Implementing Structured Data Meetings: A Year-Round Tool for Optimizing Instructional Planning for English Learners


Project ELITE2 developed professional development and tools to support Del Valle ISD in implementing structured data meetings at key assessment points throughout the year (Beginning-, Middle-, and End-of-Year) for all educators serving ELs, as well as monthly for core (Tier I) classroom teachers. The materials include guides and protocols for leading successful meetings and for documenting decisions about students and instructional planning. Self-paced training modules were also designed and used by educators to develop their understanding of the purpose of structured data meetings in a multitiered instructional framework.  The trainings include an overview of the purposes, procedures, and materials needed to conduct successful structured data meetings.
