The Tennessee Department of Education and Tennessee Behavior Supports Project together will identify Model of Demonstration schools and/or districts and ask these schools to participate in coaching networks and communities of practice to assist in implementation efforts of other schools.
The Model of Demonstration Schools process is constructed to recognize schools for successful implementation of Response to Instruction and Intervention for Behavior (RTI2-B). The purpose of this recognition is to promote schools sharing their practices, share examples of how the framework is being implemented, and celebrate each school’s effort and dedication to meeting the needs of all students. Along with other forms of recognition, Model of Demonstration Schools will be featured on our website, publicized during trainings and workshops, and shared with TDOE. The deadline to submit applications for 2016 is over; applications for 2017 will be due December 1, 2017.
