Summary

As the school leader, you’re often enlisted to bring about change in your school, whether it is academic, behavioral, school culture or all three. Superintendents may also ask school leaders the additional layer of collecting data on school improvement. SO while bringing about this change can you also proves the data you collected to prove that change was made please?? People from all sources will be happy to tell you WHAT things need to be changed, in fact they may be talking about it in the teachers’ lounge, at the local café, or in homes in the community. HOW is often where school leaders find themselves looking for some answers. Data collection methods need to be easy, straight forward and to the point, otherwise teachers will use them for a short period of time and then move on to something else. During this presentation, school leaders will be led in a practical discussion of “how” you can successfully collect data, implement interventions, and show change in student’s behaviors. The session will include demonstration of data collection methods for behaviors, effective interventions, take away data collection forms, and real life stories of students whose school experience has been changed by using data collection. This session will be valuable to school leaders looking for a practical, research based approached for collecting data to show evidence of change in behavioral improvements within their school. Teachers may also benefit from attending this session as they will be able to collect student and classroom data that can then guide and aid them in classroom management and instruction.

Evidence

This presentation will use the "Specialized Classroom Managment" method of data collection techniques based off 30 years of research and data management with youth who have mental health, special education, juvenile justice involvment and behavioral/emotional disorders.
