What's the True sStory? Centering Equity in Data-Based Decision Making

What's the True Story? Centering Equity in Data-Based Decision Making

MTSS is a framework grounded in data-based decision making. When MTSS teams evaluate office discipline referrals, special education identification, or access to advanced placement courses, the ability to evaluate data with an equity mindset becomes imperative. Without this process, decisions and actions may lead to misinterpretation and result in missing the voices and experiences of historically underserved learners. This session will focus on methods of embedding culturally responsive practices into the problem-solving model and how the process informs equitable practices, inclusivity and spaces of belonging in educational settings.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will describe the value of centering equity in their data-based decision making process.

2. Participants will define equity, inclusion and belonging as it connects their specific context.

3. Participants will describe methods to detect disproportionality in education.

Target Audience: Educator Administrators, MTSS Coordinators, School Psychologists, School Counselors, Teachers
