Tier 1: Data-Informed Decision Making (TFI 1.12-1.15)

October 10, 2018 - October 11, 2018

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 in order to strengthen the effectiveness of Tier 1 instruction for behavior, academics, and mental wellness. 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. As a result of this professional learning, participants will:

  • 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
  • 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./li>

Who Should Attend?

PBIS & VTSS Cohorts 1-5 divisions and school representatives.
