The VDOE started developing Instructional Consultation Teams (ICT) in 1999 and continues to expand the initiative throughout the school systems in Virginia. Instructional Consultation Teams (ICT) is a model of service delivery that provides academic and behavioral support to students struggling in the classroom. It is based upon the premise that quality instruction that is matched to a student’s assessed entry skills, will increase student success and reduce behavioral problems (ICAT Resources, 2010). A complete description of IC model is available at http://www.icatresources.com/icteams/index.cfm
Schools participating in the VDOE’s ICT initiative receive comprehensive professional development from their regional VDOE Training and Technical Assistance Center (T/TAC). The professional development includes a series of trainings (e.g., ICT overview, session trainings on reading, math, writing and behavior), technical support sessions and monthly on-site consultations.
