On-Demand Webinars

To support the implementation of school climate frameworks and research-based practices, we have created the web-based resources.


The content below is designed to provide an overview of concepts, challenges and barriers, recommendations for practice, tools and resources for further learning. They may be viewed independently (e.g. self-directed learning) or as a team for planning or internal professional development purposes. Webinars are grouped into five categories representing key focus areas: Restorative Practices, Chronic Absenteeism, Trauma-Informed Approaches, Data-Based Decision Making and Grant Information.


Session descriptions, speaker/presenter information, and dates are described for each webinar. Handouts or materials included in the presentation are available to download.

Data-Based Decision Making

November 6, 2019 Webinar

Digging Into Data: School Discipline

Halley Eacker, M.S., Director, Safe and Supportive School Technical Assistance Center

This session will focus on data collection and analysis for school discipline. We will discuss “digging into data” around office discipline referrals, suspension, and expulsion. Using a Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) cycle approach, we will drill down into our discipline data, support one another to draw data-based conclusions, and brainstorm strategies for continuous improvement. Self-assessment and problem-solving tools will be provided.

Making School Climate Survey Data Work For You

Halley Eacker, M.S., Director, Safe and Supportive School Technical Assistance Center

School Climate surveys can help us learn about stakeholder perceptions of engagement, safety, and the school environment. They’re also critical in measuring progress toward goals to strengthen the school climate. This session will examine the content, structure, and purpose of the Education Department School Climate Survey (EDSCLS) in the context of data-driven inquiry and continuous improvement. Participants will explore how to use data to describe trends and draw conclusions about stakeholder perceptions of school climate. Strategies will be shared to select practices that target core issues and monitor progress. Resources to turn-key this information to staff will be provided.
