Professional Development Links

Because student populations and depth of RtI framework implementation vary from school to school, it is expected that no two districts or schools will have the same professional development needs. Ongoing professional development about the delivery of the core program, as well as differentiated instruction, data analysis, data-based decision-making, behavioral intervention plans, classroom management, Student Assistance Team (SAT) process, Section 504, and instruction/interventions for culturally-different learners are just a few of the topics within the RtI framework that districts and schools will want to look at when assessing and designing their local professional development plans.

Local professional development plans and activities also need to align with state rule at 6.65.2 NMAC:
