February 6th and 7th, members of the Murfreesboro City Schools family were involved in five presentations at the Tennessee Department of Education Partners In Education Conference.  The following presentations were made:

Toolkit to Improve School Climate - Kim Frank (3 sessions)

Focusing on the Continuum of Services for Preschool Students - Roxana Dove, Kelley Heflin, Lynn Hood, & Kelly Blanchard

A Positive Impact on School Climate Using RTI2-Behavior - Amanda Adams & Kim Frank (2 sessions)

Improving School Culture Through Response to Instruction and Intervention for Behavior (RTI2-B) - Angela Huff & Amanda Turnbo

Successful Implementation of RTI2 in Murfreesboro City Schools - Jess Grayum & Tara Bowker

Congratulations to the schools whose work has  been acknowledged by the Tennessee Behavior Project for their RTI2 B implementation.  Report by Kim Frank.

Over the past few months, the Tennessee Department of Education has been conducting a qualitative research study to understand how RTI2 has affected the learning disability identification process and whether the implementation of RTI2 has let do different outcomes in terms of determining eligibility.  As part of that work, the Department of Education visited Scales Elementary School and observed their data meetings.  They also interviewed Caresa Dodson and Angela Fairchild to discuss district-level RTI2 practices.  All of this was integrated into the department’s latest report, Assessing Progress:  Four Years of Learnings from RTI2 Implementation in Tennessee. That report was released on February 5th in an event at the Music City Center.   According to the state, Scales informed the “look fors” regarding effective implementation of intervention as well as being the basis for the “Robust Support at the District Level” case study portion of the report. Report by Caresa Dodson and Maria Johnson.
