Tier 2 Cohort

Systems & CICO

Capacity Building Sequence

Who Should Participate

Tier 2 Teams-Teams should be composed of administrators, teachers, clinicians, support staff, and other stakeholders interested in improving school climate, supporting all students and staff and continuous improvement. (Maximum of 12 team members).

This capacity building model is suitable if you are implementing Tier I PBIS with fidelity as measured by TFI, SAS, etc. and are preparing to install and/or improve installation of Tier 2.


What is included in the model?

Training/Reboot Training is 12 hours total held over three 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- Similar schools will participate 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 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:

  1. Plan for establishing a Secondary Systems Team with efficient and effective operating procedures.

  2. Establish effective data systems to drive decision-making for both tier 2 systems and individual student response.

  3. Apply critical features for tier 2 behavioral interventions to install and implement Check-in, Check-out.

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.
