Developing Pathways for Academics - Year 1


Course Description

This training, intended for a leadership team, is designed to utilize the NDMTSS Essential Components to solve problems at the school, classroom, and student level.  Emphasis will be given to translating current educational research into practice to help schools maximize resources and outcomes for all students, including those with disabilities.  Examples of data systems for universal screening and progress monitoring will be identified, as well as specific interventions and curricula to address problems at a systems level. 

Objectives:

  1. Identify current gaps in student outcomes based on grade level data
  2. Evaluate appropriate pathways for students to increase academic achievement
  3. Develop strategies for solving problems at increasingly larger levels
