    Kovaleski earned his doctorate in school psychology from the Pennsylvania State University. He began his professional career as a school psychologist and preschool coordinator with the Carbon-Lehigh (Pa.) Intermediate Unit. He subsequently worked as director of Special Services in the South Plainfield (N.J.) Public Schools, supervisor of Clinical Services with the Lancaster-Lebanon (Pa.) Intermediate Unit, and director of Pupil Services with the Cornwall-Lebanon (PA) School District. From 1990 to 1997, he served as director of the Instructional Support Team Project for the Instructional Support System of Pennsylvania. In that role, he supervised the implementation of ISTs in over 1,700 schools in Pennsylvania. In 2005, Kovaleski was named as a coprincipal investigator for the Pennsylvania Response to Instruction and Intervention Project, which initiated multitier service delivery systems throughout the state. He continues to consult with the Pennsylvania RTII Project through the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network.

    Kovaleski has consulted with school districts and departments of education throughout the United States. His professional interests include systemwide efforts for school restructuring, the application of student assessment to classroom instruction, and implementing response-to-intervention assessment programs in the context of whole-school reform.
