Steve Gill of the Kent School District will deliver a unique training that cover three different data analysis topics:

Non-ELL Critical Data Analysis Process

1) The first section of the training covers background issues, problems, laws, and research needed to assist staff in addressing the belief systems of others, and their own belief systems that are impacting the progress in this field. The content focuses on understanding the relationship between acculturation, belief systems, practices and results.

Special Education Referral or Not? A Matrix-Based Approach to Data Analysis

2) The second section focuses on training those in attendance on how to complete the LEAP3 Based Critical Data Process. This is the process created by Steve that helps staff to gather the most critical data, follow a structured process, and create a product that helps them to see whether more interventions are needed or if a special education referral is a reasonable option. The Critical Data Process brings key staff members to the table and structures the discussions so that a student’s needs are better understood. (LEAP3 – Look at Exposure, Experience, Expectations and Practice to understand the student).

The Preschool Versions of the ELL Critical Data Process

3) The third section focuses on training those in attendance on how to complete the Preschool Version of the ELL Critical Data Process. This is the process created by Steve that helps staff to gather the most critical data, follow a structured process, and create a product that helps them to see whether more interventions are needed or if a special education referral is a reasonable option. The Critical Data Process brings key staff members to the table and structures the discussions so that a student’s needs are better understood. This focuses on LEAP3 concepts also, given there is not school based data.
