Welcome to our website, the hardest working member of our project team!

The Building RTI Capacity for Implementation in Texas Schools 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 for more than 10 years, we promote evidence-based practices and resources to build Texas schools’ capacity for implementing Response to Intervention (RTI). Our goal is to help schools use RTI to increase student achievement by reducing the number of students with learning and behavior difficulties.

Our team creates and disseminates information, resources, and tools to enhance instructional decision-making in the areas of reading, mathematics, and behavior. An additional focus is promoting the success of students in foster care.

Explore our website to find resources to enhance RTI implementation on your campus. You’ll find information, instructional strategies, and tools for campus leaders, teachers, interventionists, student evaluation personnel, counselors, and parents—all the stakeholders who support student success in your school.
