Using Improvement Cycles to Improve Implementation of Evidence-Based Practices
This final column of the series is focused on how school and district teams can continue the forward motion toward positive student outcomes using data via continuous improvement cycles. We draw on the work of technical assistance providers and researchers from the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN; https://nirn.fpg.unc.edu) and the Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS; https://www.pbis.org/). The key takeaway of this series is to describe how implementation of EBPs in schools can be enhanced when implementation teams “invest in the systems to support their implementation” (Kittelman et al., 2020, p. 96).
