3 Effective Teaming

4 Activity #1: Team Meetings
What has worked or went well? What are some struggles your team is having?

5 Effective Teaming Challenges faced by the 2nd year team:
Lost our purpose Staff/Team Member/Administrative turnover Reenergizing What data to share at the beginning of the year Training for new staff and students without being redundant for returning staff and students

6 Effective Team Functioning: Group vs. Team
Comes together for common purpose Members may not be sure or their role Some may not know what to expect Some groups continual cycle organize-reorganize-organize Team Knows why it exists Create environment where issues resolved & tasks accomplished Acceptable ways make decisions Each member contributes to function & purpose of team Members effectively communicate Conflicts are managed & serve as source for problem-solving Assess function & progress on regular basis Stan Paprocki, 2003

7 Effective Team Functioning: A group becomes a team when…
Reestablish your purpose at the first meeting for the new year: Define team purpose Be ready to accommodate membership changes Have resources available to familiarize new members Review how members interact (ground rules, role & responsibilities, conflict & conflict resolution,) Review how decisions are made Review team’s structure (regularly scheduled meetings, agendas that are time limited) A team focuses on both tasks and group process Team members are equal

8 Effective Team Functioning: Team Member Turnover
Establish process for members who leave & new members join team Identify new team members to replace members who left Best if done before school starts Best to pick new members who have a vested interest in improving climate across campus Be ready to share Action Plan, Team Minutes, Training Materials… Establish process for change in administration Who is responsible for talking to new administrator about PBS Share Action Plan, Meeting Schedule, Training Materials…

9 Effective Team Functioning: Effective meetings to keep you energized
Regularly scheduled meetings (scheduled in advance) Purpose of meeting clearly stated Agenda for meeting is time-framed Meeting place is quiet & free from distractions Ground rules established & followed (attendance, participation, equality, decision-making) Team Goals or priorities are established with correlating timeline

Identify a process for team maintenance No one person is responsible for team’s success Incentives for team members Ways to maintain high moral System: Manage conflict in place & followed Manage other team inhibitors (off-subject talk, lack of agreement) For decision-making in place & followed (participative, consensus) Evaluating the meeting and overall team function

11 Activity #2 Check where your team is and what you would like to work on next Draft a timeline *Share Dade’s Calendar Example

12 Keeping your Process New, Creative and Interesting
Subscribe to PBS list to share ideas with other schools ( If your district is doing a PBS newsletter share an article, borrow ideas from other schools Contact your PBS Coordinator if you want to share something with the PBS Outlook Newsletter Have team leaders in your same county share address so that they can share ideas, add them to your list so they get your team meeting minutes Go back and look at your old Action Plans and Activities from the School-wide Training you might find some ideas you forgot about

13 Effective Team Functioning: Sharing Data
With team: (should be done at initial team meeting) Share end of the year data (Discipline, Attendance, FCAT…) Share team evaluations Share results of Benchmarks of Quality Share results of Staff and/or Student Climate Surveys With entire faculty: (should be done at faculty kick-off) Share end of the year discipline data Share results of Staff and/or Students Climate Surveys and proposed changes as a result

14 Using Data to Make Necessary Changes in Procedures and Systems
Notice trends & peaks: (see Predictable Problems Summary Handout) Identify students who will need more support When to do booster trainings for staff? Students? What expectations need to be focused on at beginning of year? Mid year? End of Year? Are there new settings that need rules? When settings need a refresher training?

Use community resources for mentors: local law enforcement, churches, synagogues, sororities/fraternities, Big Brother/Big Sister Would the child benefit from a schedule change? Elementary School: Could the student benefit from a modified schedule where spend ½ day with one teacher and second ½ day with another teacher Has the student participated in one of the school-wide rewards? If no, what can we do to make sure the child gets to participate in the next one so that they get a taste of what they are missing.
