District Readiness for Tier 2/Tier 3 Implementation

posted Mar 7, 2013, 12:22 PM by Katelyn Lamb
District level commitment and readiness are needed to ensure Tier 3 fidelity and effective outcomes. These system commitments need to be established before training teams on interventions. For example, district leaders from Rantoul City SD 137 engaged in the readiness process by using the Tier 2/Tier 3 Readiness Checklists and committing administrative leadership to guide the implementation. As part of the readiness process, district and school level leaders participated in a Tier 2/Tier 3 Administrators’ Academy (AA #1241). Next steps include allocating staff for Tier 2/Tier 3 External Coaching and implementing universal screening for behavior district-wide.
