It is critically important that RtI documentation becomes part of the Student's Record.
- One hard copy needs to be placed in the confidential File at the end of the year or when a student leaves the district.
- The buildilng routing form in each building must include the RtI Documention and who will be responsible for including it.
Why Response to Intervention?
We will ensure that each student learns and grows as an individual learner and we respond to each learner without waiting for failure or creating a label.
High Quality Instruction:
· There is a clear coherent standards-based curricular progression.
· Instruction is differentiated to meet the needs of students.
· Instruction is personalized/individualized to meet the needs of students.
· Instruction is provided by highly qualified teachers.
· Ongoing professional development takes place to support and enhance Tier I instruction.
· Universal assessments are used three times per year to determine needs and growth.
· Common Formative and Summative assessments are based upon the standards-based curricular progression that provide data on student standard and skill mastery.
· Progress monitoring for students receiving interventions takes place frequently to determine if progress is being made.
· Everyone works together to promote collaboration.
· Resources to meet the needs of all students are shared regardless of title or role.
Multi Level of Support:
· Student assessment data is used to inform instruction and intervention needs.
· All individuals providing interventions meet to share knowledge and expertise.
· Building teams respond to learner needs not to what’s available.
· Everyone is held accountable to use data to inform decisions.
Culturally Responsive Practices
· SIOP Strategies are routinely used.
· Individuals examine their own cultural backgrounds as well as become knowledgeable about the backgrounds of their students
· Everyone recognizes the diversity of each learner as a strength
· Embrace the importance of building relationships
· High Quality Instruction in the Universal Curriculum
· Universal Assessments are given three times a year – strive for consistency
· Family Involvement – at a minimum they are informed, better to have them as part of the team
· Universal Form(s) must be completed for students in Tier II and Tier III
· A building designated person ensures forms are completed and maintained for students in Tier II and III
· The same criteria is used for SLD regardless of building or program
· Regular meetings are held to facilitate communication and standardization of practices (staff working with teachers on interventions)
· Access to interventions are equitable regardless of label (i.e., just because a student is ELL and receives ELL assistance does not make them ineligible for other interventions, or a special education student who is not LD due to reading they should be able to receive reading interventions)
