RTI/MTSS Part II: Data-based Decision Making & Instruction/Intervention Implementation (BUFFALO)

Western Region
Dr. George Batsche | May 23, 2017, 8:30 am-3 pm

Registration begins at 8:30/ Program begins at 9:00

Program Description:
Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a school-wide, data-drive prevention model designed to maximize the impact of academic and behavioral instruction and intervention on student outcomes. Key components of an RtI/MTSS framework include data-based decision making and tiered instruction. This all-day PD session is a continuation of an initial training on RtI/MTSS presented in 2016 and will address: 1) the use of data to evaluate the impact of instruction and interventions across tiers, different demographic groups, and for the school as a whole; and (2) the use of a problem-solving process to develop implement, and evaluate instruction/intervention.

A case study approach will emphasize fidelity to instruction/intervention, sufficiency (amount of time), and the supports needed to implement interventions successfully. This PD event will focus on how to use data for the following purposes:
• How to set instruction/intervention goals for students.
• How to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction and intervention at each of the three tiers as well as for specially designed or special education instruction.
• How to determine if a school is a “healthy” place for its students.
• How to use data in a problem-solving process (across Tiers, 1, 2, & 3, to determine appropriate instruction and intervention.
