    implementation of intervention
  Intervention Tier III: How
 • Goals for the interventions must be set. Timelines for
   implementation must be outlined and evaluation criteria
   established to determine if these goals have been met. …
 • In accordance with the specified timelines for completion of the
   interventions, the Teacher Support Team must review the
   success of the interventions and make a determination as to
   whether:
     • A. The interventions were successful… ;
     • B. Additional interventions will be developed and implemented…; or
     • C. The interventions did not meet the child’s needs; …

   • TST Role –
      • this is the person responsible for the data that is entered into the
        Intervention screen
      • new role being created for the lead TST of each school
Intervention Tier III: Which Students
•   Students will be populated on the screen in August
    according to the following criteria:
      1.   Grades 1-3: A student has failed one grade (the previous school
           year)
      2.   Grades 4-12: A student has failed two grades (the previous
           school year plus one other year prior)
      3.   A student failed either of the preceding two grades and has
           been suspended or expelled for more than twenty days in the
           current school year.
•   Students who do not make adequate progress following
    Tiers I & II should be referred to TST and can be pulled
    into the screens by the district users
             Criteria 1 and 2 Students
    •      For the first two criteria:
               1. Grades 1-3: A student has failed one grade
               2. Grades 4-12: A student has failed two grades
•       MSIS will pull from Month 9 of the previous school year any
        student who has met the criteria above IF their SPED Indicator
        is set to N (new exception to this rule is the Language Speech
        ONLY students are populated or pulled into the screen if they
        met the criteria)
•       MSIS will populate these students at the beginning of each
        school year
•       Users have 20 school days from the beginning of school to
        refer these students to TST for intervention
                 Criteria 3 Students
    •      For the third criteria:
          3. A student failed either of the two preceding grades and has been
               suspended or expelled for more than twenty days in the current school
               year.
•       MSIS will run a procedure each weekend to check for any
        suspensions or expulsions to populate these students to the
        screen
•       Users should check at the beginning of each week for any
        of these students
•       Won’t see any of these students before the 20th day school
        is in session (theoretically)

          Intervention NOTE
• Intervention will follow a student if they move
  from district to district or school to school
• EX: If a student in District A fails grade 3 at the
  end of the school year, then the student moves to
  District B over the summer, the student will show
  up on District B’s Intervention screen
          Intervention NOTE
• The number of days for suspension or expulsion

                        •   Yes – Student is referred to Child
                            Study
                        •   No
         Intervention Tab: Entering Data

• Intervention Success? NOTE:
   •   Yes – Student remains in Regular ED - - user
       should select this choice if student’s intervention
       was a success and the student will remain in

       further data for the student on the Intervention
       screen
   •   Yes – Student is referred to Child Study - user
       should select this choice if the student’s
       intervention was a success but the student is still
       going to be referred to LSC (maybe the parent
       requested referral to the LSC, etc.)
   •   No - user selects this choice if the intervention
       was not a success, the student will now be
       referred to LSC (Local Survey Committee)
Data Entry Note for LS Students
• For LS only students, you will ONLY be able
  to enter data in the Referred to TST Date,
  TST Decision Date, and Intervention
  Success? Data fields.
• You can NOT refer the LS students to LSC.

                        Success? either “Yes – Student
                        is referred to Child Study” OR
                        “No”:
                      • This will activate the LSC
                        Referral Date data field – when
                        you enter this date (can’t be
                        before the TST Decision Date),
                        you would want to notify your
                        District SPED Office that you
                        are referring a student to them
                        for testing
                      • The District SPED role will then
                        enter the next five data elements
                        if needed
Intervention Tab: Student Referred to LSC
                   • The following three data fields have a
                     Yes or No answer in the drop down
                     box – everyone defaults to null
                       • Parent Permission to Test – user selects
                         yes if the parent has given permission
                         to test, select no if the parent declines
                         permission
                       • Eligibility Decision – user selects Yes
                         if the student has tested eligible or No

                         permission for the student to be served
                         or No if the parent declines permission
                       • A Yes in ALL THREE data fields is
                         required to allow access to the next two
                         data fields (Eligibility and IEP Dates)
Intervention Tab: Student Referred to LSC
• After the user enters the
  Eligibility Date (can’t be before
  the LSC Referral Date) and IEP
  Date (can’t be before the
  Eligibility Date) AND a MSD
  (Monthly Student Data) or DSD
  (Daily Student Data) file is
  submitted to MSIS to update the
  student’s SPED indicator to Y,
  these two dates will be populated
  on the Student Update screen
• NOTE: Once the student is
  indicated as being served by
  SPED, MSIS will begin checking
  the DSD and MSD files to make
  sure that you set the SPED
  Indicator to Y
        SPED Data Entry Note
• The screen will default the Parent Permission to
  Test, Eligibility Decision, and Parent Permission to
  Serve to Y for LS students. These are read-only
  fields and can not be changed.
• On the compliance report, when MSIS first runs the
  procedure, the Elg and IEP dates will have an N if
  there were no dates to pull from the Student Update
  screen (some have not rolled their data at this point
  and others have rolled but have not entered data).
  Once you update the Student Update screen, the
  dates will pull into the Intervention screen.

