RTI Meeting Encourages Regional Collaboration
The Data Warehouse recently hosted a day of conversation and collaboration around various aspects of Response to Intervention (RTI).  This was the second full-day meeting hosted by the CNYRIC this school year, with a final event taking place on June 5.  Each of the RTI days include morning sessions focused on universal screening tools, followed by an afternoon RTI Professional Learning Community (PLC).
Districts share strategies and best practices 
During the recent meeting, approximately 100 attendees, including teachers, instructional specialists, school psychologists, and building leaders were present for both the Winter AIMSweb and STAR User Groups.  Each of these work groups focused on how to best leverage the winter benchmark data to make informed instructional decisions.  Participants reviewed the benefits of using student, classroom, and grade-level growth data as a way to promote dialogue about improving the effectiveness of core instruction and interventions.  Data Coordinators from the CNYRIC guided the group through the appropriate growth data available in each system and provided practical examples of how to facilitate effective meetings using the reports. Attendees also shared their own strategies and structures with peers from the region.
Core instruction drives RTI efforts of local districts
During the afternoon RTI PLC, Data Coordinators provided the opportunity for over 60 attendees to consider the levels of instructional support that exists in their own districts.  As an extension of the focus on Tier 1 during the fall meeting, the session began with examples of how core instruction has driven the RTI work of multiple districts this year.  The West Genesee Central School District shared ways in which they are using different tools to organize and share assessment and intervention data within a school, making powerful information more accessible to teachers.  The work of the Onondaga Central School District RTI Committee was also highlighted, with a focus on their extensive work to identify K-12 core instructional approaches for ELA.  Data Coordinators then facilitated table discussions around the key elements and challenges of Tier 2 support structures and interventions.  This focus will carry over to the June 5 meeting.
