RTI Institute (ESC 20)

Region 20 Education Service Center, Atascosa-Bandera-Bexar-Dimmit-Frio-Kendall Rooms, 1314 Hines San Antonio, TX 78208

In partnership with Region 20 Education Service Center, the Building RTI Capacity project is hosting a 2-day Response to Intervention (RTI) Institute, providing inter-regional professional development to campus teams of educators and school leaders, as well as district leaders, who want to improve RTI implementation. We will use the Campus Needs Assessment Tool to build connections between colleagues, address frequently asked questions and common implementation issues related to the areas of instruction, intervention, and assessment. The Institute is free and open to all Texas educators, regardless of where in Texas you live. (Yes, you can cross regional ESC boundaries!)

Register your team to learn more about the Campus Needs Assessment Tool, enhance your campus RTI implementation plans, and connect with colleagues. Please be aware that to register for a session or conference via the ESC 20 website, you must first create a profile. Please visit the ESC-20 Website Connect 20 to create a new user profile if needed. When you create your profile select “Region 20” as your Region and then select “University of Texas at Austin” as your District/Site and as your Campus/School.

Topics Include:

  • Develop an understanding of RTI as a framework for learning and behavior
  • Explore assessments and the use of student data to inform RTI implementation
  • Examine critical aspects of elementary and secondary literacy instruction
