The family-school partnering component of the State Personnel Development Grant (SPDG) grant focuses on several key actions in successfully accomplishing the grant objective, To increase the meaningful participation of families in RtI/PBIS implementation in LEAs.

These include the following:

  • Developing a research-based curriculum, linked to the Colorado RtI/PBIS framework, which can be implemented in multiple venues for diverse stakeholders;
  • Providing a menu of stakeholder learning opportunities which includes regional trainings, compacted presentations for existing conferences, an online course, and a website with adaptable tools and materials;
  • Collecting higher education information on the current practices and needs in preparing future educators to work with families, so as to provide identified support and resources for faculty/programs;
  • Creating a Colorado Family-School Partnering Community of Practice to increase the intentional application of partnering practices in improving student outcomes

The Colorado Department of Education has partnered with two federally-funded family organizations in supporting these actions:

Several CDE initiatives are working with RtI/PBIS and Exceptional Student Services Unit on this component, including Dropout Prevention and School Engagement; Office of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education; Office of Federal Program Administration; and Early Childhood Initiatives.
