Re: Professional Development

This is a great question. I would add to this, when do you do it?? How do you find time to fit professional development for RTI into the school schedule. Can someone comment?

Re: Professional Development

Our district has one early release 1/2 day per month, and a full day of professional development per quarter; this has been adequate to discuss teaching techniques for differentiation and RtI process. Deeper instruction has been through our local BOCES.

Colorado Department of Education has online offerings for credit solely dedicated to thr RtI process from counceling, reading of data, and implementation. This could be a model other states could follow.

There are several week long seminars, usually conducted by Sopris West, during the summer months. I have attended four out of the last five; they are very insightful and do conduct discussion which include educators, administrators, managers, counselors, psychologists, and parents, from all over the country. Collaboration on issues relating to RtI have also been conducted here by CDE focus groups. You leave with a full range of perspective from problems and issues in large and tiny districts alike.

There are options out there.

Re: Professional Development

Our principal uses staff meetings after school to provide RTI training.  Trainings generally last 60-75 minutes and focus on reading or math.  We are a small independent district and all 5 elementary schools are Title I schools.  Our school population is 95% free/reduced lunch, has poor attendance, and is a very transient population.  Each year we have a large number of students referred for intervention.  The frustrating part is we begin the interventions and then the student moves, then may return a few days or a few weeks later.  It's difficult to gauge if interventions help or not.

Re: Professional Development

Diane- Would it be possible to see some agendas and topics covered during your staff meetings? We are moving in the same direction. Many thanks.

Re: Professional Development

Hello,

An in-service practicum of policy, with an accountble assessment of approaches to resources, which may create an emphasis on barriers that define limitations, will raise issues, that are open for discussion concerning our advancement within the public sector.

Thank You,
