Tackling Tier 2: A Practical Approach

Highest Degree of Primary Presenter

Doctorate Degree

Presentation Abstract

More and more students are coming to school lacking the appropriate pro-social and self-regulation skills needed to be successful in the classroom. This can lead to behaviors that are disruptive to the learning environment. In this session, participants will learn how two Title I schools in Colquitt County, Okaplico Elementary and Stringfellow Elementary, are tackling Tier 2 for behavior. This session will include an overview of the low-cost interventions currently being used in Colquitt County with positive results (The Behavior Education Program: Check-in/Check-out and SkillStreaming), and how to get started with the interventions, collect and review data to assess the effectiveness of the interventions, and successfully guide students through the fade-out process. Both interventions have a home/community component and participants will learn how to maximize outcomes by including the home/community components. Participants will also learn how the schools identify and match student need with the best fit for intervention. Participants will leave with practical tips and applications for what is working at Okapilco and Stringfellow, examples of forms and documents being used, teacher and student testimonials of “glows” and “grows,” and a better understanding of how to initiate and maintain these Tier 2 interventions.
