    This webinar from the Center on Response to Intervention discusses how to make sound decisions regarding tier 2 interventions. Decisions must be made at this stage regarding how long a student should stay there and whether or not the interventions produce the intended result.

A SMART goal the assistant principal and I developed was to reduce disciplinary referrals for the school year. We pulled eSchool data from Cognos to compare month by month data to see changes in each grade level. As a result we both learned more about patterns of student behavior, data sources, and data uses. It's pleasing to note that we met our goal through a shared purpose between administrators and educators.
