Establishing Inclusive Practices at High School
Presented by: Ken Pon
Monday, October 01, 2018 | 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Location:
Central Alberta Regional Consortium 8 Page Avenue, Red Deer, AB
About the Session:

 This session will focus on the challenge of creating collaborative time and the framework for high school teachers to identify and discuss at-risk students. Inclusive Education practices are becoming an integral piece of the educational environment and high schools are a perfect place to speak about student needs.

From this session, participants are intended to have the following takeaways:

  • Create the idea within school leaders that it is important to discuss each child within your building whether you are a small high school or a large one.
  • Begin the construction of a collaborative response model that works for your high school and to create the networking opportunities with colleagues.
  • Use Beaverlodge Regional High School and WR Myers High School as a starting point for conversation of creating a quality learning environment.
