Tier 2 School Team Training Cohort

Systems & CICO

Capacity Building Sequence

Who Should Participate

Tier 2 System Teams-Teams should represent your school (e.g., grade levels, departments, and those delivering advanced tiered interventions) and have authority for decision making. Recommended roles to compose this team are: administrators, general education teachers (including PE, art, music, etc), special education teachers, school-based clinicians, community based clinicians, school nurse and support staff. (Maximum of 12 team members).

This capacity building model is suitable for schools preparing to install and/or improve implementation of Tier 2. Also, suitable for teams with new membership. It is recommended that schools participating are implementing Tier 1 PBIS with or near fidelity (70%) as measured by Tiered Fidelity Inventory.

What is included in the model?

The school team will participate in a series of training and technical assistance activities in a cohort approach with other school teams. Teams from training will continue in a Community of Practice together. 

Training/Reboot Training is 12 hours of virtual training held over three consecutive days. The training supports development or improvement of necessary components of Tier 2 installation, while confirming necessary components of Tier 1 implementation. Action plans are developed based on current context with progress towards high fidelity implementation.

Communities of Practice- Representation from school teams (i.e., Tier 2 Coach, administrator) from training will continue virtual participation in ongoing facilitated communities of practice to monitor benchmarks of implementation, engage in ongoing problem solving, and technical assistance to support deepening implementation as they interact. (6 meetings)

Individualized Technical Assistance- In addition to communities of practice which will focus on ongoing needs of the school cohorts, individualized virtual technical assistance will be provided to focus on individual needs of the school community.  (2 TA Events)

What will our team be able to do?

This training and technical assistance sequence is designed to help school teams develop the capacity to install and implement effective and efficient systems for layering targeted (tier 2) interventions for students. Activities will guide school teams to plan for establishing effective operating procedures and data systems to drive decision making at secondary level.

In addition to planning for secondary systems and data, school teams will design Check-in, Check-out as an initial, low level targeted intervention within their continuum of supports.

Training Objectives:

Why should we participate?

While initial training helps support teams in understanding and/or improving their knowledge and capacity related to Tier 2 installation, teams that receive ongoing support increase the likelihood of high fidelity implementation.  As schools encounter setbacks, have questions, need support, systems have been established to support the team in problem solving, capacity building and delivering on action planning while continuously measuring outcomes.
