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.

Thanks!

Jen

 

 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.
