Chris Perry draws upon his experience as a teacher and working on several state and federally funded school improvement projects that provide technical assistance to districts and educators to address the academic, behavioral, social emotional, and mental health needs of the students they serve. Additionally, Chris has served on his local School Board since 2017, and guided several private and public school systems through the Kansas Education System Accreditation (KESA) process. With Cultivate, Chris serves as Executive Director where he supports partner schools/districts in achieving their improvement goals by using the principles of implementation science to address areas of need, and to cultivate, replicate and highlight successes in enhancing student learning.
In this initial session, participants will be given an overview on why a classroom environmental model can better support robust implementation over just adopting singular evidence-based practices one at a time. At the conclusion of the session, participants will complete a short self-reflection of current practices, which will be used to identify needs and serve as the basis for an implementation plan developed in the next session.
While many educators strive to meet the needs of all their learners, determining which specific strategies to use can be a challenging task. This is made even more challenging because evidence-based recommendations from various educational specialties do not always overlap, and can even contradict each other. In this interactive webinar series, participants will be walked through a framework for how to select and incorporate evidence-based practices from various educational specialties into a comprehensive classroom environmental model, reflect on their own current practice, be guided through implementation using self-reflection tools, and collaborate with other educators engaged in this work as well.
The series will be recorded and available on myinfinitec.org.
