son or daughter, as available.

Participants in this online book study will: 

  • Pursue a common understanding of why school discipline is “broken” and how a new conceptual framework can facilitate three “massive shifts” in a system that isn’t working for teachers, parents, and challenging kids.
  • Familiarize themselves, and each other, with the lagging skills and chronic unsolved problems that underlie challenging behavior, and some of the triggers that activate it.
  • Reflect upon their own experience and professional practice, and that of their colleagues across the state, as they assess the contexts within which Collaborative Problem Solving (Plan B) may be applied in their schools and the extent to which Plan A and Plan C characterize their schools’ current discipline policies and procedures.
  • Learn and practice the three steps for doing Proactive Plan B: empathy, define the problem, and invitation.
  • Share their Plan B experience with other participants.
  • Collaboratively assess problems, and potential problems, with executing Plan B.
  • Learn when and how to use Emergency Plan B and how to use Plan B in groups.
  • Identify and consider structures for supporting and sustaining systemic change around discipline policies and procedures in their schools and districts.

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

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

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.

Cost: $35.00  (Includes Lunch)

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.

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

Initial Training  (Day 1) — Overview of SBIRT, introduction to the requisite skills (Motivational Interviewing), and practice on delivering protocol-guided Brief Intervention services.  Audiotape 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.

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.

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.

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
