2. Do you know what the Response to Intervention process is and how it should integrate with Early Intervening Services?

3. Are your teachers using data, including effective progress monitoring practices, to inform their instruction?

4. What research-based interventions are being used with struggling/at risk learners in your district?

5. Are you ensuring that your RTI initiative is a collaborative effort with curriculum directors in strategic leadership positions?

6. Do you have a plan for continued professional development to ensure success of your district's implementation of RTI?

7. Are you aware of the research that demonstrates the potential benefits of RTI implementation in student behavior as well as academic performance?

8. Do you have data to show whether RTI is impacting student progress and the number of referrals to special education?
