MTSS: MULTI-TIER SYSTEM OF SUPPORTS Circle High School Implementation: ▀ School Year ▀ Freshmen & Sophomores ▀All regular & special education students ▀ During Math Assist Classes ▀ During Seminar Time on Wednesday
CORE BELIEFS OF MTSS Every Child Learns and Achieves to High Standards Learning includes Academic and Social Competencies Every Member of the Education Community Continues to Grow, Learn, and Reflect Every leader at All Levels is Responsible For Every Student Change is Intentional, Coherent, and Dynamic
Tier 3 Tier 2 Tier 1 80 % of Students Should into this Tier The Core Curriculum is enough Screening of All students (NWEA) Tier 1 is for 50%tile to 100% tile Scary Greens are 25% to 49%tile No more than 15 % of Students Should fall into this Tier--Screened by AMES WEB 30 minutes of Supplemental work everyday Tier 2 is for 10%tile to 25%tile No More than 5 % of Students Should fall into this Tier 60 minutes of Intensive work everyday Tier 3 is for 0%tile to 9%tile Supplemental and Intensive work is in addition to the Core Curriculum MTSS Recommended Numbers
Tier 3 Tier 2 Tier 1 25% of Current Freshmen are Scary Greens 26/105 Students Only 2 Students are in Special Education 30% of Current Freshmen 50% or Above 32/105 Students 24% of Current Freshmen fall into this Tier 25/105 Students Only 1 Student is in Special Education 22/105 Students Only 5 Students are in Special Education 21% of Current Freshmen fall into this Tier Preliminary Data from Gathered Spring of 2012 & Used for Enrollment Scary Greens: 25% to 50%
PLANNED MTSS SCHEDULE Used AIMSWEB (Universal screener) to Benchmark all Freshmen & Sophomores in their Math Class. Created a MTSS class for All Tier II/III students 0%tile to 25%tile from AIMSWEB benchmarking Class meets every other day for 90 mins. (student receives credit for the class) Created a Seminar for “Scary Greens” 25%tile to 50%tile from AIMSWEB benchmarking Class meets once every week for 50 mins. Classes were set up for the entire semester No changes are made until semester is completed
REALITY!!!!!!!!!! Re-testing done in Fall Massive Schedule Changes (BIG ISSUES!!!!) Created two math classes for MTSS MTSS Algebra Assist and MTSS Geometry Assist Algebra Assist and Geometry Assist Program ISSUES!!!!! (Learning the MTSS Process) GRADING TIME/Data entry Dealing with Bumps in the road (Teachers/Parents) Stay Focused on Core Values
Tier 3 Tier 2 Tier 1 36% of Current Fr/Soph are Scary Greens 88/244 Students Only 12 Students are in Special Education 57% of Current Fr/Soph 50% or Above 140/244 Students 4% of Current Fr/Soph fall into this Tier 9/224 Students Only 1 Student is in Special Education 7/224 Students 3 Students are in Special Education 3% of Current Fr/Soph fall into this Tier Fall Benchmark Data Spring Benchmark Data Tier 3 was 21% Tier 2 was 24% Tier 1 Scary Greens was 25% Core was 30%
RESOURCES USED FOR MTSS V-Math from Voyager Learning for MTSS assist class (Tier II & Tier III) Each Level is around $400 We use 3 levels (G, H, & I, which is 6 thru 8 grade) We do not use the online software. Resources are consumable workbooks. For Seminar, Pre-teaching or Re-teaching of Core Math class concepts during seminar (Scary Greens) Both MTSS Class & Seminar do 10 mins of math computation each day they meet.
PROGRESS MONITORING MTSS classes & Seminar are Progress Monitored using AIMSWEB. MTSS classes Progress Monitor Tier III every week MTSS classes Progress Monitor Tier II every two weeks Seminar Scary Greens are Progress Monitored Once a Month We monitor this frequently to show progress to students (students track their own progress), parents, and teachers.
INFORMING PARENTS & STUDENTS Interventionists send letters the beginning of year semester to inform them why their student is placed in MTSS class. Interventionists & Counselors call in students and inform them of placement in the MTSS class or Seminar, and why.
