Effective Classroom Systems

Event Navigation

This two-day event is designed to facilitate team learning and planning around Universal or Tier 1 Virginia Tiered Systems of Supports effective classroom practices. Classroom practices are those strategies essential to effective instruction and include: managing the classroom environment, encouraging/reinforcing appropriate behavior, responding to inappropriate behavior, active supervision, opportunities to respond, classroom expectations, routines and procedures aligned with school-wide expectations.

Who Should Attend?

Division leadership teams and school leadership teams, including building principals, are invited to attend. Divisions may want to consider extending invitations to division level staff charged with ongoing professional learning in classroom instructional and/or behavioral practices. It is recommended that participating schools wishing to attend have completed Tier 1 Professional Learning for school-wide practices (i.e. the Tier 1 Forum). Please contact your VTSS Systems Coach should you need additional guidance.
