Subject: Response to Intervention/Three-Tiered Model Opportunity

Source: Heidi Atkins Lieberman, Assistant Commissioner

Intended Audience: Superintendents, Principals, Directors, Teacher Leaders

Date: January 12, 2010

This is a reminder about the four upcoming Response to Intervention (RtI) training opportunities to be held across the state over the next year.  This is the same event that occurred last June in the Southwest region (Springfield).  The registration cost of the events listed below is $125 and includes breakfast, lunch, and materials for both days.

Four of the Regional Professional Development Centers will host awareness level RtI trainings in the following locations:

South Central RPDC (Rolla):  February 22-23, 2010 Southeast RPDC (Cape Girardeau):  March 17-18, 2010 Central RPDC (Warrensburg):  May 24-25, 2010 Northeast/Northwest (Kirksville):  August 9-10, 2010

The training will feature presentations from the national perspective about what RtI is and is not, its alignment with other initiatives, as well as the state's perspective about where we are in terms of three-tiered models of intervention.  Schools currently implementing RtI will be showcased along with discussion about resources to assist districts in exploring initial steps to implementation.

Planning for this training was a joint effort among the Regional Professional Development Centers, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the North Central Regional Resource Center, the National Center on RtI, and the Mid-Continent Comprehensive Center.
