Competency 2: Safely and therapeutically manage crisis situations
Competency 3: Be able to process with students to help improve their coping skills

Cornell University developed the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) model for residential care as part of its Residential Child Care Project in the early 1980's. The foundations of this curriculum are in research based literature and programs. In 2007 Cornell responded to requests from various Board of Cooperative Education (BOCES) Centers and other public schools and adapted the TCI curriculum to meet the needs of schools. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools (TCIS) gives WFL BOCES a framework for implementing a crisis prevention and management system that reduces the need to rely on high-risk interventions, complements the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach and includes aspects of trauma informed care.

There are three main competencies taught in the TCIS Training:

Competency 1: Prevent and de-escalate potential crises with students
Competency 2: Safely and therapeutically manage crisis situations
Competency 3: Be able to process with students to help improve their coping skills

There are three levels of certification:

Level 1: Verbal de-escalation skills including the Life Space Interview (initial training of 21 hours)
Level 2: Verbal de-escalation, LSI and TCIS protectives (initial training of 24 hours)
Level 3: Verbal techniques, protectives and physical restraint techniques (initial training of 28 hours)

This training will certify verbal de-escalation skills including the LSI and TCIS protectives and physical restraints.

There are 2 more years left of the current grade 8 assessment. During this workshop participants will review the past written tests, take the manipulative test and score student examples from each station. Participants will be instructed on the set up of the stations, materials needed, and will practice setting up each station for testing use.

Dates: 5/13/2020

"Everyone deserves a balanced and healthy diet." ~Tier 1 Instruction and Assessment for All

Frequent testing does not improve student learning outcomes any more than frequent weigh-ins improve health. When districts, schools, and teachers develop a healthy instruction and assessment system, everyone benefits! Administrators and mental health professionals have fewer fires to put out, teachers have a strong sense of how to help their students learn, and students have a clear picture of their strengths and a pathway for improving their performance.

"Looks like you have a second degree burn. Let's get this covered up so you don't get an infection." ~Tier 2 Instructional Intervention and Assessment

When students are struggling, what instructional and assessment steps can you take to turbocharge a student's learning so they can catch up to their peers? We can borrow from first responder protocols and apply these lessons to our instruction and assessment. In particular, we will learn about how to use state test question stems to build supportive classroom formative assessments in ELA and math that are aligned to the Next Generation Learning Standards.

"Annie, Annie, are you OK? Call 9-1-1!"~Tier 3 Instructional Intervention and Assessment

When students are in crisis, it is important to provide immediate and critical learning and social-emotional supports. Discover how lessons from the ER apply to students who need intensive services.

Please join us for a day jam-packed with actionable steps to improve your instruction and assessment.
