Barrier Busting: Implementation Structured Support Day
*FREE for teams who have previously attended Building Your System.

May 1, 2020 | 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
One of the greatest barriers with NDMTSS implementation is time for leadership team problem solving and action planning

The purpose of this session is to provide leadership teams the time to:

  • Revisit the work schools have been engaging in.
  • Assess current reality and identify obstacles for improvement.
  • Receive assistance with n ext steps from consultants and other schools.

Presenter: Shannon Harken
Shannon works as an RtI/MTSS Professional Learning and Leadership Consultant (PLLC) for Heartland AEA 11.

Based on her experiences, teaching background, and knowledge from experts in the field, Harken has spent the last 15+ years co-authoring and training MTSS modules in the areas of consensus building, infrastructure development, and implementation to coaches and numerous school-based teams across the country.

Participant Feedback
"I enjoyed Shannon showing some of the different assessment tools so you have an idea of what it looks like and showing us a couple of videos so we could see the assessment in practice."

"Excellent - can't wait to get back and tell others and implement what was discussed into my room."

"Shannon has provided us with a huge library of resources to use. It will come to great use when sharing documents with staff."

Foundations of Reading Participants
"The format that Wayne uses to present provides LOTS of useful information, coupled with an environment for us to collaborate. I never feel like it is a sit-n-git type of experience in the MTSS sessions we've attended. Data Review day was no different!"

"Thank you again. We are moving in the right direction. Out of all the "initiatives" we take on, this process has the most opportunity to significantly change what we do for student learning."

Data Review Day Participants
"This was probably the best session (they are all good) yet! We really got a chance to play with our data, see where we are at, and figure out what we need to do next... all with guidance. It felt very personalized even though there were multiple groups present. Being able to highlight our data and crunch some numbers gave us a bit of validation that we are on the right track this year and where we need to go next. I am very confident that we will continue to effectively implement and build on our pathway for reading. Math is going to be a piece of cake!"

Evaluating Your System Participants
"This has been a wonderful experience the past two years. I have learned a great deal that will help our students find more academic success. We have seen amazing growth so far in just one year. I look forward to even more success for our students as they transition into junior high, high school, and into the real world."

"This day was amazing in that we were given time to work on our data and review it with expertise around to help with any questions."

Interactive NDMTSS Map in beginning stages.
If you're interested to see who has been involved in 2019-2020 NDMTSS professional learning opportunities - here is something we've been working on.

An interactive map can provide a way to connect alike districts, share resources, raise awareness, show program impact, and more.

What you see here is a simple starting point, but we will continue researching to find the best solution to grow this idea.
