Education@100% Is a Course That Empowers Leadership As They Confront the Trauma That Marginalizes Students The Education@100% course is for education professionals committed to schools being centers of caring, learning and academic success.
In Anna, Age Eight, chapter 10: “Experience being courageous preferred, but not essential” we call for leadership and public engagement. We envision a result-focused ACEs prevention and treatment process unfolding in every school, college and university across the state.
The course empowers and meets a vital need in education sectors
Public and private education comes in contact with children and families enduring various levels of ACEs and family trauma, with some classrooms having as many as three quarters of the students enduring three or more ACEs. The Education@100% course can have a significant impact on strengthening the work of local school districts and the Public Education Department. The course offers participants with the technical assistance to promote data-driven decision-making and quality improvement among the state department’s leadership and on the county level.
Our public education system faces huge expectations and significant challenges with students’ futures in the balance. We support a collaborative process of innovation guided by continuous quality improvement and supported by state-of-the-art technology.
Katherine Ortega Courtney, PhD and Dominic Cappello, designers of the Data Leaders for Child Welfare program
The course supports participants, leaders within all areas of education, in developing new policies, programs and protocols to address ACEs impact on learning, preventing abuse and neglect through course-based real-world projects. The course instructors provide participants with the skills and resources to create an education system that is collaborative, data-driven, technology-infused and with the key assets to achieve better outcomes for our most vulnerable students and families.
The six session course includes classroom instruction, coaching and web-based lessons and can be customized to adapt to the unique needs and scheduling of the education workforce:
- Engaging with Continuous Quality Improvement
- Assessing the Challenges
- Planning for Results
- Action Guided by Data
- Evaluating Progress
- Facilitating Change/Sharing Course Projects with the Community
