Step 4: Implement and Monitor

After a district or school creates its One Plan, it will begin to implement and monitor. Monitoring is collaborative learning through observing the implementation of adult practices and their impact on student outcomes. An important part of the One Plan is identifying the student and adult implementation measures within each goal. These measures will be crucial to effectively implementing and monitoring the district or school’s progress toward achieving the goals in its One Plan.

Implementation requires changes in adult behaviors and practices to achieve whole child goals. Collecting ongoing adult and student data gives implementers immediate feedback for course corrections and informs implementation and monitoring efforts. A rapid cycle of data analysis, such as formative assessments, measures the effectiveness of a strategy more quickly than a traditional assessment, such as a unit test or quarterly assessment. This gives implementers ongoing feedback in real time to support continuous quality improvement. 
 

Using Data to Measure Impact

Data will tell the impact of strategies. By evaluating how interventions affect student learning and wellness, collaborative teams learn what interventions are working and for whom they are working. Through this information, teams can adjust practices, renew the plan and try again; therefore, continuously improving. Data collection and analysis allow adults to make course corrections based on evidence. Implementers should base course corrections on all evidence and whether the strategy is having the intended impact. If the strategy is not having the intended impact, corrections could include additional training, coaching or resources based on the identified need.

During the Plan for Implementation step, the collaborative team will identify data sources to monitor for selected evidence-based strategies. The team should collect implementation evidence that shows the level of impact. This evidence can include existing data sources such as attendance, the PBIS Tiered Fidelity Inventory, family engagement and school climate surveys. Using additional data is important when monitoring the process and effectiveness of whole child supports. See the Analyzing Whole Child Data Sources section of this guide for more information on data to consider when implementing and monitoring whole child supports.

Data collection and analysis allow the collaborative team to make course corrections based on evidence. The team should base course corrections on all evidence and whether the strategy is having the intended impact. If the strategy is not having the intended impact, corrections could include additional training, coaching or resources based on the identified need.
