Multi-Tiered Systems of Support for Reading: Training Provider Opportunity

The American Institutes for Research (AIR) announces a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking qualified entities to provide training and support to elementary schools on implementing multi-tiered systems of support in reading (MTSS-R). The selected training provider will collaborate with the study team in a large-scale, randomized study of MTSS-R in Grades 1 and 2 for the Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education. Interested providers must be able to train and support the implementation of MTSS-R in approximately 50 schools in 10 districts throughout the United States for 2 years (2020–2022). The comprehensive MTSS-R model will include Tier I instruction, Tier II intervention, screening and progress monitoring, and MTSS-R infrastructure (i.e., school-based MTSS-R teams and a district-based MTSS-R coach). The RFP is now available on AIR’s website. Responses are due March 4, 2019.
