1 Project 6D Implement a Wraparound Zone

2 Content Overview 2 Wraparound Zone Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

3 3 To build district and school capacity to systematically address students’ non-academic barriers to learning. Initiative Goal These systems relate to 4 Priority Improvement Areas: DISTRICT SYSTEMS Climate & Culture ID & Address Student Needs Community Coalition Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

4 4 Priority Improvement Areas Each participating school creates a climate and culture that promotes positive social, emotional, physical and intellectual health and growth for students, resulting in a new standard of practice understood and practiced by every member of the school community. DISTRICT SYSTEMS Climate & Culture ID & Address Student Needs Community Coalition Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

5 5 Priority Improvement Areas Each participating school implements a proactive system that identifies student needs in key academic and non-academic areas, and connects them to both universal supports and targeted interventions. DISTRICT SYSTEMS Climate & Culture ID & Address Student Needs Community Coalition Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

6 6 Priority Improvement Areas Each participating district integrates a range of resources from both within the schools and the larger community to form a robust coalition of organizations and agencies that convenes on a regular basis. The range of services includes prevention, enrichment, early intervention, and intensive/crisis response services. DISTRICT SYSTEMS Climate & Culture ID & Address Student Needs Community Coalition Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

7 7 Priority Improvement Areas Each participating district develops district-level systems to support the communication, collaboration, evaluation & continuous improvement of the Wraparound Zone Initiative. DISTRICT SYSTEMS Climate & Culture ID & Address Student Needs Community Coalition Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

8 8 Unpacking the Priority Improvement Areas Example Models: Climate & Culture Ensure safety Effectively manage behavior Teach and model strong social- emotional skills Establish positive relationships with families and the community Cultivate a climate of high expectations and positive regard between leadership, staff and students Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

9 9 Example Model: With additional connections to… MTSS ID & Address Student Needs Assess the well-being of all students Effectively implement policies or programs to address the universal needs of the student body Establish a structure/system to create, monitor and adapt success plans for students requiring targeted assistance Provide the necessary training and support to ensure that staff: Identify cues that a student needs additional assistance Respond appropriately to those cues Are looped into the student success plan when applicable Unpacking the Priority Improvement Areas Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

10 10 Example Models: Rhode Island Shared Youth Vision: Collaborative Case Management Community Coalition Establish and coordinate partnerships to address student needs that cannot be met with internal resources Monitor the effectiveness of those partnerships and make changes where necessary Convene internal and external partners/stakeholders to share information, collectively problem-solve and collaborate on improvement efforts Unpacking the Priority Improvement Areas Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

11 11. Example Models: Fewer comparable examples to point to DISTRICT SYSTEMS Set overall vision, values and expectations and allocate necessary resources Regularly monitor the schools’ progress and provide meaningful feedback and support Facilitate cross-school communication & collaboration Implement, monitor and adapt district- wide policies, practices and programs with input from schools Unpacking the Priority Improvement Areas Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

17 17 Key Players: Additional Assistance  public website with notes from cross-district sessions, content-specific resources and a “help desk” where participants can submit questions and receive fast responses from SMI & ESE  ESE WAZ Coordinator: available for in-person or phone assistance about any planning, strategy or logistical issue  Initiative Evaluator: American Institutes for Research providing formative and summative information about WAZ planning, implementation, impact and sustainability Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

18 18 Identifying & Addressing Student Needs Climate & Culture Community Coalition District Systems of Support What You’re Currently Seeing What You’d Like to See (Vision) Priority Improvement Areas (aka Four Functions) Progress: Strategic Planning

19 19 Strategies Policies, practices & programs to achieve your Vision VISION What you want to see (described in worksheet #1) Early Evidence of Change Evidence that the strategy has been implemented with fidelity Technical Benchmarks Implementation milestones (high-level to-do list) Follow-Up Worksheets for the Priority Improvement Areas Outcomes Interim and long- term outcomes that you expect to result from the strategies that you utilized Progress: Strategic Planning Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead

20 20 Sampling of Potential Outcome Metrics Wraparound Fundamentals The ABC’s of Project 6D Progress to Date Looking Ahead  Process-Related Benchmarks (e.g., # of new MOUs signed with community partners, # of students being referred to services, etc.)  Climate & Culture Changes (e.g., % of students that report feeling connected to at least one caring adult at school, % of teachers that feel the school has a safe and supportive climate, etc.)  Student Behavior Data (e.g., attendance rates, # of discipline referrals, student engagement benchmarks, etc.)  Student Performance Data (e.g., CPI & SGP scores, MCAS data, credit completion rates, graduation rates, etc.)
