- Focuses on evidence-based practices and implementation.
- Provides dynamic and useful tool for sites to create 3 year continuous improvement plans.
- Outlines action steps based on adult actions needed for fidelity of implementation.
- Incorporates fidelity measures, monitoring tools, and evaluation into the school’s continuous improvement process.
