Innovation configurations (ICs) are designed to evaluate current teacher preparation and professional development (PD) by determining the extent to which EBPs are taught, observed, and applied within teacher preparation and PD programs. This IC can serve as a foundation for strengthening existing preparation programs so that educators exit with the ability to use various forms of assessment to make data-based educational and instructional decisions within an MTSS.
The intent of this compendium is to gather student, faculty and staff, family, administrator, and community surveys in Pre-K/Elementary School, middle and high school, and higher education environments. The surveys can be used in whole or in part; that is, whole surveys or individual scales can be administered to target respondents. All scales in the compendium have been tested for validity and reliability.
To help schools and districts improve school climate, the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments has developed the School Climate Improvement Resource Package. The resource package includes a variety of resources to meet a range of needs among stakeholders interested in improving school climate.
In this tool, teachers can self-assess on 10 teaching practices that support social and emotional learning for students. This can help teachers reflect and assess how well their own teaching practices support SEL for students within MTSS.
This toolkit can support instructional staff in implementing SEL practices through planning, observations, feedback, and action planning. This toolkit is only for formative purposes—not for evaluating or rating teachers. It is designed for instructional coaches, administrators, and district leaders.
This resource provides an overview of evidence-based strategies that schools and districts may use to promote equitable family engagement practices. Organized around five categories of equitable family engagement strategies, this resource includes summaries of the research on equitable family engagement as well as examples of school and district practices across the country, linking to publicly available information where possible.
Beyond the Bell®: A Toolkit for Creating Effective Afterschool and Expanded Learning Programs contains practical resources, tips, and tools and substantive information about all aspects of program design, management, partnerships, delivery, evaluation, and improvement, along with 96 ready-to-use tools.
The Stop, Think, Act: Ready to Assess toolkit, is available at no cost from AIR SEL Solutions. It 1) highlights the importance of implementation readiness and the conditions that foster SEL and development; 2) includes assessments of learning conditions in and out of school; and 3) updates the list of available social and emotional competency assessments.
Data teams can use these checklists to monitor implementation of the initial planning meetings for individual students with intensive needs and ongoing review (progress monitoring) meetings.
