Oregon Response to Instruction & Intervention Implementation Coach, Tigard-Tualatin School District
Jon Potter is currently a RTI Implementation Coach with the Oregon Response to Instruction and Intervention Project (ORTIi). He previously served as a school psychologist and RTI coach with Heartland Area Education Agency (AEA) in Iowa, supporting school districts in developing and implementing intervention plans for individual students with a high level of need, as well as building academic and behavior systems to support all students. In his current role, he has worked with dozens of Oregon school districts to help develop and sustain multi-tiered systems aimed at improving reading outcomes for all students. His interests include data-based decision making, developing positive school cultures that can sustain systems change, and evidence-based practices based in the Science of Reading.
Sustainability is the Goal: Leading and Implementing Complex Change
With a charge to adopt, implement, and sustain MTSS systems in all 42 elementary schools, a district leadership team set about to assess organizational readiness and the knowledge, will, and skill of our leaders. This team developed a multi-year action plan to create a data-based culture and commitment to continuous improvement. In year two of implementation, enthusiasm for this effort has remained constant and early data indicators are encouraging.
