Evanston/Skokie CCSD 65 has continued to build Tier 3 capacity with consistent external coaching at advanced tiers.  The district coaches have participated in the Illinois PBIS Tertiary Learning Community, which helped them to build fluency with Tier 3 wraparound interventions through networking and problem solving with Tier 3 coaches and facilitators statewide.  Approximately 70% of the schools in the district have documented Tier 3 activity, with 13 Tier 3 facilitators in 12 schools actively using the Tier 3 SIMEO data system.  During 2011-12, seven schools in the district had a total of 18 students supported through Tier 3 wraparound with active use of data for decision-making.  These students, nine of whom had Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), saw a 14% decrease in office discipline referrals (ODRs), and experienced improvements in school attendance, homework completion, and overall academic performance.
