I tried to put together some documents that might be helpful as you work on TIENET forms. There are a few reading samples and a math sample below. I attempted a video of how to navigate when you are in TIENET. Just note, since the video, there has been a small change on what gets filled out. We do need to address the INSTRUCTIONAL AREA and a GOAL. You can see the samples for this.  Remember this is a collaborative process, just get them opened and start filling in some of the information. We can tweak them together later

WHO do I document on TIENET and WHO on PAPER?


Documenting Plans




Plans must be documented on TIENET in the following situations:


·         Title 1 student


·         Reading Specialist, Special Educator, or Math Specialist is providing direct service


·         Tier 3 intervention (see parameters for guidance)


·         In June, when Tier 2 will carry over to the following year.

This plan should be collaboratively created and updated by the specialist and classroom teacher.




·         If the student is receiving Tier 2 interventions from the classroom teacher. (The group intervention plan we did at data day is fine)


·          In the spring, students who are determined to be in need of continuing an intervention in the following school year, will have their paper plan changed to TIENET plan.

PLP grade 3

Below are two examples of what a Reading Plan might look like on TIENET. Note the change in idntifying the Instructional Area and adding a Goal. The goal needs to be something measurable. For example...

-Increase phonic skills as measured by performing at the 50th percentile on AimsWeb Nonsense Fluency.

-Read grade level text fluently as measured by running record at level K at 95% accuracy

-Benchmark level on CORE Phonics Survey
