Tier II Paperwork Tier II Intervention Plan consists of: Tier II Intervention Plan consists of: Student info Student info Define Problem, Develop a Plan, Set Goal Define Problem, Develop a Plan, Set Goal Progress Monitoring Information Progress Monitoring Information Evaluation of Plan Evaluation of Plan Contact with Parent Contact with Parent Decision to continue, modify, discontinue, or move to Tier III Decision to continue, modify, discontinue, or move to Tier III

Tier II Paperwork Teachers will keep copies of Tier II paperwork in a folder in their rooms Teachers will keep copies of Tier II paperwork in a folder in their rooms 1 folder for each student 1 folder for each student This folder will also contain the Tier 1 paperwork This folder will also contain the Tier 1 paperwork Case colleagues will make copies of paperwork to be placed in a folder in front office Case colleagues will make copies of paperwork to be placed in a folder in front office

Tier II Paperwork Teachers will keep progress monitoring data in this folder along with Tier II paper work Teachers will keep progress monitoring data in this folder along with Tier II paper work

Progress Monitoring for Students in Tier II K-2 teachers will progress monitor reading progress using DIBELS K-2 teachers will progress monitor reading progress using DIBELS Progress monitoring using DIBELS will be done on a weekly basis Progress monitoring using DIBELS will be done on a weekly basis Space is provided on the Tier II paperwork for progress monitoring data Space is provided on the Tier II paperwork for progress monitoring data

Progress Monitoring for Students in Tier II K-2 subjects other than reading and 3-5 all subjects: K-2 subjects other than reading and 3-5 all subjects: Students will be monitored on a weekly basis using: Students will be monitored on a weekly basis using: Curriculum Based Measurements Curriculum Based Measurements

Tier II for Behavior Students who do not make progress in Tier I will move to Tier II/Tier III Students who do not make progress in Tier I will move to Tier II/Tier III -At this level the teacher will start meeting with the problem solving team to help with behavior plans

Tier II Procedures Parents will also be notified with a letter when their child enters Tier II Parents will also be notified with a letter when their child enters Tier II At the beginning of Tier I the child will be screened for health problems (vision, hearing, etc.) At the beginning of Tier I the child will be screened for health problems (vision, hearing, etc.) Interventions can consist of targeted groups within the classroom Interventions can consist of targeted groups within the classroom Parents will be contacted at the end of the intervention phase Parents will be contacted at the end of the intervention phase

Tier II: Strategic Interventions Scientifically research-based interventions Scientifically research-based interventions Academic – reading, math & writing Academic – reading, math & writing Behavior Behavior Standard course of study with supplemental materials Standard course of study with supplemental materials Differentiated instruction in the classroom Differentiated instruction in the classroom

Student Social & Academic Behaviors Are Strongly Influenced by the Instructional Setting (Lentz & Shapiro, 1986) Students with learning problems do not exist in isolation. Rather, their instructional environment plays an enormously important role in these students eventual success or failure Students with learning problems do not exist in isolation.

The Four Stages of Learning Can Be Summed Up in the Instructional Hierarchy (Haring et al., 1978) Student learning can be thought of as a multi-stage process. The universal stages of learning include: Acquisition: The student is just acquiring the skill. Acquisition: The student is just acquiring the skill. Fluency: The student can perform the skill but must make that skill automatic. Fluency: The student can perform the skill but must make that skill automatic. Generalization: The student must perform the skill across situations or settings. Generalization: The student must perform the skill across situations or settings. Adaptation: The student confronts novel task demands that require that the student adapt a current skill to meet new requirements.

Results of Tier II Tier II Move back to Tier I 1.No longer At-Risk 2.No longer concerned Continue with intervention Student still needs support But is progressing Move to Tier III After intervention student is still considered At-Risk

Moving back to Tier I Moving back to Tier I Fill out Tier I paperwork Fill out Tier I paperwork Information does not need to be new Information does not need to be new Document continuation of intervention that is working or how an intervention has been modified Document continuation of intervention that is working or how an intervention has been modified Must contact parent and notify the change in Tiers Must contact parent and notify the change in Tiers Moving to Tier III Finish filling out Tier II paper work Notify case colleague so PST team can place you on the agenda Make sure all progress monitoring data is included in students folders

Teacher Support Intervention Notebooks Intervention Notebooks Introduction of interventions within core curriculum Introduction of interventions within core curriculum Case colleague assigned by Problem Solving Team Case colleague assigned by Problem Solving Team

Roles of Case colleague Case colleague will meet with teacher at the beginning of Tier II to help with paperwork, interventions, and answer any other questions that arise Case colleague will meet with teacher at the beginning of Tier II to help with paperwork, interventions, and answer any other questions that arise Case colleagues will also meet with Teachers at the end of Tier II Case colleagues will also meet with Teachers at the end of Tier II Case colleagues will be in charge of transferring paperwork from teachers folder to office folder Case colleagues will be in charge of transferring paperwork from teachers folder to office folder Case colleagues will be in charge of setting up PST Team meeting if moving to Tier III Case colleagues will be in charge of setting up PST Team meeting if moving to Tier III

Problem Solving Team Please stand up!!!! Please stand up!!!! How these meetings run How these meetings run 1 st meeting is problem analysis and assessment plan development 1 st meeting is problem analysis and assessment plan development 2 nd meeting is to set up intervention plan and to go over assessment data 2 nd meeting is to set up intervention plan and to go over assessment data Progress monitoring is done on interventions 2-3 times a week by psychologist or interventionist Progress monitoring is done on interventions 2-3 times a week by psychologist or interventionist Team reconvenes in 6 weeks to go over progress or lack of progress Team reconvenes in 6 weeks to go over progress or lack of progress

Target Student Discrepancy 1: Skill Gap (Current Performance Level) Avg Classroom Academic Performance Level Discrepancy 2: Gap in Rate of Learning (Slope of Improvement)

Prong 1 – Criteria: Educational Progress Researched-based interventions have failed to improve a students rate of learning and additional resources are needed to enhance student learning or the interventions have improved the rate of learning but are too demanding to be implemented with integrity without intensive intervention Researched-based interventions have failed to improve a students rate of learning and additional resources are needed to enhance student learning or the interventions have improved the rate of learning but are too demanding to be implemented with integrity without intensive intervention

Prong 2 – Criteria: Discrepancy Given equal or enhanced opportunities, the students current level of performance is significantly lower than typical peers on identified standards Given equal or enhanced opportunities, the students current level of performance is significantly lower than typical peers on identified standards

Prong 3 – Criteria: Instructional Needs Instructional needs have been identified that are beyond what can be provided in general education – this is evident when curriculum, instruction or the environmental conditions need to be very different for the student as compared to the needs of other students in the general education environment.
