2 Providing Tiered Instruction and Intervention

3 How Will We Get There?

4 How Are We Doing? Utahs Title I Distinguished School of the Year (2006) UCIRA and IRA Exemplary Reading Program (2007)

5 State Language Arts Criterion-Referenced Test

6 Practicalities Common vision and frame of reference across district, school, and classrooms Opportunity for backward design of literacy programs (district and/or school-wide) Context for all decisions (human resource allocations, budgets, curriculum adoption, professional development, etc.) Incremental (yet cohesive) progress

7 Potential Pitfalls Administrators catch vision and are ready to move forward before teachers have had an opportunity for understanding and buy-in. Principals must be purposeful in bringing faculty along. This approach requires different thinking. Therefore all stakeholders must have an operational understanding to avoid a weak- link sabotage.

8 Potential Pitfalls, cont. Change initiatives must be an integral part of all professional development activities. Change initiatives must be communicated and evaluated as an expectation for all.
