                                 events scheduled this year at CESA #3. We will begin

                                 Monitoring on March 22nd. This series is being offered at no
charge to districts. District teams should include administrators, classroom teachers, special
education teachers and other student services personnel. These sessions have been scheduled
around REACh sessions that compliment these activities and other sessions being offered
in the Professional Development Consortium.

Beginning SIMS Training
The first SIMS session is scheduled for October 12th. Student Intervention Monitoring
System (SIMS) is a software program designed to monitor interventions and help educators
provide additional support for children. SIMS is a systematic way to document and share
information between teachers and to monitor student progress over time. This tool can be
used to promote dialogue around student needs amongst teams of educators. The use of
this program fits nicely into a district’s problem-solving or RtI team, provide a vehicle for
documentation of assessment and service provision for Title I Services, and other educational
initiatives requiring documentation. A district team is encouraged to attend. There are a
number of training opportunities offered throughout the year to gradually build team skills
around this documentation process.
