February, 2014


CAST was held February 19th -21st. This is our second year of CAST at WIS. This is proving to be an extremely beneficial activity. These meetings allow all staff working with each student an opportunity to discuss academic/social progress, review intervention programs the student may be participating in or need, and revise services as appropriate.

On February 20th three WIS staff members participated in Common Core State Standards training. The training had a specific focus on ELA. Staff in attendance will be developing and facilitating professional development in the near future to share the learning that occurred.

On February 26-28 seven WIS staff members attended PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention Supports) training in Portland, Oregon. The training focused on positive interventions, programs, and strategies designed to help students be successful both academically and socially. Staff who attended the training will be facilitating training for staff who were not in attendance.