                                          Referral Student




• Once data is entered for a Referral student on the Intervention
  tab, the Referral student will now show up when the
  Intervention radio button is selected
• Users will not be able to query for the student by selecting the
  Referral radio button
• MSIS will place a check under the appropriate referral column
  to indicate the selection that was made previously as to why the
  student was referred
          New to Intervention
• After Month 1 is complete AND the Summer
  Activity screen has been populated, a procedure will
  run to remove these “no-shows” from the
  Intervention screen – if the student returns at a later
  date, the user can query and pull the student into the
  Intervention screen
• The weekly procedure will check for dropouts to
  remove them from the screen
       New to Intervention cont.
• The weekly procedure will check for students whose
  ownership has changed, once MSIS receives an E
  code from the new school, the student will move to
  the new school’s intervention screen (NOTE: on the
  Student Intervention Report an * will denote those
  students whose ownership has changed but who does
  not yet have a new enrollment code from the school
  that now owns them.)
• The weekly procedure will also check for any change
  in disability, if the primary disability changes from
  LS, the student will be removed from the screen
      New to Intervention cont.
• L/S Indicator for students whose primary disability is
  Language Speech
• New legends at the bottom of each report to explain
  the report
                   Q&A
• Who should oversee the data entry on the
  Intervention Screen? The Lead TST of each
  school.
• Why is the screen being assigned to the District
  SPED Role? Many SPED District Offices assist
  Regular Ed with Intervention and if a student is
  referred to LSC, the SPED user will need to enter
  the data elements after that.
                   Q&A
• Why do I not have any students on my school’s
  Intervention screen? Check one of the Promote
  reports (Reports-> Student Data->
  Promotions), if you see zero under the Non-
  Promoted column, then ALL your students
  were promoted and they did not meet the
  criteria the procedure uses to pull students into
  the screen. You can pull students into the
  screen by following the instructions on the
  Referral slides.
                          Q&A
Interventions are not:
   • Accommodations or modifications
   • Simply alternate settings
   • Existing placements or programs that are not specific to the student’s
     needs
   • Special Education placement
   • Interagency referrals
   • Assessments, evaluations, or screenings
   • Classroom Observations
   • Advice and consultation contacts that are not child specific, not targeted to
     a specific behavior, or that do not generate data that can be graphed or
     tabled to show change over time
   • Parent contacts
   • Retention
   • Home work
   • Suspension
                   Q&A
• Why does ESY not count toward
  Intervention? Extended School Year (ESY)
  is beyond the normal school year of the local
  district… In other words, this is not a
  sufficiently regular education setting to allow
  for proper intervention. It can be a beginning
  but the student should at least be monitored
  in the new school year.
                   Q&A
• Why does Summer School not count
  toward Intervention? Summer School is
  also beyond the normal school year of the
  local district… Most summer school
  programs are not designed for a specific need
  but rather to repeat a specific course. Again,
  it can be a beginning but the student should
  at least be monitored in the new school year.
                    Q&A
• Why is the repeating of a grade for a student
  not intervention – even if they are making
  straight A’s the second time around? Policy
  states that intervention is a current action that
  differs from the activities that normally occur in
  the child’s regular education program, therefore
  even though the student is now excelling in their
  repeated grade, they should be monitored to
  ensure that the progress continues.
                 Q&A
• Why do we have an Intervention Create
  Date? The screen will be populated by a
  procedure that is run on the weekend. The
  users will need to know when that procedure
  populated the student on the Intervention
  screen.
                   Q&A
• Where does MSIS pull the Referred to
  Intervention Date? For those students that
  meet criteria 1 or 2, MSIS will pull the first
  day of school from the District Events
  Calendar (Modules ->Calendar ->District
  Events)
           Intervention Reports
• MSIS will provide two reports that are generated
  from data entered on the Intervention Screen:
   • Student Intervention Report – alpha roster per school of
     what is seen on the screen
   • Student Intervention Compliance Report – alpha roster
     per school that lists Y and N for compliance for specific
     data elements
