No matter where you are on your implementation journey, at some point you’ll want to take a step back and ask yourselves, “Are we doing what we said we’d do and is that effort having the kind of impact we hoped it would have?” Answering those questions requires data. Once you’ve collected the data you need, the next step is to create a plan.

On today’s episode of Expert Instruction: The Teach by Design Podcast, we invited two experts to share their action-planning strategies. Hear how they guide teams to use data, focus their problem solving, and build their best action plans ever.

Our guests today are Hannah Anderson and Luke Anderson. Hannah is the Director of Innovation, School Programs and Accountability for the Rocklin Unified School District (RUSD) in Rocklin, CA. She oversees state and federal programs and leads the district’s PBIS Leadership Team.

Luke Anderson is the Senior Director of Prevention Supports and Services for the Placer County Office of Education in Auburn, CA. He oversees the PBIS and Multi-Tiered System of Support regional initiatives – specifically, he specializes in using data to improve outcomes in school systems. He is a statewide SWIS Facilitator Trainer and a member of the California PBIS Coalition Leadership Team.
