Overview Paul Revere Behavior Response to Intervention (RTI)

Andy Hanson (2
nd grade teacher), Marissa Monick (school social worker) and Wendy Michelson (school nurse) gave an overview of the Behavior Response to Intervention (RTI) model for behavioral support that is now in its 2nd year of implementation at Paul Revere, on behalf of the behavior RTI team. 

The behavior RTI model uses 3 tiers of behavioral intervention. The first tier includes behavioral strategies for all students. Based on a universal screening, students are identified that may need additional behavioral support (tier 2). These students are referred to the student assistance support team that then develops an action plan for the student and follows up with the student in 4-6 weeks. If the student still needs additional support after this period, a tier 3 action plan is developed. If the behavior RTI model is working correctly, only 10-15% of students should be referred to tier 2 and only 10-5% of students should need tier 3 intervention. The RTI team will be collecting and using data about student behavior and performance to further refine the model.

The current focus of the behavior RTI team for tier 1 intervention, is to develop a socio-economic curriculum for all students, to develop a school-wide behavioral plan and to implement proactive classroom management strategies.

  1. Community meeting to present proposed plans for Prop A renovation 

Erika Ehmsen presented the flyer for the community meeting that will be held on Thursday 1/16/14, in which PLUM architects and the senior project manager of SFUSD’s prop A bond program will present the architectural plans for prop A funded renovations at Paul Revere.

Balanced score card/ budget development

  • Stacey Afllick presented the school planning timeline for school year 2014-15.  Important dates on this calendar:
    • February 21: preliminary budget allocations & central staffing distributed to school sites
    • February/March: schools develop the budget and Balanced Score Card (BSC) and hold a community meeting to gather input from the community about what should be included in the budget and BSC. (The Balanced Scorecard is a document that outlines goals for improving academic performance and addresses how funds provided to the school will be used to achieve these goals).
    • Saturday, March 1: school planning retreat-  during this meeting tailored information will be provided to PR’s SSC about how to develop the budget and BSC
    • March 28: budget submitted to the assistant superintendent and budget office, BSC submitted to the assistant superintendent for review.  The budget and BSC are to be approved and signed off by the SSC and principal prior to submission.
  • To review and develop the BSC, the SSC will hold the following meetings:
    • February 5: regular SSC meeting 
    • February 12: extra meeting to further develop the SSC and prepare list of potential funding priorities to solicit community feedback on
    • February 21: African American Heritage night – Stacey Afflick will introduce the BSC and will ask parents to indicate their funding priorities on a “heat map” that will be posted on the wall and/ or provided on tables (place mats?)
    • February 26: parent teacher conferences- parents will be asked to provide their feedback about BSC funding priorities during check-in
    • March 5th: regular SSC meeting- parents invited to join to receive feedback about the funding priorities selected by parents
  • Stacey will provide the current draft of the BSC to SSC members so they can start their review and formulating questions
Impact and Innovation grants
  • Grant money can be rolled over to next year: there will be no restrictions on how the money will be spent. 
  • The SSC will discuss how the grant money can be spent after we have received the preliminary budget allocations, to determine what funding gaps can be filled using these funds, e.g. the extra programs/contracts that are currently in place at PR.
  • One consideration is whether these funds should be used to fund activities and programs that earned the grants. Another possibility would be to use these funds to purchase data collection software to support the behavior RTI program.
