Teacher collaboration and professional learning communities are frequently mentioned in articles and reports on school improvement. Schools and teachers benefit in a variety of ways when teachers work together. A small but growing body of evidence suggests a positive relationship between teacher collaboration and student achievement.

Benefits for Schools and Teachers

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?
