Response to Intervention (academic & behavior) in Maine

Hello Everyone, What a great conference. I have been asked to try to determine the level of interest in a regional SWIS facilitator training. This is a great opportunity to make SWIS more accessable here in Maine! Please let me know if you are intereseted in such a training and I will compile a list to send along.




 SWIS faciliators go through a 3 day training in the following areas:


  1. How to use SWIS
  2. How to train others to use SWIS
  3. How to respond to the most common problems
  4. How to help teams use SWIS information for effective decision-making
  5. How to maintain SWIS use across normal school perturbations.

SWIS Facilitators are selected by local school/district/county/region/state personnel. SWIS Facilitators have been most effective if they come to training with the following:

  1. A clear role and dedicated time (e.g. FTE) to work with multiple schools to build capacity in the use of information to improve the local social climate. On average, a SWIS Facilitator dedicates 40 hours per school over an academic year during the first year a school adopts SWIS. Time to support a school after the first year, typically drops dramatically. SWIS Facilitators work with as few as 5 schools, and as many as 30.
  2. Experience in presenting workshops/training to teachers and/or administrators.
  3. Computer skills that include use of a word processing program (e.g., Microsft Word), and use of a spread sheet (e.g., Excel)
  4. Experience working on the development of individual student and/or school-wide behavior support systems.
  5. The ability and interest in helping other people (especially school-based teams) become more successful.

I would definitely be interested in this training. I did some training about 7 or 8 years ago in Illinois with a Maine team, but would love a refresher.
Hi Therese (this is how my daughter's name is spelled but we call her Resa for short). I already sent in the list but that doesn't mean you can't join in if they get a training in locally. I will return to this page when I learn of any details and let you know about it, OK? Pat
Therese, I have the information for the RI SWIS training. Details are attached. pat
Yes, very interested
Hi Paula, I already sent in the list but that doesn't mean you can't join in if they get a training in locally. I will return to this page when I learn of any details and let you know about it, OK? Pat
I also have interest if the training is in Maine or NH. My participation would depend greatly on the details of location, timing, cost, etc. No need to respond about the list, as I see you have already submitted, but if there is room to join you could let me know via email once the details are worked out. Thanks again for all you're doing for us!
Will do Tonya. When I get details I'll let everyone know. pat
