During the past decade, teachers in over 1,500 schools in Canada have been trained to implement the empirically validated Fourth R program, but the sustainability of the program post-training is unknown. For this study, 197 teachers in 26 districts in 6 provinces were surveyed to determine the extent to which they were using the program 2 years or more after training, what modifications they make, and perceived barriers to implementation and sustainability. Results indicated high satisfaction with the program, strong implementation fidelity, and the importance of training, support, and accountability in improving implementation. Training, implementation, and monitoring implications are highlighted. (Author abstract)
