Webinar - Evaluating the Quality and Effectiveness of your MTSS Practice

Webinar: Evaluating the Quality and Effectiveness of your MTSS Practice

In a healthy RTI/MTSS practice, a data-driven approach is not only important for guiding decisions for individual student needs, but it’s also critical for evaluating the quality and effectiveness of the practice at the school and district level.

Join Dr. Eva Dundas, Chief Learning Officer of Branching Minds, and Trent Benjamin, Director of Elementary Teaching and Learning at North Platte Public Schools, to discuss best practices in leveraging data to monitor the health of your RTI/MTSS practice.

In this webinar, we’ll highlight

- The guiding questions you should be asking about your practice

- The data that are helpful for answering those questions.

We’ll also spotlight how North Platte Public Schools has leveraged the Branching Minds platform to streamline this process, enhance communication across school leaders, and find insight for improving their practice.

The School Leadership Meeting: This meeting is conducted three times a year following the administration of universal screening assessments. The goal of this meeting is to understand the health of school-level RTI/MTSS practice by looking at the percent of students who are adequately being served by the core, the equity of instruction across demographics, grades, and classrooms, and improvement in student outcome measures since the last meeting. These metrics are used to evaluate the quality of practice across tier 1, 2, and 3 levels of support and guide school-level improvement plans. 

 

This meeting is conducted three times a year, similar to a universal screener. The goal of this meeting is to understand the school-wide health and wellness around RTI/MTSS.
