Student Support At Brooke
General Education Collaboration
Student support staff and general education teachers work together towards the success of all students in their classrooms. They meet frequently to individualize instruction for students who need it. They share a commitment to growth mindset and holding all students to high expectations. The collaboration between our student support and general education teachers is critical to supporting students' individual learning goals.
Families are frequently updated on their student’s progress toward their individualized goals. Student support staff ensure that families have a voice in their child’s education. Brooke recognizes students are whole people, and our student support staff work with families as well as outside partners to ensure we have a unified approach to meeting students' needs.
Student support staff receive professional development specific to their area of expertise. Each staff member benefits from observation and instructional coaching throughout the school year. Our related services providers (e.g. school psychologists, occupational therapists) receive a $1,000 annually toward professional development in their field. This budget gives them opportunities to attend national conferences and/or receive mentoring from specialists outside of Brooke.
