1. Problem Identification:
What is the problem to be addressed? What is an observable, measurable goal that represents meaningful improvement?
2. Problem Analysis:
Why is the problem taking place? What is the underlying cause of the problem?
3. Plan Development:
What intervention will address the problem? How will the intervention be implemented? How will student progress be monitored? How will we know if the intervention is working or not working?
4. Plan Evaluation:Is the plan working? What changes (if any) are necessary to achieve our goals?
WUSD supports the 4 step problem solving model by holding MTSS Tier 3 Team Meetings three times a year. During these meetings, teachers, administrators, staff members, program specialists and support providers come together to discuss our students who are most at-risk, having the most intensive academic and/or behavioral and/or social emotional needs. These students are provided an MTSS action plan that is targeted and specific to each student’s needs. The plan documents the targeted supports that have been provided to each student. The team works together to come up with additional resources, supports and interventions to help each student succeed. The plan is then monitored in a 4-6 week cycle, evaluated and adjusted as necessary.
