The Student Risk Screening Scale (SRSS) is a universal screening tool used three times a year to identify students who are at risk for challenging behaviors. Educators use the data to design supports needed for students to be academically successful in school. This screening tool consists of eleven (secondary) to twelve (elementary) items that teachers use to rate their classroom of students based on the teacher’s current knowledge with clear evidence of each individual student’s behavior.
Schools are asked to conduct universal screening using the SRSS coming off of the MIBLSI Intervention Systems training or Promoting Positive School Climate (PPSC) Tier 2 Behavior Supports training. Previous participants have found it helpful to attend with a partner from their district or ISD to make the most of the planning time that is available in the training.
Participants are required to complete a brief 20-30 minute online course related to the Student Risk Screening Scale (SRSS) prior to attending the in-person training. The online course is designed to provide participants with foundational knowledge and information related to the SRSS as a universal screening measure. The SRSS course can be accessed via Michigan Virtual (MVU; https://plp.mivu.org/). You will need to set up an account with MVU if you do not already have one. Once you are logged into MVU’s system, please search for the course titled “Student Risk Screening Scale.” Deadline for the completion of the SRSS online course is January 31, 2019.
This training is being offered in 3 locations with the primary location being in Lansing, Michigan. We will offer remote access to the training from Eastern Upper Peninsula ISD and Copper Country ISD. Please choose carefully when making your location selection.
