EC Team Collaborative (COVID-19) Resource Page

Hey everyone, 

Our team are committed to bring this group of EC Leaders together every Wednesday at 3:00 virtually to Inform, Connect, Guide, and Unite charter and business leaders during this time. We will continue to do so until we are back in school.

National Examples:

  • At one St. Paul charter school with a Hmong language and culture focus, Community School of Excellence, plan sets the expectation that these meetings align with IEP service minutes.
  • Similarly, another Twin Cities charter, Excell Academy, describes in their plan how teachers will upload videos and lessons that align to the student’s IEP goals, as well as low-tech options for students who cannot access materials required for an online lesson.

Here is the recording from the weekly sessions (latest one first):

You need to focus on the knows and keep asking questions about the unknowns. 

Put your key pillars of the programs into buckets.

  • Service Delivery
  • Compliance
  • Data Collection/Progress Monitoring
  • Calendar/Time
  • Budget and Revenue Timeline
  • Program Evaluation
  • Other?

What is our "mental model of perfection" for each bucket?

What needs to be true for each of those buckets to meet the goal?

What is most important right now?

Who is responsible for what?

Answer these questions and each week, work your plan, and you will be in great shape.
