• Identify the function, responsibilities and role of the targeted team;
• Inventory the formal and informal targeted supports currently available, identify gaps and prioritize
practices for implementation;
• Understand Check-In, Check-Out and Teacher Check, Connect and Expect and plan for implementation; and
