RtI Mini-Grant Summit Presentations
CDE's RtI/PBIS Office hosted a Summit on June 28 for each 2011-2012 mini-grant recipient to share their RtI implementation journey with the 2012-2013 cohort of mini-grant districts. District personnel shared their growth experiences regarding the following themes:
- Family and Community Partnering
- Integration of RtI/PBIS
- Problem-Solving Across the System or at the Secondary Level
This Summit also provided a unique opportunity for school and district personnel to work in small groups with national experts on RtI/PBIS integration. Stacy Skalski from the National Association of School Psychologists and George Sugai from the OSEP Technical Assistance Center on PBIS, joined us to facilitate dialogues with school and district personnel as well as reflect on and inform RtI implementation across Colorado.
Presentations that were shared at the Summit:
- General Sessions:
- Family, School and Community Partnering
- District Presentations:
RtI Fidelity of Implementation Rubrics
Recognizing the need for strong guidance in RtI implementation, CDE has developed a set of fidelity tools to improve outcomes for students in Colorado. These fidelity tools will support a scaling up of effective practice across the state.
The RtI Implementation Rubrics are designed to assist districts, schools, and educators with the implementation of RtI. The tools provide the means to reflect on policies and practices from the classroom level, to the school district, and state level in order to continually improve outcomes for students. These tools are intended to be used statewide and provide needed support in a continuous improvement cycle. The rubrics can also assist districts in their work toward accomplishing their goal of systemic change for increased student achievement.
