Pulaski County has established a district leadership team to support and monitor schools in the implementation of RTI systems related to academics and behavior. The core membership of our district leadership team includes the Elementary Curriculum Supervisor, Middle and High School Curriculum Supervisor, CDIP/CSIP Coordinator, Director of Special Education Services, Administrative Assistant for Special Education Services, and the District PBIS Coordinator. This team meets at least quarterly to monitor various aspects of implementation fidelity and student outcome data.
Our district leadership team provides technical assistance, training and support for schools as they develop systems of intervention and data collection procedures. To assist with this the district leadership team has developed this website as well as a guidance document called the Pulaski County Intervention System (PCIS) which serve as reference tools for schools as they implement systems of academic and behavioral support.
The district leadership team uses a variety of tools to monitor implementation and assess student outcomes related to our system of interventions. School implementation teams complete an annual "self assessment" of implementation efforts using a tool provided by their curriculum supervisor. School implementation teams also compile data from specified outcome measures into an RTI Report Card (also provided by their curriculum supervisor). These sources of data assist school implementation teams in developing an RTI Action Plan which guides schools at their own pace through phases of RTI implementation.
