The fundamental goal for any educational practice (and supporting system) is the development of students who are competent in academics and social skills. It is the interaction that takes place between teacher and students within the classroom that should be the main focus on implementation structures at levels from school, district, and state. Ultimately, the most important question is "Does the program make a difference for students over time and across settings"?
MiBLSi is in the on-going process of creating a sustainable and scalable statewide system of support. The figure below describes this system at each level of implementation.

Framework for Addressing Practice and Supports
The figure below displays the importance placed on practices and supporting structures. As the structures move further away from direct student instruction, less emphasis is placed on the idiosyncratic aspects of the educational practice and more emphasis is placed on the infrastructure to support the implementation of the practice. The implementation drivers are integrated into the supporting infrastructure to ensure fidelity of implementation that is sustainable.
