Step 4: Implement the Plan


Implementation will ultimately determine the success of an intervention. Therefore, LEAs, and schools should engage students and families to carry out the plan to implement the promising solutions, making real‐time adjustments including processes that must be in place to monitor the quality of supports being provided, assess the degree of fidelity of implementation, determine how barriers and solutions will be identified, and build the capacity of others to facilitate the implementation in the future for sustainability of the intervention.


Student Engagement is a general term used to describe an individuals’ interest and enthusiasm for school, which impacts their academic performance and behavior. Therefore, “student engagement” is best understood as a relationship between the student and the school community, the adults at school, the student’s peers, and the instruction and the curriculum.

Parent and family engagement is one of the most important contributors to school completion and success. When families are involved students achieve more, regardless of socioeconomic status, ethnic/racial background, or the parents’ education level.

The resources provided will assist LEAs and schools with ensuring that strong strategies are in place to: 1) build capacity to engage parents/stakeholders in an effective partnership with the school; and 2) share and support high student academic achievement.

    Fidelity of implementation refers to the degree to which the program is implemented as intended by program developer, including the quality of implementation. Furthermore, fidelity refers to the consistency or integrity of implementation and fidelity checks should create open communication and productive feedback by providing intervention or practice implementers with opportunities to learn and collaborate.
