For New RTA Staff

Published: 6/21/2013 8:57 AM

Welcome to the world of Read to Achieve (RTA)!

There are over 300 schools across the state that have RTA grants. We are delighted to have you as part of the RTA team at your school. On this page you will find the important information you will need to get started.

 

Meet With Your RTA School Team...

One of your first tasks is to schedule time to meet with your RTA school team for an overview of the program and the upcoming year. Working with the RTA grant is a collaborative process. The RTA team (RTA intervention teacher, data coordinator, and principal) should meet on a regular basis to discuss appropriate grant implementation, upcoming events, testing windows etc. The expectation is that no one person is solely responsible for implementation of the RTA grant but that it be shared.
 
RTA communication (usually in the form of email) is sent to the entire RTA school team (the Principal, Intervention Teacher, and Data Coordinator).
This serves as a cross-reference to ensure at least one or two members of the team have received/read the email and can relate the information to team members. It also prevents critical information from being overlooked, reduces the risk of communication gaps, and helps ensure the school remains in compliance with their grant.
