Description: There are disparities in educational achievement between Black and White students across the country. These disparities are apparent as early as preschool and persist throughout K–12 education. In Wisconsin, the achievement gap between Black and White students is larger than in all other states. To provide training on culturally responsive practices, the Wisconsin Response to Intervention Center began offering the Building Culturally Responsive Systems professional development program in 2013/14 with funding from DPI. This program trains teachers and administrators in culturally responsive practices. This study examines the uptake and implementation of the program for culturally responsive practices in Wisconsin and will provide information to education leaders and the program developers about participation in the program to inform further research and development of the program. Specifically, this study examined the characteristics of schools that participated in the program and examined the relationship between program participation and school outcomes.
