Culturally-Responsive Tiered Fidelity Inventory (CR-TFI)
School Climate Teams use the Culturally-Responsive Tiered Fidelity Inventory (CR-TFI) to assess current PBIS implementation, prioritize school needs and create school climate action plans. School teams complete the TFI with an MTSS TOSA at least annually and use the related action plan to guide their work throughout the year.
The culturally responsive PBIS practices and restorative elements are reflected in red italics in the CR-TFI.
