The Summer Leadership Academy is focused on providing opportunities for counselors to look at the components of the Wisconsin and National models that surround the four core components of Foundation, Delivery System, Management and Accountability. The Academy is designed to the develop counselor's Leadership, Advocacy and Collaboration skills that lead to Systemic Change.

This year's Leadership Academy Participants will walk away with an understanding of their role in the RtI and PBIS process. This is also closely related to the new rule on the SLD (Specific Learning Disabilities) criteria . Our team of instructors will be:

Justyn Paulos, Wisconsin PBIS Network Coordinator
PBIS schools across Wisconsin have created a more positive environment for students and staff by establishing clear expectations for their students and taking active steps in teaching, modeling, and reinforcing appropriate behaviors school-wide. As of January 15, 2011, over 614 schools in 149 districts in Wisconsin have attended PBIS training.

Kathy Ryder, Director of the RtI Center
The Wisconsin RtI Center's goal is for school communities to increase opportunities for all students to achieve academic and behavioral success by implementing a multi-level system of support that meets the needs of each student. Schools measure their implementation success through he analysis of outcome data demonstrating increased student achievement and school climate.

Vaunce Ashby, Department of Public Instruction
The new rule on the Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) Criteria will allow for the identification of students who have a Specific Learning Disability earlier in their educational career. These students ability to access the educational curriculum more fully will lead to successful education outcomes and in turn increase the graduation rate of these students.

Panel
Our day will be completed by a group of area educators with a panel discussion and a Question & Answer session.

PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports)
www.wisconsinpbisnetwork.org

PBIS schools across Wisconsin have created a more positive environment for students and staff by establishing clear expectations for their students and taking active steps in teaching, modeling and reinforcing appropriate behaviors school wide.

Wisconsin schools have been implementing PBIS since the Fall of 2006, with rapid growth in the number of trained PBIS schools in Wisconsin occurring within the last year. As of January 15, 2011, over 614 schools in 149 districts in Wisconsin have attended PBIS training.

Vision
The Wisconsin RtI Center’s vision is to bring about systems change in Wisconsin school communities in order to maximize opportunities for ALL students to achieve academic and behavioral success. Addressing the needs of all students through a quality RtI system will become standard practice for schools.

Goal for Schools
The Wisconsin RtI Center’s end goal is for school communities to increase opportunities for all students to achieve academic and behavioral success by implementing a multi-level system of support that meets the needs of each student. Schools measure their implementation success through the analysis of outcome data demonstrating increased student achievement and school climate.

New SLD Rule
http://dpi.wi.gov/sped/pdf/ld-rule-summary.pdf

The new rule on the Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) Criteria will allow for the identification of students who have a Specific Learning Disability earlier in their educational career. These students’ ability to access the educational curriculum more fully will lead to successful education outcomes and in turn increase the graduation rate of these students.
Parents have the right to request an evaluation at any time and a comprehensive evaluation is still required. Additionally, Initial Evaluation for SLD is the only disability areas in which parents and the school can agree on a timeline extension. These components of the rule are not new.
