2012–2013 Building Capacity for Response to Intervention (RtI) Project
This project is part of the Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk (MCPER) within the College of Education at The University of Texas at Austin.
Funded by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), the project’s goal is to build capacity for Texas schools to implement Response to Intervention (Rtl) as a means for improving student achievement.
The project focuses on disseminating information, resources, and tools designed to enhance the use of an instructional decision-making model in the areas of reading, mathematics, and behavior.
Web site resources address steps of RtI implementation, from conducting a campus needs assessment, developing an action plan, promoting teacher collaboration, designing differentiated intervention, to answering parents’ questions.
Major activities for the 2012-2013 Building Capacity for Response to Intervention (RtI) Implementation project include:
- Create modules to enhance RtI implementation in Texas schools;
- Develop tools and resources to enhance the knowledge of Texas educators and school leaders in implementing Rtl;
- Collaborate with TEA and the Regional Education Service Centers to disseminate information and provide venues for school leaders to share information related to practices that promote school improvement in districts that are targeting disproportionality in their schools; by conducting presentations at the request of ESCs and in-state educator organizations to disseminate information and resources to stakeholders in implementing Rtl;
- Maintain and update this Web site to give Texas educators, parents, and other stakeholders “24/7″ access to Rtl implementation information.
