How do we plan and implement RtI?
Planning for and implementing RtI requires a systematic approach. There are 3 main stages to RtI planning and implementation:
Consensus building :: Infrastructure development :: Implementation
Each stage has well-defined tasks for RtI leadership teams to complete as you plan for implementation. Each of these tasks should be completed before moving on to the next stage.
The National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) has developed blueprints for district and school teams to use as you plan and develop each stage. Each blueprint contains tasks, resources, and action item tools to help teams efficiently and effectively complete each stage.
To identify and track the progress of action items, use the Action Planning Template all throughout your Consensus building, Infrastructure development, and Implementation.
Blueprints for planning and implementation
During infrastructure development, teams answer the 10 key questions relating to RtI and current practice.

One of the challenges that comes with implementing RtI is developing the school schedule. There are several sample schedules available from schools across the United States as well as a scheduling tool that will help you set your school's schedule.
