As a leader, when considering your most diverse learners; how do you know who to access, when to access them and for which supports? What structures are most impactful in meeting a broad range of diverse student needs? As a leader, how do I attend to all of this and build capacity with my support staff and teachers so that they feel confident and supported in an inclusive environment as outlined in Inspiring Education? Leading inclusion and attending to the above questions is possible with a well-defined model that clearly outlines a continuum of supports and services from front line classroom to intensive interventions involving multiple partner agencies. Wolf Creek Public Schools will share their continuum of collaborative team structures, an aligned calendar and clearly defined processes to support and lead inclusion. The Wolf Creek Public Schools Inclusive Learning Services staff will present: • dynamic team structures, supporting processes and resources • a method of identifying diverse learners through level of impact • innovative electronic program planning • developing effective collaborative partnerships WCPS Inclusive Learning Services will provide an overview of a variety of roles supporting this model ranging from: school level teams, psychologists, social workers, FNMI success coordinator, inclusive learning coordinators, and leadership.
