Effective Meeting Structures in an MTSS / RTI Practice

    Thursday, October 31, 2019
    3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
    Time displayed above is EST - The webinar will be available everywhere via Zoom

    In this webinar, Dawn Kulpa, the Director of MTSS/SEL at San Antonio Independent School District, together with Dr. Eva Dundas, Chief Learning Officer of Branching Minds, and Karen Castle, Director of Professional Learning at Branching Minds, discussed:

    • different meeting structures and objectives in a MTSS/RTI model;

    • how to effectively problem-solve at the school, grade/content team, and individual student level;

    • highlight some common successes and challenges districts face when adopting these practices; and,

    • how this practice has evolved at San Antonio Independent School District with the support of Branching Minds.

    Some key takeaways from this webinar were:

    • the evolution of current meetings teachers have to take on more of a problem-solving lens, such as PLC meetings (rather than adding more meetings );

    • the optimization of meetings to look for patterns and responses at the tier 1 and 2 level so that there are fewer individual student meetings required; and,

    • agendas and formats for guiding each of those tier 1, 2 and 3 meeting types to streamline and improve productivity within those meetings.
