Strand 1: Data-Informed Decision Making
Through three one-day data-informed decision-making professional learning events, division leadership teams will build on the work begun during the Exploration & Installation series. Teams will refine effective data meeting structures and develop an understanding of the Division Implementation Team’s role in supporting school-based teams by providing access to data for problem-solving and implementation of evidence-based practices; develop systems that support staff in efficient implementation of instructional practices; and explore the process for selecting evidence-based practices for teaching academic, behavior, and mental wellness skills.
In this session, Division Implementation Teams will develop an effective data-informed decision-making process starting with identifying the data sources needed for the development of an integrated data dashboard and efficient data meeting structures for division and school use.
Intended Audience: Cohort 7 division teams and any Cohorts 1-6 division team that needs to revisit the DIDM strand
- Develop team meeting foundations for effective decision making;
- Complete a data audit for successful implementation;
- Develop action items for an implementation plan that provides division and building leadership teams with access to an integrated data dashboard that includes fidelity AND student outcome data;
- Analyze data to identify area(s) of focus for problem solving
- Select or revise a clear process for data-informed decision making with a focus on teaching and learning
Intended Audience: Cohort 7 division teams and Cohorts 1-6 division teams who have identified data-informed decision making as a continued area for growth.
Building upon Session A, Division Leadership Teams assess their division’s progress in developing an integrated data dashboard, practice a clear process for data-informed decision making using data from their context, develop an action plan for providing professional learning and coaching at the school level, and analyze a “new” practice using the VTSS Selection of Evidence-Based Practices Tool.
