Behavioral/Instructional Coaching and Collaboration: The Mid-Valley Special Education Cooperative (MVSEC) Provides behavioral and instructional collaboration and consultation to MVSEC programs and member district staff when requested. The purpose of this collaboration is to provide coaching support to assist the team in developing and implementing and comprehensive function-based support plan to maintain the student's current educational placement. This collaboration is a long-term process that requires several team meetings, on-site coaching, multiple classroom observations, and plan evaluation. In addition, the Behavioral/Instructional Cashes provide professional development, as needed.

Professional Development. Annually, in collaboration with the member districts, MVSEC conducts a survey of staff and parents regarding the services and necessary professional development. Then, Mid-Valley arranges for and provides professional development for MVSEC and member district staff on a wide variety of topics. These topics may include strategies for improving behavior, effective methods for student with autism, successful IEP writing, the use of assistive technology, etc. These topics are revisited each year and are refined for program improvement.
