The key function of the members of the DIT is to ensure that implementation capacity is developed at the school level in all schools, and that collectively the schools and District build the infrastructure needed for high fidelity implementation.
RITs develop the capacity in Districts to make full use of one or more EBP and/or EII with 60% or more of the schools/students in the region. RITs also are a conduit for information that needs to flow back to the SMT and SDT.
The purpose of the State Design Team (SDT) is to bring the initiatives together to work on the one thing they all have in common – the plans for each initiative need to be executed (implemented) if they are to be effective and sustainable and add to education success.
The SMT works with purveyors and intermediaries to develop knowledge and skills related to increasing implementation and scaling-up capacity. They work closely with other teams to promote alignment of systems as EBP/EII scaling-up decisions emerge.
SWIFT Unscripted invited Caryn Ward from NIRN to provide an insightful interview on Implementation Drivers and their role in school transformation.

This tool captures research-based behaviors, practices, and products to inform supports for coaching of targeted coaching.
Coaching targets four general phases of learning. In this interactive lesson, learn about those phases and how to use data to identify your recipient’s current phase of learning so that you can use your coaching supports wisely.
In this interactive lesson, you will learn to deliver effective and efficient prompting, performance feedback, and scaffolding.
This interactive lesson introduces a research-based approach to the coaching process and its essential components.
This tool captures research-based behaviors, practices, and products to inform supports for coaching of coaching.

This brief provides ten principles to guide development of school improvement systems.
Review a set of 5 scenarios. For each scenario mark one of the following: A) Exploration B) Installation C) Initial Implementation D) Full Implementation E) None of these
Before starting “something new,” it’s important to review what already exists and how your district is using existing resources. This activity can help delineate how much is already being asked of staff and determine if the “new” will fit with the “existing.”
This action plan provides coaches with a tool to set goals with coaching recipients and develop plans to achieve those goals.
The District Capacity Assessment (DCA) Action Plan is a tool is used for identifying and planning out action items based on DCA data.
A Decision Support Data System (DSDS) is a system for identifying, collecting, and analyzing data that are useful to the staff and leadership of the implementing agencies. The data system needs to provide timely, accurate, and reliable data for decision-making.
