  • Instructional Decision-making Procedures: Ensuring Appropriate Instruction for Struggling Students In Grades K-12
    Revised in 2014 to reflect changes in federal and state legislation, this guide provides campus-based administrators and educators with procedures for ensuring appropriate instruction for students struggling with reading, mathematics, and behavior, and for students who are English language learners (ELL). Educators and school teams can use the procedures in this booklet to identify effective instructional practices and interventions to reduce referrals to special education. Administrators and educators can also use the information gathered from implementing these procedures to document how a student responded to interventions when special education eligibility is being considered.
  • Instructional Walkthrough Tools
    The three observation checklists can be used to support effective instruction. They focus on explicit instruction, using grouping for instruction, and scaffolding to support student learning.
  • Commonly Requested Professional Development Topics
    To help anticipate professional development needs, review this resource. It is an record of professional development requests made by the Spotlight 3-Tier campuses to support their implementation efforts.
