The SSIP Implementation Teams completes this checklist quarterly to monitor the development and use of core implementation components in the development of the State Systemic Improvement Plan.
This 5-minute presentation provides a quick overview of Implementation Science and the National Implementation Research Network's Active Implementation Frameworks.
Education systems and the units within those systems are highly variable. An implementation infrastructure in the form of Implementation Teams can be developed to account for the variability.
The purpose of this Brief is to define the variables a state or district leadership team may wish to consider as they determine if they are “ready” to invest in the scaling‐up of an innovation in education.
The purpose of this Brief is to provide a framework that state leadership teams and others can use to develop the capacity to make effective, statewide, and sustained use of evidence-based practices and other innovations.

The Coaching System Development Worksheet can be used to initiate those early discussions about the importance of coaching and the facilitative supports administrators need to consider to ensure a systemic commitment to coaching.
The Training Plan Template is designed to help guide your team’s planning process in developing a training program. This tool can be used to guide discussions around rationale, core components, knowledge, skills, outcomes and assessment.

Are there barriers and/or facilitators in our current system that may be related to EBP implementation? What are the next right steps? Use this handout to help identify issues that may be facilitating or hindering implementation.
Communication is important for any program/innovation. Developing and linking communication protocols for new or existing programs establishes a transparent feedback process and furthers the development of a hospitable policy, funding, and operational environment.
This activity encourages you to identify potential Implementation Team members and responsibilities of team types, as well as consider team support strategies.
You have decided to explore the potential of having an Implementation Team in your building, district, region or state. Looking across your organization, is there an existing team that could be repurposed? Or, do you need to start fresh?
Reflect on your current organization. How would you describe your system, organization or team environment? Use one of the planning tools to assess your environment, then consider plans for potential improvement.
Jot down different EBPs/EIIs that you have experienced, participated in or led and pick one of those initiatives that has been in place the longest. Then, “drive around” the Implementation Drivers diagram and reflect on the questions provided.
How can we take these good ideas that work in some places, and get them to work in all places so all children in all schools would have access? Listen to Dean Fixsen and Karen Blase from (NIRN) discuss active implementation and scaling up. [running time 4 min. 44 sec.]
Karen Blase from the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) discusses the importance of Implementation Science for education.
Action planning around the Implementation Drivers is a vital and ongoing responsibility of Implementation Teams. This planning tool is designed to help your teams in the action planning process.
This planning tool, including examples, provides the opportunity for Implementation Teams to have in-depth discussions about each Driver toward action planning. Completing this process is important for moving from the Exploration Stage to the Installation Stage.
