2018 Tier I Workshop Events

Behavior Team at Tier I Workshop working at table together

Join us at our free Tier I workshop and get ready to implement RTI2-B Tier I in your school. Thank you for your interest in the Tennessee Behavior Supports Project’s workshop Establishing Tier I: RTI2-B Introduction.  We are offering this 2-day workshop at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville campus during events listed below!


Please review overview information before beginning the registration process.

This workshop takes place over 2 days and is designed primarily for School Leadership Teams to develop a written action plans for establishing Tier I of RTI2-Behavior at their schools. During this workshop, School Leadership Teams will be exposed to content and will have structured time to develop their action plans to guide implementation by an entire school staff. To make the most efficient use of workshop time, a full School Leadership Team needs to attend this workshop together.

Tier I is the foundation of the process and includes all students and all settings within the school. Tier I provides preventative and proactive universal interventions that address the behavioral needs of all students, create a positive school climate, and result in increased time for instruction. Implemented with fidelity, research indicates that 80-90% of students will be successful.

Each School Leadership Team should consist of no fewer than three and no more than eight school staff (i.e., 3-8 school staff). Your School Leadership Team should include at least one administrator (e.g., Principal). It is difficult for only one or two teachers to make decisions that will affect the entire school; please send appropriate representation for your school to ensure efficient use of your time.

We ask that you limit your team to eight school staff for the workshop so that we will have space for numerous school teams to attend.

Your team of 3-8 school staff should consist of at least one administrator, representative teachers (e.g., general education, special education, ELL teachers and across grade levels), and representative staff with behavioral expertise or those who deal with student behavior (e.g., behavior specialists, school counselors, school psychologists).

To register a team for this training, you will need to know the following: all team members’ names, position titles, email addresses, and the member who will be designated as the point of contact (team lead).

District-level support is crucial for sustained implementation. This training is appropriate for members of District Leadership Teams who will plan for and support implementation of RTI2-B in their district and schools. It is ideal when members of District Leadership Teams can attend this workshop alongside one or more School Leadership Teams from their district.

District Leadership Teams may include the following: a district team leader, leaders who will serve as external coaches to School Leadership Teams, departmental directors/supervisors, educational staff representatives, specialist representatives, and/or school leaders. District leaders who attend with a team can earn 14 hours of TASL credit for the 2-day workshop.

We encourage district and school administrators to discuss a plan for identifying school and district leaders who will attend this workshop.

This workshop offers 14 hours of TASL credit for administrators and supervisors who attend the 2-day workshop with a team.
