Prior to expanding towards Full Implementation, it is important for the district team to access new research and revisit its vision statement to renew its commitment to the selected initiative. Once re-commitment is established, the district implementation team develops and executes its expansion plan by revisiting and completing the readiness assessment, planning forms and onboarding and training of new site staff. Full implementation is achieved when data shows that 50% or more of practitioners are implementing the new practices with fidelity and improved outcomes. Ongoing staff training and coaching needs should be met through amending the original technical assistance plan implemented during initial implementation and include using the most current evidence-based practices. Leadership should confirm the district's capacity, supports, and desire to expand.
