The National Education Association (NEA) is pleased to announce that they will be releasing the first three sections of a new multi-module on-line professional development program entitled "Mastering RTI: A Step by Step Approach" on the NEA Academy Web site this summer. The course includes five modules: 1) an overview of RTI, 2) essential elements of RTI, 3) the collaborative team process, 4) identification of students with specific learning disabilities using RTI data and 5) RTI systems and supports. NEA gratefully acknowledges the RTI Action Network's
assistance in producing this new professional development resource. Created as a joint partnership project by the NEA, American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), members of these three organizations will be able to take the course at a discounted price. Visit the NEA Academy site
at the end of July for more information.
