*Illuminate EducationChristopher E BalowCrafting a Comprehensive MTSS Assessment ProgramResearch indicates that MTSS implementations across the country have largely failed in producing significant student performance gains. One of the major flaws identified in MTSS implementations is the lack a comprehensive, balanced assessment program to inform decision-making. This session will provide a systematic approach to this process with the goal of creating an intelligent, efficient and cost-effective system of assessments designed from an MTSS perspective that supports stakeholder decision-making at all levels of the organization. This session will lay the foundation for the development a 3-year plan for implementing a balanced assessment system by understanding the components of a comprehensive balanced assessment system, reviewing current assessment system, completing a gap analysis and analyzing current specific assessments for quality and effectiveness.

We’ll look at how PALS data can be used by teachers to understand each student’s current stages of reading and spelling development, and why it’s important to target skills within the context of these stages. Teachers who do this well are more likely to provide effective intervention for readers who are at risk for a reading difficulty, and also strong, differentiated reading and spelling instruction for *all* students.Teacher | Trainer | Other Awesome | Site Leader | District LeaderDemo Presentation | NEW UserAssessment | Data Analysis & Reporting | MTSS / Whole Child / SEL

Ariya Education SolutionsKimberly Saguilan & Debra RussellMake "Data-Driven" Mean Something at Your School(s)Move from Common Assessments to a Plan for Comprehensive Instructional Leadership

Even with the most polished set of common assessments, "data-driven" is a hollow phrase if not paired with comprehensive PD and strong, site-based instructional leadership. This starts with expectations around data-for admin-teams, teachers and students--along with a plan for establishing a data-driven culture. Find out how one school implemented pacing guides and weekly data reflections in conjunction with Illuminate benchmarks to make transformational growth in a single year. Walk away with sample plans for ongoing teacher PD, guides for structuring conversations with your teachers, and rubrics to gauge the culture in your classrooms---to make "data-driven" a concrete and accountable practice for all.

Darnall Charter SchoolDr. Consuelo Manriquez, Mary Gonzalez, & Christina TheokasFive Practices for Improving the Success of Latino Students (Book)High schools are a ubiquitous part of American adolescent life and culture and are critically important public institutions. They provide the bridge to students’ futures and have the capacity to change the trajectory of students’ lives. Unfortunately, the data shows stagnant outcomes for high schoolers over time and persistent gaps in achievement for students from different racial ethnic groups. NCUST studied four successful urban high schools serving predominantly Latino students to more deeply understand their school design and strategies that led to their success. We identified five key practices we will discuss in this session. The principals of the four schools will share specific examples of implementation at their school and how they overcame barriers and challenges to academic success and postsecondary readiness for their students. The book the schools are featured in, “Five Practices for Improving the Success of Latino Students: A Guide for Secondary Leaders” will be available during the conference.Other Awesome | Site Leader | District LeaderPanel SessionEquity & Access | Leadership & Culture
