Data-Informed Decision Making

October 9, 2019 - October 10, 2019

Event Navigation

The Virginia Tiered Systems of Supports is excited to host a two-day, interactive professional learning event focused on developing, implementing and sustaining a data-informed decision-making process for improving instruction and interventions.

Learning Intentions:

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • recognize elements of an integrated and aligned data system that allows “real-time” access to data, analyze current systems for data collection and design a school-wide system for aggregating data to inform instructional decisions;
  • reflect on current data-informed decision-making processes in order to design a more efficient and effective system for continuous learning and improvement; and
  • explain the importance of analyzing fidelity, root causes, and outcome data to evaluate implementation progress and select routines for examining these data to inform practices that result in equitable outcomes for ALL students.

Who Should Attend:

Anchored to the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI 1.12 – 1.15), this event is intended for school-based leadership teams and the division team members who support them. Divisions from PBIS Cohorts and VTSS Cohorts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are invited to attend.
