Ongoing staff supports are initiated to monitor and strengthen evidence-based interventions, e.g., regular staff meetings, coaching, refresher mini-trainings on pertinent inclusion topics, professional learning communities to support collaborative service models.

  • Now the fun begins! Practitioners begin to access PD materials, select a focus within the PD initiative, and adapt their teaching practices with coaching support.

  • Here, incremental change should be the goal, and small steps must be celebrated. The Literacy Team should be on the lookout for practitioners making documented adaptations and find ways of disseminating these successes.

  • Coaching should not be evaluative here. Coaching should focus entirely on supporting and expanding implementation in the classroom.

  • Early and often, document positive student change.
