10 Initial Support Team Meetings  Will focus on the school’s CAP and the actions determined by engagement (either concluded or ongoing).  Relationship building and understanding of the process for all roles.

11 Subsequent Support Team Meetings  Focus on  Agreed set of questions – standardized protocol  School and student data  Collaborative problem-solving and decision- making processes  Intermittent updates to CAPs Efforts aimed at supporting schools in improvement efforts

12 What if…  A school is trying to implement several initiatives at once.  It is evident that there is no system for collecting data in a common manner at the school.  SST has determined that the district won’t allow the school to implement a particular program that the school team believes would assist in making progress.
