The Summit on RTI at Work™

Austin, Texas | January 18–20, 2023
  • $769.00 per person for teams of 5 or more

  • Solution Tree is in frequent contact with the staff at event venues to get updates about new or updated COVID-19 guidance from local and state officials related to events and public health. We have proactively taken steps to promote the health and safety of our attendees, associates, and staff.

There is a universal truth—an undeniable fact—that impacts every student and educator, in every classroom, at every school: all students do not learn the same way. As educators, we can assume that by the end of every daily lesson, unit of study, grading term, and school year, some students will not have mastered all the essential curriculum they have been taught. For any school or district truly dedicated to equity and ensuring all students learn at high levels, responding effectively when students struggle—especially now, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on student learning—is top of mind.

Response to Intervention (RTI/MTSS) is proven to be the best way to systematically respond when students don’t learn. According to acclaimed researcher John Hattie, RTI has an exceptional impact rate of 1.29 standard deviations of growth per year, which is equivalent to two to three grade levels of growth in a single school year (2020). RTI is not a series of implementation steps to cross off on a list, but an ongoing, collaborative process to ensure each child receives the time and support needed to achieve success. Our RTI at Work™ approach—which is built upon the proven PLC at Work® process—leverages the expertise of the entire school staff to ensure high levels of achievement for all students.

Deepen your expertise with sessions on behavior, scheduling, English learners, leadership teams, progress monitoring, and more designed to increase individual and collective efficacy. Learn directly from experts and practitioners who have firsthand experience implementing the RTI at Work process.

Attending the Summit on RTI at Work will allow teams to:

  • Move beyond survival mode and prepare both new and veteran teachers to support students who have fallen behind grade-level expectations
  • Create and target time in your master schedule for interventions, intensive remediation, and extension
  • Identify grade- or course-specific essential content, skills, and behavior
  • Acquire practical solutions to current roadblocks and challenges that your school is facing
  • Apply research-based behavior/SEL interventions
  • Forge team bonds and comradery as you work to craft an intentional intervention plan that explicitly articulates actionable steps
  • Effectively deal with resistance
  • Create and propel productive habits and routines to ensure every student’s learning needs are met
  • Create a school leadership team to steer the shift to a culture of collective responsibility
  • Develop a culturally responsive plan for English learners and underserved students

  • Gain proven intervention strategies for math and literacy
  • Build a schoolwide intervention team to address complex issues such as motivation, attendance, and behavior
  • Stay focused as new challenges arise
