Our mission is to support schools through the phases and sustainability of their RtI system implementation. The core reason that the Wisconsin RtI Center exists is to develop, coordinate and provide high-quality professional development and technical assistance… as well as to gather, analyze and disseminate RtI implementation data to enhance the support of schools’ implementation.
Principles for RtI in Wisconsin: 1. RtI is for ALL children and ALL educators. 2. RtI must support and provide value to effective practices. 3. Success for RtI lies within the classroom through collaboration. 4. RtI is a framework for academics and behavior together. 5. RtI supports and provides value to the use of multiple assessments to inform instructional practices. 6. RtI is something you do and not necessarily something you buy. 7. RtI emerges from and supports research and evidence based practice.
