Data Warehouse Facilitates RTI PLC

Opportunity to Explore, Discuss, and Collaborate
More than 75 educators attend day-long event featuring AIMSweb and STAR

The CNYRIC’s Data Warehouse recently hosted the third Response to Intervention (RTI) work session of the school year.  Over 75 educators attended the morning’s AIMSweb and STAR user groups which provided the opportunity for teams and individuals from the region to explore key data reports from the assessment systems, dialogue with peers about effective data meetings, and discuss how AIMSweb and STAR can continue to help improve instruction.  The CNYRIC’s Data Coordinators facilitated conversations and offered insight on how to best leverage the assessment tools and results.  A key theme that emerged from the morning’s work centered around the importance of collaboration by all staff members around the use of the information and data. 
The afternoon RTI Professional Learning Community began with presentations from the Oriskany and Fabius-Pompey Central School Districts. Both shared insights about  current district initiatives to support RTI, including specific attention to how data is used to better target instructional needs of students.  These district shares are a key part of the PLC, providing the audience with the chance to hear about the successes and struggles of initiatives that are often similar across the region.  The focus of the PLC then turned to reflection and dialogue about the key elements of Tier 3 support.  The RTI PLC will continue to focus its attention on a wide range of topics in 2015-16, including increased discussion of math, more in-depth exploration of appropriate intervention strategies, and specific work time centered on district specific case studies.
The Data Warehouse team has elicited specific feedback from attendees, who include administrators, instructional specialists, teachers, and school psychologists, to identify areas of focus for the next year of User Groups and PLCs.  The team is excited to design a structure for future sessions that best meet the needs of attendees and make for meaningful and rewarding work.
