Best Practices at Tier 3 provides proven, practical tools and strategies to advance student success at the secondary level. Building on the RTI at Work model, the authors offer a framework for delivering support to students who have fallen the furthest behind, and then show how to leverage existing resources to meet their academic and behavior needs. If we are to ensure every student obtains a high school diploma and college or career readiness, there is no time to lose! This book is an essential read for any practitioner who wants to make Tier 3 intervention a success in their schools or districts.”

Laura Granger, assistant superintendent of educational services, Sylvan Union School District, California

Best Practices at Tier 3, Secondary offers excellent guidance for educators seeking to build, implement, and evaluate a truly effective multitiered system of supports for all students. The authors start with foundational work to build effective teams fostering mutual trust and open communication, and then present the incremental steps needed to create systems change that helps students who struggle most. This book is the perfect toolkit for educators to ensure the success of all learners.”

Rachel Brown-Chidsey, professor emerita of educational and school psychology, University of Southern Maine

Best Practices at Tier 3, Secondary is exactly what secondary educators need to build their capacity for ‘just-in-time’ interventions for students. The authors provide a rich set of real-life examples, proven practices, and research-based strategies that takes the guesswork out of implementing academic and behavioral systems of support within the confines of master schedules, resources, and content-driven mindsets. Additionally, educators will learn how to create and implement high-quality instruction to reach all students as a means of prevention, rather than perpetuating systems and pedagogy that keep students off track from acquiring the necessary skills and knowledge for college and career readiness.”

JoDee Marcellin, director of District-to-District Program, California Education Partners

Best Practices at Tier 3 is a must-have resource for successful implementation of Tier 3 interventions at the secondary level. Written by experienced practitioners for practitioners, with proven instructional strategies and practical, helpful tools, this book is layered with a wealth of knowledge to assist any school on its journey to ensure all students learn.”

Lynne Walker, education coordinator, OK GEAR UP, Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education

“I applaud the authors of Best Practices at Tier 3, Secondary for bringing to life what it takes to make intensive interventions work within a secondary school’s comprehensive, multitiered system of supports. They equip educators to inclusively meet students’ needs and offer a road map for learning with a myriad of tools, real-life examples, and action items. This book is a celebration of how educators make important things happen with and for each and every student in their school.”

Dawn Miller, associate director of technical assistance, SWIFT Education Center, University of Kansas
