Who Should Attend?
Individuals at the district or building level with responsibilities to provide direct support for RtI implementation.

This strand is designed to explore issues related to coaching staff through various phases of RtI implementation. Presenters will provide strategies and troubleshooting related to consensus building, infrastructure development, and implementation. Examples and activities will address coaching practices that apply to RtI for both social and academic domains.

Participants who register for this strand should have already had an overview of RtI and have a good understanding of the underlying practices and beliefs. This session assumes decisions with RtI have, or are, being made and will direct attention to the role of coaching in supporting data driven decision-making.
