    Missouri SW-PBS will host a series of 6 sessions for schools that have completed Tier 1 training and are ready to transition to developing Tier 1 interventions for SW-PBS framework. During these sessions, teams receive an overview of Tier 2 purposes, research, and intervention examples. They assess fidelity of Tier 1 implementation and determine their school's readiness for developing a Tier 2 system. As an initial outcome, the Tier 2 team develops a systematic process for identifying students at-risk of developing problem behaviors, which includes use of data decision rules and a teacher nomination process. Teams establish procedures to determine the function of behavior in order to match student difficulties with appropriate interventions. The use of universal screening instruments is considered.

    To learn the Tier 2 process, teams work toward implementation of Check-In, Check-Out (CICO), and Social Skills Intervention Groups (SSIG) both of which are research-based interventions. Clear entry and exit criteria are established for the two interventions, and data to be collected for progress monitoring is identified. Teams provide professional development to ensure all school staff understand the interventions and their role in implementing the interventions including promoting generalization of skills across multiple settings. Families receive information about the purpose of the intervention and their role in supporting their child's participation. By the end of Tier 2 training, teams create data rules for making decisions about individual student progress monitoring data and develop plans to fully implement the intervention the following year.

    *Participants should bring a device capable of accessing digital documents via the internet (Chromebooks have difficulty accessing UCM Guest Wifi). Access to the internet will be provided via UCM Guest Wifi access.
