U.S. Virgin Island

AIR staff, in partnership with the University of Maryland, began providing professional development and support on the fundamental constructs of RTI in elementary, middle, and high schools for schools in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) in August 2012 and 2013. In coordination with the USVI Department of Education, the AIR team will work with local education agencies in the territory over the next three years to establish a common structure and language for RTI implementation, align it with the Common Core State Standards, and provide professional development and technical assistance services for participating districts, with the goal of preparing every student to graduate and successfully pursue postsecondary education and career opportunities.
