Tier 2 Continuum of Interventions Beyond CICO

This training session is designed to help school teams consider their data to identify group interventions to best meet the needs of their students. The focus will be on the development and installation of Social Academic Instructional Groups (SAIGs). The development of SAIG’s will take into consideration the structure of the group, skills which need to be taught, skills required of the staff, location, and frequency of the group(s). Schools will be supported in the process of exploring and applying critical features of Tier II interventions. Teams will learn about the systems necessary to support interventions and the data used to assess student outcomes and intervention fidelity.

If you are looking to install foundational Tier II Data, Systems and Practices, visit our Tier II Team Training (Days 1 & 2) training content page.

Who Should Participate:

This training is designed for school staff intended to engage in coaching, coordination of facilitation of groups or mentoring.
