= Use data as a systemic problem-solving process to differentiate instruction, intensify instruction, and apply intervention methods to meet the needs of all students using scientifically based instructional strategies and techniques. 

= Identify appropriate criteria for selection of materials to include in student portfolios for ongoing progress monitoring and implementation of curriculum with content geared toward meeting the instructional needs of Tiers II and III students (RTI) using effective tiered intervention strategies.
