Item 4. Building Implementation Team (BIT) meets regularly to analyze school-wide reading data and develops an action plan
To successfully implement all nine RTI Components it is imperative for each school to have a building implementation team. Building Implementation Teams (BITs) are responsible for ensuring that all staff in their building are adequately trained and supported in implementing RTI components. A primary role of this team is to analyze each grade level data to determine common grade level needs and areas of support.
