Using Screening Data to Tier Students for RTI/MTSS
In this webinar, Dr. Eva Dundas, Chief Learning Officer of Branching Minds, and Donna Cross, Director of MTSS and SEL at Evanston-Skokie School District in Illinois, cover how using screening data to tier students preemptively identifies struggling students while reducing referral bias. The team highlights some common successes and challenges districts face when adopting this practice, and spotlights how this practice has evolved at Evanston-Skokie and how Branching Minds is helping with that transformation.
A key resource shared during this webinar was the link to the National Center for Intensive Intervention. On this site, you can review all of the different academic universal screeners as well as behavior universal screeners.
