TIES Inclusive Education Roadmap RETIRED

Description of the RISE

Share this page

The RISE is a two-part self-reflection tool that supports a team of stakeholders to move their system toward the creation of equitable and inclusive schools. The RISE can be used at any of the following administrative levels: state departments of education, regional departments, school districts, and/or schools. To create truly inclusive systems and bring those to scale, it is essential that multiple administrative levels work together in a coordinated fashion. That said, the RISE can also be used by one administrative level alone. 

The RISE has five Focus Areas. Each Focus Area contains several Sets of Features that describe evidence-based policies, practices, and procedures necessary to support the creation of sustained, equitable and inclusive education for each and every student.
