Waiting until students receive 6 or more ODRs to identify them for additional supports may mean you're waiting too long. Learn how to use SWIS to interrupt this trajectory in the fall.
In this episode, we talk to Dr. Erin Chaparro and Dr. Ginny Joseph about the fundamentals of Tier 2 team decision making.
Looking for specific ODR patterns helps you offer support to the students who benefit from it the most. The best time to identify these students relies upon a little method we like to call The October Catch.
Have you ever made a decision and wondered if there's something you might have missed? Here are four ways to expand your problem-solving perspective and explore new solutions to some of your most challenging decisions.

The SWIS data summary are the national average data gathered from all schools who have opted-in to anonymously share their data. The report contains data from 5000+ schools and 2.9+ million students.
Your school's systems work together to make sure you’re collecting the right information in the right way at the right time. When it comes to improving student outcomes, everything starts with your discipline systems.
To correctly integrate referral files from your SIS, a SWIS Mapping Template is required. This map matches your SIS codes to their SWIS counterparts in the PBISApps database. DataLink uses the map you create to automatically convert your SIS data to be compatible with SWIS fields. Each tab in this template corresponds to a SWIS referral field category. Inside each tab are the labels associated with each field and their corresponding abbreviations and codes. Use the Student System space to provide the label names associated with the respective referral field category in your SIS. Each SIS label must match with one and only one SWIS code.
