Join educators from across the province to share the successes and challenges of schools and districts using the Collaborative Response Model to respond to the needs of ALL students.  This year’s theme “Peeling Back the Layers: Simplexity of CRM” will focus on digging deeper into the Collaborative Response Model framework at the school and district level in six themes:

  • Leadership
  • Embedding Time
  • Collaborative Team Meetings
  • Assessments
  • Pyramid of Interventions/Continuum of Supports
  • Planning for Interventions

The Collaborative Response Model is an Alberta-born framework that values and accelerates purposeful collaboration, action-focused responses, data-informed discussions, and timely intervention to ensure all students can experience success.  Educators are empowered through collaborative processes that enhance professional capacity and honour the collective wisdom of those working with students. This inaugural conference will be an outstanding opportunity to learn more about how schools and districts are developing inclusive frameworks of collaborative response, as well as connect with other dedicated educational leaders engaging in this transformational model of structures, processes and beliefs.

  • Professional Learning Communities
  • Response to Intervention
  • Universal Design for Learning
  • Differentiated Instruction
  • Formative Assessment
