INTERNAL PD OPPORTUNITY: Data-Based Individualization (DBI) Professional Learning Series

Published: June 24th, 2020

Special Education Directors,

Are you anxious about starting the new school year without the data you typically rely on? Are you worried about how your school can meet the learning needs of all students during these uncertain times? ADE is here with research-based strategies to help!

The Arizona Department of Education, Exceptional Student Services, is pleased to announce a Data-Based Individualization Professional Learning Series in partnership with the National Center on Intensive Intervention.

Given the limited information about students’ skills as they begin the new school year, teachers will need to be more intentional than ever about assessing students’ current functioning and providing targeted and intensive intervention. The Data-Based individualization (DBI) Professional Learning Series teaches educators a research-based process for individualizing and intensifying interventions for students with and without disabilities through the systematic use of assessment data, validated interventions, and research-based adaptation strategies.

If your school is interested in participating in the series, please register your team (principal, special education teacher and general education teacher, coach, or interventionist) for a readiness webinar on July 15, 2020 from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Admission into the training series will require participation in the webinar and submission of an application provided at the webinar and due on July 27, 2020. If your team cannot attend the webinar on July 15 but is interested in participating in the learning series, please email Kim Rice.
