  4. 4. KEY IDEAS Collaborative: brings together students, teachers, parents and administration to work together to make progress on common problem. Site-specific: CS Teams decide what issues are important for their schools. No pre-set agenda from CS organization. Holistic: Focuses on looking at entire school and school culture. No quick fixes or targets of blame. Solution-focused: Purpose is to look for and test solutions to address problems, not simply complain. 21st Century: A team of adults and students from a variety of backgrounds working with experts across the country to define, measure and address a complex problem in a multi-faceted way.Friday, January 28, 2011
  5. 5. HOW THIS COULD WORK HERE Challenge Success could weave together many initiatives across school. Reforming awards process in JHS, counseling initiatives on student health, improving advising program, discussion of calendar, 21st century learning. Group could meet monthly to discuss specific topics and develop ideas for action. Don’t necessarily need to go to conference first year. Admin support is important. CS teams need admin buy-in to show that change is possible.Friday, January 28, 2011
