Learn our process for RtI in a succinct, professional learning community type format. The process uses problem solving and questioning strategies while assessing RtI needs for the “Whole Child.” Data for classroom, campus and district use will be quantified through a user- friendly rubric demonstrating how informed, well evidenced decisions are made for each child and ongoing data is collected. Expect an interactive, hands-on learning environment using your own iPad or tablet.

Learning outcome:
- Learners will be able to have a clear RtI process easily adapted for individual district/ campus needs.
- Learn about technology uses which support the RtI process.
- Learners will be able to network with other professionals as they work with the RtI process.

Audience:
- New data user
- Experienced data user
- Advanced data user
- District leadership
- Curriculum and Instruction

Our district is located between Austin and San Antonio. It covers 600 square miles with 27 schools. We currently use district written data systems coordinated through our technology team. Our presentation team is the district RtI Coordinator, the Director of Special Programs, and the Director of Special Education.
