RTI: Implementation - Innovation

The Innovation Stage highlights the use of problem solving teams and the continuation of the development of interventions as they apply to improving efficiency.  A school enters the Innovation Stage as administration and staff increase understanding and ownership of the RTI framework in a manner that is reflected in decision making.  The use of empirical data to drive decisions in curriculum use, instructional delivery, remediation, enrichment, professional development, and classroom management stems from both student academic achievement and teacher proficiency.

  • Teachers move beyond data collection and organization to interpretation and application [response]
    • Data interpretation reflects an understanding of curriculum that reaches beyond the mere identification of a skill deficit and includes analysis of assessment and a summary of occurrence that identifies executable skills, strategies, and heuristics to be used to develop appropriate remediation practices
    • Data application leads to remediation practices that take into consideration
      • Identification of BIG IDEAS with which the student(s) is struggling
      • Description of the specific strategy or skill within [or across] the BIG IDEA
      • Consideration of best practices that facilitate student learning
      • Alignment of best practices with content and approach initially provided within the curriculum/program of use
  • Effective Problem Solving Teams have a clear understanding and procedure for executing their objectives
    • Framework Analysis Collaborative Team [FACT]
      • Evaluate the effectiveness of core programs
      • Analyze student data to identify appropriate placement within tiers
