School, Cluster and District Planning
I would be pleased to discuss your school, cluster or district's needs and see how Kagan Australia can help you make a positive long-term impact on student engagement, achievement, and school culture. Whether you're looking for a multi-year school plan or a large-scale district improvement plan, Kagan is here to help. We know what works. I look forward to working with you!
Let Kagan Australia help you develop a successful school, cluster or district implementation plan. Kagan Structures are engagement tools that work within and support powerful systemic initiatives such as Professional Learning Communities (PLC), Response to Intervention (RTI) and Positive Behavioural Interventions and Supports (PBIS). The Kagan Structures can also be used as a stand-alone instructional innovation to boost engagement and achievement.
The ultimate goal of staff development is to create positive change. It is essential that any new innovation be part of a structured school improvement process that includes training, monitoring, support and resources. As a leader in research-based instruction, Kagan recognises that change takes time. Improvement in student performance only occurs after teachers have time to development new skills in a collaborative and supportive environment.
Yvonne Collings, Director Kagan Australia, will assist schools to develop plans that include key elements of school improvement such as teacher training, school leaders or executive training, coaching, implementation monitoring, and assessment. In addition, Yvonne will work with schools to build internal capacity so that Kagan Cooperative Learning becomes part of the school culture.
