Site Implementation Teams

Site Implementation Teams (SITs) who are comprised of 5 members (including a site administrator) should continue to meet. SITs plan and monitor CALI Reads implementation in accordance with the Fidelity of Implementation (FIT) tool, communicate literacy goals and practices schoolwide, and identify areas of strength and need to support literacy outcomes schoolwide. Participant time commitment is approximately 10 hours/annually. The SIT team will:

  1. Meet on a monthly to quarterly basis.
  2. Complete the Fidelity of Implementation Tool (FIT) twice annually.
  3. Collaborate with the CALI Reads Site Coach.
  4. * Site administrator also participates in triennial District Support Team meetings.

 

Regional Workshops

Each school site should identify up to 6 Special Education and/or Intervention teachers to attend the one-day Regional Workshop. The Regional Workshop will be hosted at the District Office or suitable alterative location for all three of the district’s (or district consortium’s) participating school sites. Participant time commitment is 8 hours/participant annually.

 

Family Literacy Workshop

Family involvement in a student’s education is a key factor in promoting student achievement and success. As part of project participation, each school site is asked to facilitate an Annual Family Workshop focused on supporting home literacy. Sites are encouraged to identify a site lead to plan and/or facilitate the event, such as a Family Literacy Night. Schools site are free to select the literacy topic of the Family Workshop. To support, CALI Reads provides: a) $500/per site to offset expenses, b) offers pre-developed materials, and c) encourages collaboration with the CALI Reads Site Coach for event planning and facilitation. Site Lead time commitment is 4-5 hours/workshop lead annually.
