EPS RTI Grant Program
EPS/School Specialty's Literacy and Intervention division, is pleased to announce a new grant program designed to assist school districts in the development and improvement of their Response to Intervention (RTI) programs. Recognizing the power of RTI to ensure that all students are successful, EPS/School Specialty has developed this grant program to support districts in their efforts to narrow the achievement gap.
Grant Application Overview
As part of the competitive process for the EPS RTI Grant Program, school districts are asked to submit a proposal that provides a detailed description of their planned or current RTI initiatives, a compelling statement of need for more RTI instructional resources, an implementation timeline, and information about their plans for evaluating their initiatives.
Grantees Will Receive
As part of the granting process, a committee of RTI experts will review each district's approach to reading and/or math intervention. Selected applicants will receive:
- A face-to-face review and discussion of their intervention program
- An in-depth analysis of their approach, plus recommendations for improvement
- Support of up to 35% of the program cost (materials and professional development) to support the purchase of EPS RTI solutions
- Access to an array of proven intervention programs and products, as well as Professional Development services, ongoing coaching, and support for district administrators and teachers
