South Carolina's Intensive Intervention Implementation Story

The National Center on Intensive Intervention partnered with a team representing the Office of Special Education Services (OSES) at the South Carolina Department of Education, Dr. Pam Stecker from Clemson University, and Dr. Susan Thomas an educational consultant working with schools and districts in South Carolina to support data-based individualization (DBI) implementation within South Carolina. During this time, NCII worked with the team to build state capacity to support DBI and embed DBI into statewide efforts to support students with intensive needs, piloted DBI implementation with a school, built awareness through conference presentations and webinars, and held a community of practice with eight districts.
