Dear District Administrator,

Welcome to the September issue of Achievement Today. In this issue, we are focusing on the incredible opportunity we share to improve achievement for all children.

1.Have you considered the potential of RTI to unify your school district by eliminating the silos of special and general education?

2.Are you embedding the key components of RTI into your school improvement process to maximize achievement for all students?

3.Do you know the Return on Intervention for your district, including the return on your investment dollar, any change in the referral rate for special education, and which interventions are working?

ARE SCHOOL DISTRICTS DOING A GOOD JOB AT IMPLEMENTING RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION?

And how can administrators measure the success of their intervention strategies? To find out, Achievement Today interviewed David P. Riley, executive director of the Urban Special Education Leadership Collaborative.

X-Factor Winners


Larry Carr and I appreciate District Administration for choosing our district, Mohawk Area School District in Pennsylvania, to win the $30,000 X-Factor Student Achievement Award, sponsored by AutoSkill International Inc., last summer. You cannot believe how much the students love using the room and enjoy coming to physical education/wellness.
