Onalaska High School's Multi Level System of Support 3-11-15
Jared Shaffner, principal of Onalaska High School, shares how his school has developed an Early Warning System to drive team problem-solving, develop interventions, and communicate most effectively to PLCs throughout the building. He also describes the process used to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions.
Math Intervention Webinar 7: Monitor the Progress of Students
In this webinar, we present the recommendations of the IES guide for monitoring the progress of students receiving interventions. This recommendation includes using both general outcome measures and curriculum embedded assessments to provide a full picture of student growth. We also emphasize that progress monitoring is more than probes and graphs: It's a collaborative process for data-based decision-making. New Berlin Math Coaches Susan Marschman, Debra Moore, and Trudy Wahlen share their district's implementation of these recommendations.
Math Intervention Webinar 2: Include Motivational Strategies
In this webinar, we present the research behind motivation in math and strategies for creating conditions that support development of positive "mathematical selves." Jackie Amlong, Patty Fitzgerald, & Kari Niemeyer, Oregon School District Math Interventionists, discuss how they develop students' growth mindset and create an environment that's conducive to learning. Math consultant Lorna Vazquez shares how to engage students in goal setting by creating clear road maps for learning.
Let's Talk About It - Pewaukee's Journey to Improve System Wide Collaboration
Collaboration is an essential element for developing and sustaining effective multi-level systems of support, yet the structure (e.g., schedules) and culture (perception of roles, use of data) of many schools are still better suited for isolated adult practice.

Math Intervention Webinar 3: Content of Interventions
In this webinar, we present the research on the CONTENT of mathematic interventions: Just what DO we intervene on with students who are struggling? Featured presenters include Karen Stuttgen, Interventionist in the Fall Creek School District, Mary Ann Modrak, Math Recovery Specialist & CESA 10 Math Coach, and Michelle Parks, CESA 10 Math Consultant.

In this webinar, we present the research on the use of visual representations in interventions. Guest presenters Dina Mendola (Math Recovery coach) and Jamie Neary (Cudahy SD teacher) share strategies for using multiple representations to build student understanding and fluency with whole and rational numbers. A follow up video from Ken Davis, DPI Math consultant, shows how visual representations can be extended for use at the middle and high school level.
Implementing Your System
Implementing a culturally responsive multi-level system of support enables schools to help ALL students become college or career ready. Every school has different needs and goals, so no two journeys will be the same. That being said, it is often helpful to see examples of how other schools have undertaken this work. The videos in this collection show a wide range of approaches, topics, and areas, so you can get a glimpse of how the framework can be tailored to each school.
