Louisiana

From 2010 through 2012, AIR helped Louisiana develop a guidance document that provided common language for RTI implementation, and a funding document that supplied examples of potential funding streams for RTI implementation. AIR supported the state with tools, resources, and language for these documents and helped facilitate leadership team meetings while the documents were being developed. AIR also helped develop, conduct, analyze, and synthesize a statewide needs assessment survey of schools and districts. Louisiana used the resulting data to drive its RTI effort. In addition, AIR trainers presented at Louisiana conferences and to the state’s leadership team about RTI implementation, the essential components of RTI, and the available tools and resources that AIR provides.
