Intervention Planning & Assessment System (IPAS) Webinar/Training 

Tigard-Tualatin School District, Tigard, OR or Online

This training opportunity is intended for districts that are already using, or are interested in using, the Intervention Planning and Assessment System (IPAS). IPAS is an online database for managing student screening and progress monitoring data and is available at not cost to school districts.

This 1-hour training will provide an overview of the system, showing how to get your district set up to use the online system as well as the many features and reports that are available for reviewing and analyzing student data. Participants will have the choice of attending on-site at the Tigard-Tualatin District Office OR via online webinar.  Districts who choose to attend this training-on-site will be able to receive hands-on technical support with IPAS following this initial 1-hour overview. This can include assistance with importing your student data (please note: student data import currently available for DIBELS, with easyCBM import features coming soon), help with setting up your district's IPAS site to be able to enter student data directly, or general help with navigating the website and learning about its features.

When registering, please indicate if you will be attending on-site or via webinar. Those who choose to attend via webinar will receive a weblink with directions on how to access the webinar, prior to the training.

Tier 1 Training (New Districts Only)

Portland, OR (Crowne Plaza) 

We are excited to invite you to attend your first training as part of ORTIi. During this required training, you and your fellow District Implementation Leadership Team (DILT) members will learn about the ORTIi essential components with an emphasis of how to install Year I practices (Core, Screening and Data Based Decision Making structures). Careful planning of these practices is essential for implementing strong, effective RTI systems leading to better outcomes for students. The goal of this two-day training is for teams to leave with a clear understanding of their next steps and the tools they will need to build and refine Year I practices. Teams will be provided with sufficient content and time to begin this work.

Who Should Attend:
District Implementation Leadership Team, which consists of Directors of C & I/T & L, Federal Programs, Student Services as well as principals, literacy specialists/coaches, teachers and specialist representatives. Consult your coach if you would like guidance on who should attend.

This training is only open to the following districts: Dufur, Newberg, Oregon Trail, Philomath, Prairie City, Salem/Keizer, Sherman County, South Umpqua, St. Paul, Vernonia, Wallowa, Yamhill/Carlton.

Jo Robinson, Elementary Effective Instruction

Portland Monarch Hotel, Clackamas, Or

We are pleased to once again have Jo Robinson join us for a day of digging deeply into best practices for effective literacy instruction. This dynamic and interactive training day will focus on the essential elements of effective literacy instruction, identifying instructional targets, and practical strategies that can be used to differentiate and deliver instruction daily in the classroom. Jo Robinson will provide many classroom-focused tools and strategies. This training is designed for building teams that include instructional leaders (principals, coaches, etc) and teacher leaders (classroom teachers that can serve as models/coaches for their peers). In the past, teachers have left this training energized and inspired, and teams have left with a plan for infusing, what they have learned, into their buildings.
