CW-FIT Expands to Rural Communitities

The CW-FIT Rural Expansion initiative marks a significant stride in educational innovation, particularly in rural communities. Funded through the Education Innovation Research (EIR), this project focuses on evaluating and extending the implementation of CW-FIT in K-8 schools across the country. Spearheaded by the University of Kansas in collaboration with rural partners, the endeavor aims to introduce the evidence-based CW-FIT intervention to underserved rural schools across 7 states: Kansas, California, Montana, Minnesota, New York, Tennessee, and Texas. The project includes the development of a CWFIT Micro-credentialing program within a Rural Coaching Model. This model will empower Rural Coaches, trained by CW-FIT Regional Trainers, to subsequently train teachers in the effective utilization of CW-FIT during English Language Arts (ELA) instruction. Through this comprehensive approach, CW-FIT is set to make a lasting impact on education in rural communities nationwide.
