Some students will respond to the Tier I level of support but will still exhibit some specific difficulties. These students may be demonstrating academic and/or behavioral deficits that will require more intensive supports. Tier II interventions can be effective in working with students at-risk for academic and/or behavioral concerns.
This training will expose participants to Tier II small group interventions. These are strategies and procedures put into place to support a group of students who display similar needs or deficits as identified through the data. The strategies that will be discussed include Check In Check Out (CICO), Social and Academic Instructional Groups, and Check and Connect. There will be a particular focus on CICO, with time provided for teams to begin planning this intervention.
