Integrating Student Assistance Team with the RTI Process

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

"This guidebook outlines a model SPRINT (School Prevention, Review, and Intervention Team)/RtI2 system that has been used across the country as part of Project ACHIEVE’s effective school and schooling system. Written as an “Implementation Guide,” a school or district could adopt, use, and/or adapt this document to organize its multi-tiered RtI2 policy, procedures, actions, and decision rules."

Stop the pay, stop the play

Stop the pay, stop the play | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

This is a good article to read.  

 

Having thought deeply about reward systems and people's concerns about  tangible goodies, I now feel that the important thing is that we pay attention to the RIGHT things; we acknowledge the GOOD as often as possible so that our energy and attention TELLS kids that it pays to be a decent human being within the community.  

 

This is more about where we put our energy and the message that sends to others!  If our attention is always on correcting and redirecting, that sends a message and interferes with good relationships.

How to build a micronation | TED Blog

How to build a micronation | TED Blog | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it
TED Fellow Jorge Mañes Rubio has created a new micronation in response to the social struggles of a small neighborhood in Amsterdam.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Very cool article!  Building a "micronation" when you have a group that comes from a variety of different backgrounds involves creating a common goal!  This TED blog shows how one artist managed to do just that.   Projects like this open new possibilities that might expand the future impact of artists on social issues — going beyond the pre-established white cube context.

 

 "These organizations are  heavily structured, with little interaction between each other, and showed little wiggle room for change. Meanwhile, I noticed that the cultural diversity caused a lot of tension and confusion, particularly among young children. We decided that whatever solution we came up with should not only involve the neighbors, but should also somehow bring together the existing organizations in the area for a common purpose. It all sounded great. But how?"

What’s Your Plan? Accurate Decision Making within a Multi-Tier System of Supports: Critical Areas in Tier 1
addresses the complexity of MTSS decision-making, identifies critical decision points within Tier 1 at the building level, and provides practical tips and useful tools to improve decision-making throughout the implementation process.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

One guideline for MTSS implementation is having approximately 80% of the students reach the benchmark criteria established by the screening tool. If the percentage is significantly lower than 80%, buildings should intensify their focus on improving Tier 1 instruction for two reasons: 1) buildings do not have the resources to intervene with a large percentage of students and 2) you cannot “intervene” your way out of core instruction that is not effective. Given these limitations, it is critical for teams to choose reliable and valid criteria for screening.

Learn how to integrate academic and behavior supports for each tier of intervention in a Response to Intervention (RtI) model.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

"The purpose of this article series is to provide a framework for the integration of academic and behavior supports for each tier of intervention in a Response to Intervention (RtI) model. In this first article in the series, we include a rationale for combined academic and behavior supports. The second article involves a discussion of the universal academic and behavioral reform that is needed to arrive at an integrated model. The third article provides a description of supports for groups of students who do not respond to the core curriculum based on the nature of their needs. The fourth and final article includes an overview of how to identify strategies for intervention and how to establish progress monitoring for students with the most intensive needs."

Using Data to Facilitate Change

Using Data to Facilitate Change | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Data isn’t about what we think is happening in our schools; it’s about information that is systematically collected and presented in a form that can help educators clearly and accurately see what’s happening in their schools and districts. And, according to noted systems expert Peter Senge, an accurate assessment of current reality is a prerequisite to any change effort: “In moving toward a destination, it is vital to know where you are now.”1

Steve Whitmore's curator insight, April 23, 9:50 AM

This article is about building level change for all students.  The greater website addresses system wide methods of using data to create appropriate programming for students with IEP's. It is worth looking at when addressing a systems perspective.  

 

I would be interested in ways that the data collection and analysis could be used in individual IEP's.  What are your thoughts?

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

MTSS  is best practice around meeting the needs of all students in the classroom/building.  It is not a separate "program" and should be embedded in the continuous school improvement plan.  Many strategies (UDL, Differentiated Instruction) are best practice tools used in this framework.
