Central Rivers AEAMTSS Infrastructure/Framework Innovation Configuration (IC) Maps

This IC Map is intended to be used as a tool to guide the Social, Emotional, Behavior and Mental Health (SEBMH) work in your district/school/classroom.  Users are encouraged to first, identify current practices for each element and then to develop an action plan that will enable them to move to the next level of practice.  The closer educators demonstrate the practices as outlined in column “A”, the closer they are to demonstrating best practice with regard to this innovation. This tool is to be used as a self-assessment tool to aid educators  in the application of the continuous improvement process around these components and is intended to be an ongoing process across time. This tool is NOT to be used to evaluate staff regarding the implementation of these practices.
