The Cheyenne Mountain team has outlined the following areas as priorities as the school continues to improve its RTI approach: * Develop a standard protocol "bank" of interventions for both academic and behavioral concerns. * Identify and educate staff on methods of differentiating instruction, with a stronger focus on curriculumbased measurement (CBM) and on preassessment and postassessment strategies to monitor student progress. * Improve communication with parents of students requiring interventions. * Review and adopt progress-monitoring tools, such as CBMs and recording protocols, to monitor student data and movement throughout the tiers. Implementation of RTI, particularly at the middle school level, where specific recommendations are currently lacking, will be an ongoing process of identifying appropriate instructional approaches and related interventions, providing professional development to staff charged with implementation, and ensuring that the process results in improved academic achievement for all students.
