    NCISC COLLABORATIVE SERIES

    ENGAGE • EDUCATE • ELEVATE

    collaborate

    The NCISC Collaborative Series meetings serve as a forum where district leaders can share, collaborate, and ask questions in a safe and supportive space around curriculum, instruction, approaches to learning, processes, special education, MTSS, school statutes, and a myriad of other topics! Please see the role-specific collaboratives below to join a series that best supports you in your job role. 
     
    Leaders have the opportunity to become acquainted with other educators in similar roles within our 39 North Cook districts and our special ed cooperatives. Guest speakers will also join meetings to enhance the dialogue and open minds to new ideas and opportunities.

    Please email NCISC Director of Education & PL, Alina Morelli Baima, to be added to our email group(s), receive agenda(s), and Zoom link(s): amorellibaima@ncisc.org
