Description:   A local school wellness policy (LSWP) is a written document that guides a local educational agency’s (LEA) or school district’s efforts to establish a school environment that promotes students’ health, well-being, and ability to learn.The wellness policy requirement was established by the Child Nutrition and Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Reauthorization Act of 2004 and further strengthened by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA). It requires each LEA participating in the National School Lunch Program and/or School Breakfast Program to develop a wellness policy. On July 29, 2016, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) finalized regulations to create a framework and guidelines for written wellness policies established by LEAs. The final rule requires LEAs to begin developing a revised local school wellness policy during School Year 2016-2017. LEAs must fully comply with the requirements of the final rule by June 30, 2017.This training will cover the final rule’s expanded requirements to strengthen policies and increase transparency. Required LSWP elements cover the following topics: Nutrition education and promotion (including marketing), physical activity, guidelines for foods and beverages, public involvement, communication and LSWP leadership. The responsibility for developing, implementing, and evaluating a wellness policy is placed at the local level, so the unique needs of each school under the LEA’s jurisdiction can be addressed. As a result of this training, participants will be able to design a LSWP that will meet USDA Administrative Review criteria and provide the framework for the successful implementation of strategies to promote the health and wellbeing of the entire school community.

Target Audience:   [Administrators]
Description:   The RESC Alliance Foundational Skills for Evaluators of Teachers training is designed to concentrate on the evaluator’s capacity to observe and analyze teacher performance and practice inherent in the CT Common Core of Teaching (CCT) and to provide supportive, high quality feedback to teachers. The primary focus of this training is on written feedback that focuses on areas of strengths and areas of growth explicitly connected to the rubric and observable classroom practices/evidence. The training is designed to link written feedback to verbal feedback and coaching strategies. This supports not only the evaluator’s ability to organize written feedback but consider how this feedback creates a platform for formal conferences that are instructionally focused, dialogic, and student-centered.Training includes both formative reviews of practice along with a final demonstration of proficiency. Participants take part in one formal and one informal video-based observation during the three-day training. Participants will receive feedback about their own practice that will help to codify key skills and prepare them to connect teacher practice to student learning. The training objectives are: •Develop skills on how to provide quality feedback on student learning goals/objectives; •Develop skills in how to conduct effective observations and provide high-quality feedback; •Practice collecting evidence and aligning evidence to the CCT Rubric for Effective Teaching 2014; and •Demonstrate proficiency in the observation and evaluation of teachers.