1 ST SEMESTER Class changes were done by Mid-September Back Probing to find instructional grade level began for the 1 st Week Started with 7 students in Tier III (intensive instruction) Started with 9 students in Tier II Started with 88 students as Scary Greens Out of the 88 those who were not already receiving assistance in another assist class were placed into a Seminar class. Ended Semester with 0 Tier III Students!!!!!
Tier 3 Tier 2 Tier 1 40% of Current Fr/Soph are Scary Greens 95/236 Students Only 14 Students are in Special Education 51% of Current Fr/Soph 50% or Above 120/236 Students 9% of Current Fr/Soph fall into this Tier 21/236 Students Only 2 Student is in Special Education NONE FROM WINTER BENCHMARK Winter Data Fall Benchmark Data Tier 3 3% Tier 2 4% Tier 1 Scary Greens 36% Core 57%
1ST SEMESTER RESULTS Used AIMSWEB (Universal screener) to Benchmark all Freshmen & Sophomores in their Math Class in December (excluding Algebra II). Started with 7 students in Tier III (intensive instruction); ended with ZERO Started with 9 students in Tier II; ended with 21 Started with 88 students as Scary Greens, and ended with 95
2 ND SEMESTER Schedule changes were completed before Winter Break New to Tier II students were backwards probed to find instructional level. Students who stayed in Tier II continued V-Math from previous semester. Scary Greens were placed again in an Assist Class or a Seminar. Interventionists send letters the beginning of semester to inform them why their student is placed in MTSS class. Interventionists & Counselors called in students and informed them of placement in the MTSS class or Seminar and why.
Tier 3 Tier 2 Tier 1 14% of Current Fr/Soph are Scary Greens 33/229 Students Only 5 Students are in Special Education 73% of Current Fr/Soph 50% or Above 166/229 Students 12% of Current Fr/Soph fall into this Tier 27/229 Students Only 1 Student is in Special Education 3/229 Students 2 Students are in Special Education 1 % of Current Fr/Soph fall into this Tier Spring Benchmark Data Completed by Mid-April Winter Benchmark Data Tier 3 None Tier 2 9% Tier 1 Scary Greens 40% Core 51%
END OF YEAR RESULTS Started with 0 students in Tier III (intensive instruction); ended with 3 (all were students who moved into the district) Started with 21 students in Tier II; ended with 27 Started with 88 students as Scary Greens, and ended with 33
STUDENT SURVEY RESULTS Students were asked their level of confidence before & after MTSS Scores increased from 5.8 to 8.2 on a scale from 1 to 10 Student Comments It was very boring but it helped. I’m starting to care. Math has gotten easier to understand and simpler. I became better at math. I can teach others.
CHANGES FOR YEAR TWO Make a intervention check list Schedule regular meetings once a month for team and interventionists Surveys for Students and Faculty Survey for Interventionists More Celebrations for progress
CHANGES FOR YEAR TWO Communication with parents Progress Monitoring pdf from AIMS WEB Better Communication with staff concerning those in MTSS Skills to work on with Scary Greens during Seminar Counselor is prepared to give the benchmark test to new students. Verify that MTSS Assist classes are at the same time. Created Financial Algebra for those juniors who are not going into Algebra II or beyond
FACULTY BUY IN We had our staff take both timed AIMSWEB Benchmark tests We then had them grade their own Faculty realized that basic math skills were more important than 1 st believed. MTSS team sends out s to all staff concerning MTSS activities in progress.
Tier 3 Tier 2 Tier 1 8% of Current Fr/Soph are Scary Greens 16/197 Students 6 Students are in Special Education 87% of Current Fr/Soph 50% or Above 171/197 Students 3% of Current Fr/Soph fall into this Tier 6/197 Students 2 Student is in Special Education 4/197 Students 3 Students are in Special Education 2 % of Current Fr/Soph fall into this Tier Fall 2013 Benchmark Data Spring 2013 Benchmark Data Tier 3 1% Tier 2 12% Tier 1 Scary Greens 14% Core 73%
