Acadience/DIBELS Progress Monitoring Cohort 1
Event is Full: Accepting Wait List Registrations
Acadience Reading, formerly known as DIBELS, is a universal screening and progress monitoring assessment that measures the acquisition of early literacy skills in kindergarten through sixth grade. The assessment is comprised of six brief measures that function as indicators of the essential skills that every child must master to become a proficient reader. These measures are used to regularly monitor the development of early literacy skills in order to provide timely instructional support and prevent the occurrence of later reading difficulties. (www.acadiencelearning.org) The Acadience Reading two-day progress monitoring professional learning series will provide participants with in depth knowledge around the Big Ideas of Reading with an emphasis on phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, phonics, and fluency. Participants will receive training and practice on all Acadience measures to use for progress monitoring students. Progress monitoring using Acadience measures provides the assessor with valid data to analyze how well a student is responding to current intervention when implemented with fidelity. Previous training in research/evidence based interventions is preferred. Participants must attend both sessions of the cohort to receive full training and receive CTLE credits.

As part of an initiative from the Special Education Office, we would like to continue your involvement during 2019-2020 school year with follow-up Math DBI support. This support would allow you to dive deeper into data-based individualization (DBI) and how the assessment and instructional components of DBI should be implemented in your school. Your involvement would include the following: ? One (1) webinar in September 2019 to review the year's schedule. ? One (1) in-person session on October 11, 2019 at The Peck Slip school to review DBI implementation plans, discuss math interventions, and review screening and progress monitoring implementation. ? One (1) school-based observation session in November, December, OR March. During this observation, we would meet with you and other team members to discuss school-specific questions and concerns about the implementation of DBI (e.g., How do we analyze screening data? How do we maximize the Tier 2 instruction for students?). The observation is scheduled to provide an expert in assessment or instruction to meet the needs of you and your school. ? One (1) webinar in January 2020 to review DBI readiness checklist and review decision making within DBI. ?

Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI)
Spaces Remaining: 18
Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI) is a 6 day nationally-certified course that is evidenced-based. Research has shown that LSCI reduces incidents and suspensions, improves attendance, and supports students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment. Participants will learn how to de-escalate students in distress, discover the underlying cause(s) of the problem behavior, help students gain insight into their responsibility in the situation, teach and practice replacement behavior(s) for the next time the stressful situation occurs, prepare the student for return to class, and afterwards share the plan with staff. Crisis intervention teams and capacity builders (administrators, deans, counselors, clinicians, teachers and paraprofessionals) are recommended for this training. It is highly suggested that team members attend together. Certification requirements: Attendance at all 6 sessions is required from 8:30 to 3:00. All participants are required to take two competency tests for certification: A multiple-choice exam and a role-play test. Participants must commit to attending all six sessions and to completing the two required assessments.

Acadience/DIBELS Progress Monitoring Cohort 2
Spaces Remaining: 9
Acadience Reading, formerly known as DIBELS, is a universal screening and progress monitoring assessment that measures the acquisition of early literacy skills in kindergarten through sixth grade. The assessment is comprised of six brief measures that function as indicators of the essential skills that every child must master to become a proficient reader. These measures are used to regularly monitor the development of early literacy skills in order to provide timely instructional support and prevent the occurrence of later reading difficulties. (www.acadiencelearning.org) The Acadience Reading two-day progress monitoring professional learning series will provide participants with in depth knowledge around the Big Ideas of Reading with an emphasis on phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, phonics, and fluency. Participants will receive training and practice on all Acadience measures to use for progress monitoring students. Progress monitoring using Acadience measures provides the assessor with valid data to analyze how well a student is responding to current intervention when implemented with fidelity. Previous training in research/evidence based interventions is preferred. Participants must attend both sessions of the cohort to receive full training and receive CTLE credits.
