In order to maximize achievement and growth for all students, it is essential educational leaders create a highly defined vision and plan for their schools, identifying realistic goals based on data and assessment results and working backwards to determine timeline, tasks, and progress monitoring; it is a daunting organizational task. In the War Room at Treasure Mountain Junior High School (TMJH) in Park City School District, school leaders spend hours building their vision and plan for the coming school year. It is a process that narrows focus to specific areas of improvement with established results to monitor, contributing to more productive leadership and effective decision making as the school year and its accompanying noise and chaos move forward. In addition to the War Room process, which is also a way for administrators and other educational leaders to model MTSS principles, like data-informed decisions, team-based problem solving, and progress monitoring, MTSS implementation is one of the specific goals the administrators at TMJH have defined. Session attendees will learn about the War Room and the MTSS implementation plan at TMJH as well as make the first steps in building their own War Rooms.
