Response to Intervention (RTI)



Response to Intervention (RTI)
Who We Are
The Provincial Outreach Program for Early Intervention (POPEI) is a British Columbia
Ministry of Education Provincial Resource Program with an outreach focus.
Why We Are Here
POPEI’s mandate is to increase educators’ capacity to support diverse and struggling
learners in the classroom.
Who We Help
POPEI provides services to BC public school districts and Group I and II Independent
Schools. Our support delivered through series of workshops (face-to-face and online),
networking, resources and eLearning opportunities.
Our Service Delivery Model
As POPEI’s mandate is to build teacher capacity, we aim to deliver systemic,
supportive, interactive learning opportunities to help educators meet their personal,
school and/or district goals to improve.
Our model allows for face-to-face workshops to be followed up with self-paced
online modules. This permits educators to connect their learning to the students in
their schools, while giving them job-embedded opportunities for practice as well as
providing connections with other educators on the same learning
