The author makes recommendations for putting the RTI process in motion and helps school leaders formulate a comprehensive assessment plan that includes an assessment calendar and a data management system; design a year-long staff development plan to train teachers in using data for making instructional decisions; use data in year-group, teacher, and parent meetings; and motivate staff for optimum success without overwhelming them.
