Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early
Literacy Skills (DIBELS)

 •   Brought to DASD roughly 5+ years ago.
 •   Used for universal screening of academic
     concerns (Reading only)
 •   Intended to be used 3x/year to quickly screen all
 •   Eventually all students K-6 were being screened
     in Reading (intended to be a quicker screening
     than the DRA).
 •   Replaced after only a few years with AIMSweb
l   Was full implemented for the 2007-2008 school year.
l   Replaced DIBELS but screened in a similar way for Reading,
    yet, added the MAZE component.
l   Allowed for benchmarking to occur in Math.
l   Teachers now had the data immediately at their fingertips by
    going to AIMSweb.com
l   Assisted in discussions at Building and Grade Level Team
l   Used in parent conferences as a graphical representation of
    their child’s performance.
l   CONCERN: Not diagnostic…. Provided somewhat limited
    information …. Only really an indicator.
•   Product of Renaissance Learning
•   Will effectively replace AIMSweb for Universal
    Screening (however elements of AIMSweb will
•   Various components: STAR Early Literacy,
    STAR Reading, STAR Math (STAR Enterprise
    coming soon)
Examples of District Data
Examples of District Data
Response to Instruction and
Intervention Plan….The Beginning

l   RtII Committee was formed and completed
    LIU training with support from school
l   RtII committee met on a regular basis to
    review district data and discuss
l   Intervention Specialist (IST) worked with
    building staff to develop building intervention
Response to Instruction and

l   RtII Committee met to develop a District RtII Plan
    –   Set a definition of RtII as a District
    –   Define a Purpose as a District
    –   Define and Outline Tiers of Instruction and Intervention
    –   Assessment Map
    –   POD/PLC Agendas
    –   Parent Information
    –   Intervention Flow Chart/Behavior Flow Chart
    –   Common Behavior Forms
    –   Continuous development of Secondary RtII
Response to Instruction and

l   Roll out the Plan and Follow it!
    –   Each building Principal and Interventionist will roll
        out the updated district plan in multiple settings
    –   Training provided for instructors of specific
    –   Intervention Specialist and teachers will refer to
        plan during POD and Collaborative Meetings
    –   RtII Committee will continue to meet and update
        plan as needed
What’s Next:

l   Continue to inform parents of universal
    screening results, progress monitoring, and
    intervention plan
l   Fidelity in Tier III Assessments
l   Parent notification of support offered
l   Communication
    – Wiki and E-Chalk
IN Conclusion: OUR GOAL is …..

l   To create an
    Educational System
    that focuses on
    success for ALL
