Title: Establishing a Comprehensive System of Learning Supports at a School: Seven Steps for Principals and Their Staff (Guidance Notes)

Description: Schools, districts, and state departments across the country are moving in new directions to address barriers to learning and teaching and to re-engage disconnected students. The intent is to design and develop a comprehensive system of student and learning supports and to fully integrate it into school improvement policy and practice.

Interested schools frequently ask us for an outline of first steps for developing such a system.

The following seven steps are a response to that request.

This set of guidance notes starts with an overview of the steps and then offers detailed notes focusing on each. Included are easily accessed links to free resource aids and tools.
