Engaged Implementation Teams

Implementing this change in how reading instruction and intervention occurs at the school is a process of systems and culture change that unfolds over the course of the five years of Project READ, proceeding in stages from exploration and installation to initial implementation and eventually sustainable implementation.

Site Implementation Teams (SITs), comprised of teachers and administrators guide and facilitate implementation, which looks different at each school site. Tools, such as the Fidelity of Implementation Rubric (FIR), and coaching are provided to support the SITs. In addition, Leadership Academy webinars and regional meetings provide training in facilitating systems change as well as specific content for implementing reading strategies and intervention programs.

A representative State Leadership Team advises Project READ, while the Project READ Implementation Team is responsible for the development and day-to-day operation of Project READ. Thus, teams at every level are involved in communicating with one another to address what is needed for Project READ to be successfully implemented at the school sites.

Project READ supports school-level site implementation teams and leaders in guiding and facilitating this systems change process.
