Intensifying Supports at Tier 3: MTSS In-Person Training @ Pendleton IMESD (Lodgepole/Ponderosa) from 9-3:30 pm.

Even with the most well-designed and delivered Tier 1 instruction and Tier 2 interventions, some students will need more. Please join us to hear about key considerations for intensifying and adapting interventions at Tier 3. We’ll explore how addressing the alterable variables of instruction, curriculum, and environment at the individual student level can help accelerate student progress and improve outcomes for students with the most intensive needs. Resources to help guide the process will be shared. Teams will also receive time to reflect on their current systems and plan for next year.

  • Lunch will be provided
  • It is highly recommended that you attend with your MTSS team, if possible
  • Since we will walk through the process of individualizing which students need the most intensive supports, it would be helpful if participants come with a student(s) in mind, along with any data or record of previously tried interventions, that they could use to apply the process to their setting.

Welcome to the Oregon Trail REN Mentor Program. Our goal is to offer the tools, resources, and training that are needed for each district to support their beginning teachers at the highest level. We look forward to working with you as you take on the role of of a mentor. 

The collaborative nature of our program is designed to help mentors gain professional knowledge from training and resources AND from the expertise and experience of other mentors in our region.

Mentoring is greatly beneficial to beginning teachers and students. Research shows:

  • teachers who have mentors are twice as likely to stay in the profession then those who do not. 
  • students whose teachers had mentors gained an additional two-five months in reading and math compared to those without mentors.

Mentor Program Mission: To provide a framework for mentoring and create a network of support for mentors with the goal of retaining growth-focused teachers.

Mentor Program Vision: Mentors will effectively and routinely coach adult learners to strive for the success of every child.
