Kerry Bollman is instructional services coordinator and reading center director for St. Croix River Education District. She consults regularly with general and special education staff on research-based and data-driven assessment and instruction, and on developing schoolwide organizational frameworks around problem-solving teams to address the needs of all students. The district has received national recognition for its use of these RTI systems.
Previously, as an intervention specialist in the suburban Chicago area, Kerry supported implementation of behavioral and academic programming for students with significant disabilities and provided coaching for and later coordinated a statewide grant to support problem-solving teams in elementary and secondary schools. Her areas of expertise include curriculum-based assessment and evaluation, early literacy, designing and evaluating academic interventions, and data-based decision making within an RTI framework.
She was instrumental to the original design and currently supports statewide training and evaluation for the Minnesota Reading Corps, a tutoring program that harnesses the power of volunteers to provide one-on-one and small-group reading practice to students age 3 to grade 3. Kerry has published several articles on RTI topics and provides training and consultation locally and nationally.
She earned a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University and completed the Specialist in School Psychology program at Illinois State University.
