With Kickboard’s New RTI System, Teachers Can Easily Create, Monitor and Update Behavior Intervention Plans

The behavior RTI System allows teachers to quickly assign and track
interventions, and act on real-time, quantitative data to create safe,
happy schools where students and staff thrive

NEW ORLEANS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Many schools rely on early warning indicators to monitor behavior
warning signs and identify students who may be falling off track. Once
these students are identified, however, paper-based or disjointed
systems make it difficult for educators to track behavior intervention
plan details or pull data to determine if the interventions are working.
With Kickboard’s
new behavior Response To Intervention (RTI) System, K-12 educators can
now easily create, implement and monitor individual behavior
intervention plans across all RTI tiers.

The latest enhancement to the Kickboard school-wide
behavior management system
, the behavior RTI System gives educators
the tools and data to stay a step ahead of escalating issues, while
intervening at the right place and time. Within each intervention plan,
teachers can assign one or more behavior interventions from Kickboard’s
configurable Intervention Library, as well as designate specific
positive behaviors to replace negative behaviors. As the interventions
are implemented and teachers enter behavior data into Kickboard as part
of their daily routines, the data is automatically populated into each
student’s plan. This seamless integration saves time and allows teachers
to easily monitor student progress, based on quantitative data, in every
class throughout the school day. Further, because it is updated in
real-time, educators can immediately act upon the data.

For example, data points such as “total time spent in interventions”
helps teachers better measure which interventions are the most
effective, so they can share and replicate best practices. In addition,
teachers can access an array of clear, easy-to-understand visuals,
including graphs that not only show a student’s progress toward his or
her intervention plan goals but the likelihood of meeting those goals
based on the student’s current progress.

“For years, teachers have had to jump from one system to another to
track behavior data for Tier 1 students and behavior interventions for
students at Tier 2 or above — or they’ve had to manage all that data
with spreadsheets or paper and pencil,” said Kickboard CEO Jennifer
Medbery. “With Kickboard, teachers can now quickly identify students who
are struggling, create a behavior intervention plan, and monitor their
progress — all in one system.”

According to Medbery, the RTI System builds upon the capabilities of
Kickboard’s Early Warning Indicator System, which was introduced last
year. “The Early Warning Indicator System gives schools the ability to
establish ‘triggers’ to instantly alert educators if students are
veering off track. Now, with the RTI System, they can immediately create
behavior intervention plans, assign interventions, access real-time data
points to see if the interventions are working, and take action as
needed,” she said.
