Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here. Our work at the Wisconsin RtI Center supports schools and districts as they develop their implementation teams to provide equitable, multi-level systems of supports.

How do I know if my school is implementing?

Schools and education systems are unique, complex settings. Schools and districts across Wisconsin take their own implementation journey based on their goals, values, and beliefs. Our regional technical assistance coordinators (TACs) guide teams through the implementation process by providing training and technical assistance. Some schools are implementing with fidelity (as intended), while some schools are taking their first steps. If you are not sure where your school is along the journey, ask your principal.

What might already be in place?

If you’ve heard Responsive to Intervention (RtI) or Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), you are one step closer to understanding an equitable, multi-level system of supports. RtI and PBIS come together in one cohesive, comprehensive system to the meet the needs of the whole child.

An equitable, multi-level system of supports has three content areas that may already be in place at your school:

  • Mathematics (RtI)
  • Reading (RtI)
  • Behavior (PBIS)

Wisconsin’s Equitable Multi-level Systems of Supports Framework is an evidence-based practice (know and shown to work). It provides schools and districts with a vision to integrate their system to provide behavioral, social, emotional, and academic supports. It includes all educators and all learners, considers the whole child and comprehensive system, and attends to equitable access, opportunity, and outcomes.

How do I integrate PBIS and RtI into one equitable system?

Success and durability of an equitable, multi-level system of supports depends on coherent implementation across the system: state, region, district, school, grade and content teams, and classroom. Contact us to get started.

How can I contribute as an individual?

It takes a dedicated team to implement an equitable, multi-level system of supports. We ask all school and district staff members to support their implementation team and champion their school’s and district’s initiatives.
