Sometimes the decision is made to bring in an external professional to work with the school. This may be necessary if children require specialist assessments if concerns are raised by staff or parent/carers. Although there are many different types of professionals I am going to explain the role of three professionals.
One of the many benefits of the middle school model is that being part of a team forms a bond between the teachers and students. “The team and their students truly become a community of learners.” (Kellough & Kellough, 2008, pg 8) In order for a team to be successful teams must provide tools to help students grow. (Erb, T. O, 2006, pg 5) Teachers get to know their students very well. Since students in middle school are going through physical, social, and psychological development that could affect their academic performance, it is important to have teachers who really get to know their students. Every learner has different needs and teachers need to take into consideration the individual learning needs of students in order to help them succeed. Since the four teacher share the same students they are able to discuss the needs of their student in order to develop strategies and programs that may help the student. This assures that no student falls through the cracks. There has been links to effective teams and academic performance. “Middle schools have successfully improved student performance when they have also had a common decision-making vision that led to creative, inviting, supportive, and safe school environment.” (Erb, T. O, 2006, pg 7) Getting to know students well and to take into consideration their needs as well as changes they are
If not it is usually they teacher that starts the meeting off and states what will be covered and why they are there.

For my educational experience, i attended a school board meeting on April 26th at the District center. This was my first school board meeting, so i wasn 't sure what to expect, but i wasn 't expecting that set up. I was expecting more parental and community involvement, those stereotypical parents who criticizes everything about the system. Instead i found myself with adults who looked like they were doing the same amount of observing as me. There was 8 board members sitting together in a closed square flip top, i didn 't particularly like this because a few members had there back faced to the guests and it felt like guests/other presenters weren 't as important or acknowledged really. Behind the members, were two rows of about 7 chairs, for guest. I 've noticed four cameras surrounded the room and a tv capturing everything. I found this rather interesting, that you can watch these at home and still get a feel what 's going on at the meeting. I chose to attend this school board meeting because i 've personally always wanted to go there and knew Ms. Barnes was going to be there, and felt more comfortable with a familiar face. I think as a future educator, it 's important to get involved within the community on issues revolving around education, becauses they do affect

The purpose of group learning and development is to ensure that all learning styles are catered for and the ultimate goal of sharing knowledge is achieved. When using a group to deliver something new each individual can call on a fellow participant to confirm understanding.
On November 9, Mead School District held the fifth school board meeting of this academic year. Running the meeting was Superintendent Tom Rockefeller, President Board Director Ron Farley, Vice President Board Director Denny Denholm, and Board Directors, Maureen O’Connor, Robert Olson, and Carmen Green. All of the directors were recently re-elected, excluding Maureen O’Connor who isn’t up for re-election until next year. Due to this, there was an almost celebratory feel to the meeting, with many of the Directors, especially Vice-President Denholm, making jokes and being conversational with the small audience. At the meeting, I was the only person attending that was not giving a presentation to the board. The rest of the audience was made up

Every student with disabilities is also obligated to an IEP specifically for the student’s needs between the ages of 3 and 21 under IDEA. The IEP is created by a team of six or seven, depending on the age of the student. The six members are the parents, an individual that can explain the assessment results, keep in mind, the faculty of the school must not under any circumstances conduct the evaluations without parental consent.

I am able to discuss any work related concerns during my supervision as well and discuss my professional development. Staff is able to access courses, workshops and seminars that enhance the knowledge relating to the implementation of safeguarding policies. Weekly staff meetings improve working practice allowing staff to discuss child safeguarding issues. Nevertheless, not everyone in the team holds same level of safeguarding training, especially agency staff or volunteers that come in contact with children and families, creating great risk to their
All the meetings were conducted face-to-face. I felt that this was a healthy aspect because it allows communication to be more effective. To illustrate, it enables members to clarify any information immediately and this helps to prevent
