From 2010 through 2012, AIR helped restructure and facilitate meetings with Washington’s state leadership team and to develop an “essential components” document that was presented to the State Board of Education to enhance buy-in among stakeholders. In addition, AIR supported the development, administration, analysis, and synthesis of a survey across the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction that helped the office identify overlapping areas within the office related to RTI efforts.
The Center on Response to Intervention and the National Center on Intensive Intervention have established a standard process to evaluate the scientific rigor of commercially available tools and interventions that can be used in an RTI context. Together, these two Centers conduct annual reviews of tools and interventions.
The Center's Technical Review Committee is made up of national experts in one or more of the critical components of RTI—screening, progress monitoring, and tiered instruction—and also have strong methodological backgrounds and expertise. The members of the TRC are identified below, as well as the specific criteria that were used to guide the TRC membership selection process.

The services provided by our staff are designed to assist states, districts, and schools to successfully implement and scale-up MTSS/RTI and its components. To determine what services may be needed, staff collaboratively problem-solve with the requesting state, district, or school to (a) identify and prioritize the areas of need, and (b) select evidence-based practices that can best meet those needs.
Ask the Expert videos are short videos that answer common questions around MTSS/RTI. Watch a video for your own learning, share one as a discussion starter in staff development or embed one into a presentation you are giving.
