SPDG: Communities of Practice (CoP)

Communities of Practice with facilitation/co-facilitation from CDE

  • Working with IDEA partnerships and the National Association of School Psychologists, Colorado established three Communities of Practice (CoP) to reflect on practices, policies, and evaluation. Each CoP existed to build on the strengths of its members. These CoPs included: Early Childhood CoP, Bilingual School Mental Health Network CoP, and Family-School Partnering CoP for RtI/PBIS.
  • Since the inception of CoP implementation in Colorado, there have been some evolutions. The current CoPs include: Bilingual School Mental Health Network CoP, the Family, School, and Community Partnering CoP, and the North Central Colorado MTSS Community of Practice.
