Building Your School's Capacity to Implement RTI: An ASCD Action Tool

About This Book
Response to Intervention, or RTI, is a school wide improvement process that can benefit all students. But for the process to work, leaders and staff must learn how to implement it in the way that best fits their school communities and practices.
This action tool guides educators through the process of creating an RTI framework, including forming a planning team, learning about and teaching staff the RTI components, and determining staff and team roles and responsibilities.
Whether you're just starting to build an RTI framework or want to improve your existing practices, the 75 tools in this book will help you to systematically build your school's teams and processes for implementing RTI. Recognizing that every school and district is different, the authors have created variations that let you adapt the tools to your current practices or your preferred route toward developing and implementing an RTI framework that meets your students' needs.
Building Your School's Capacity to Implement RTI is designed to help administrators and school improvement teams examine each major component of an RTI framework—universal screening, effective core instruction, a multitiered system of student supports, data-based problem solving, and progress monitoring—and determine how these components align with current school processes and where capacity building will be needed.
By aligning existing practices and school and district goals with the components of an effective RTI framework, you can build your school's capacity to best implement this schoolwide improvement initiative and increase student success.
