Event Description

The New Jersey Department of Education transitioned to a Tiered System of Supports model that builds upon Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) and gives schools the structure to meet the academic, behavioral, health, enrichment and social/emotional needs of all students.

This is a highly engaging, interactive, hands-on workshop that is designed by an educator for educators.

The main objective of the training is to enable school districts to effectively transition from the Intervention & Referral Services model to Tiered System of Supports.

Who Should Attend?

This training is recommended for I&RS/RtI Team, Members, Child Study Team Members, School Counselors, Teachers and Administrators. 

Program Highlights

  • Family and Community Engagement — developing and implementing ongoing programs of participation for family and community partners in the design, implementation and sustainability of the NJTSS framework.
  • Universal Screening  — developing and implementing a system for Universal Screening that uses reliable screening tools administered to all students in English language arts and mathematics, more than once per year, to identify students who are at risk for learning and behavior difficulties; and administered in accordance with test protocols.
