System Change “Education has a thousand pilots and no central heating system” Tom Luce, National Math and Science Initiative
Scaling Up EBPs currently are used where they are most wanted (boutique uses) Social impact will come from going where they are most needed Accessible to ALL students and families who could benefit Common usage = work with the willing and the reluctant
Scaling Up Scaling up is achieved when at least 60% of the students/ schools that could benefit from an innovation have full and effective access to that innovation
Selection Criteria The State is willing to participate in and contribute to a community of practice. The State has a statewide data collection system in place.
Scaling Up Start with the end in mind What will it take to: Make statewide use of education innovations… That produce increasingly effective outcomes… For the next 50 years?
State Management Team State Transformation Team Regional Implementation Team N = 50 – 200 Schools Regional Implementation Team N = 50 – 200 Schools Regional Implementation Team N = 50 – 200 Schools Regional Implementation Team N = 50 – 200 Schools IMPLEMENTATION CAPACITY FOR SCALING UP EBPs SISEP Support
State Management Team State Transformation Team Regional Implementation Team N = 50 – 200 Schools First Regional Implementation Team N = 9 Staff N = 50 Schools Regional Implementation Team N = 50 – 200 Schools Regional Implementation Team N = 50 – 200 Schools IMPLEMENTATION CAPACITY FOR SCALING UP EBPs [Phase 1] SISEP Support & 2 FTE Too many overqualified people = Capacity Dev.
State Management Team Implementation Team Innovation Teachers Students Policy Enabled Practice (PEP) Practice Informed Policy (PIP) System Change SISEP System Change Support
System Change EXISTING SYSTEM EFFECTIVE INNOVATIONS ARE CHANGED TO FIT THE SYSTEM EXISTING SYSTEM IS CHANGED TO SUPPORT THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE INNOVATION EFFECTIVE INNOVATION
System Change Innovative practices do not fare well in existing organizational structures and systems Organizational and system changes are essential to successful use of innovations Expect it, Plan for it Cannot change a whole system at once
Transformation Zone Use Innovations Develop Implementation Infrastructure Change System
Transformation Zone A “vertical slice” of the education system (from the classroom to the Capitol) The “slice” is large enough (critical mass) to include all aspects of the system »Develop capacity to change systems The “slice” is small enough to be manageable »Manage the change process (small bites) »Manage the risks (most innovations don’t work at first) »Limit the damage (quick recovery, rapid resolution)

For More Information Dean L. Fixsen, Ph.D. Karen A. Blase, Ph.D. State Implementation and Scaling up of Evidence-based Practices National Implementation Research Network
For More Information The OSEP-funded National Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavior and Intervention Supports was established to address the behavioral and discipline systems needed for successful learning and social development of students. The Center provides capacity-building information and technical support about behavioral systems to assist states and districts in the design of effective schools.
