14
Response to Intervention (RtI)
  • Basic Definition and Overview

15
Multi-Tier Model
16
What Does RtI Look Like?
  • Tier 1 Core curriculum meets the needs of 80
    or more of the students
  • Tier 2 20 of the students may be identified as
    at-risk and require supplemental
    instruction/intervention in addition to the core
    curriculum
  • Tier 3 5 of those students may be identified
    as needing more intensive, small group or
    individual interventions to supplement the core
    curriculum
  • Percentages will vary by district/school

17
Tier 1 Core Instruction
  • All Students Receive
  • District curriculum that is scientifically,
    research-based and aligned to Illinois Learning
    Standards
  • Curriculum-based measures and assessments for
    screening, diagnostic and continuous progress
    monitoring
  • Differentiated instruction designed to meet the
    broad range of their needs

18
Tier 2 Intervention
  • Some Students Receive
  • Individualized Intervention Plan
  • Core curriculum in the large group
  • Supplemental interventions in the small group
    inside the general education classroom or outside
    of the general education classroom
  • Interventions targeted to remediate a specific
    skill
  • Interventions implemented with integrity (e.g.,
    number of minutes/day and per week, materials
    used, progress monitoring and implementer) tied
    to an individualized intervention plan

19
Tier 3 Intervention
  • Very Few Students Receive
  • Individualized Intervention Plan
  • Integrated instruction from all three tiers to
    strengthen the accumulated impact of the
    interventions and instruction
  • Interventions delivered to very small groups of
    2-3 students or individual students
  • Interventions focused on narrowly defined skill
    areas identified from the results of frequent
    progress monitoring
  • Interventions implemented with integrity (e.g.,
    number of minutes/day and per week, materials
    used, progress monitoring and implementer) tied
    to an individualized intervention plan

20
The Link Between RtI, Problem-Solving and SLD
  • RtI is the problem-solving method for identifying
    a students strengths and weaknesses both
    academically and behaviorally
  • RtI matches instructional resources to
    educational needs
  • RtI provides the historical data needed to
    determine what the school needs to do to ensure a
    students success in the general education
    curriculum

21
Building Level Intervention Team Problem-Solving
Actions
  • Promote collaboration in the decision-making
    process
  • Analyze building and classroom level data
  • Collaboratively develop individual intervention
    plans for struggling learners
  • Assist teachers in selecting research-based
    interventions
  • Support teachers in implementing interventions
    with integrity

  • RtI Final Thoughts. . .

52
RtI Questions for Administrators
  • Who is leading the RtI initiative in your
    district?
  • Who is on the problem-solving teams in your
    buildings?
  • How are students placed into tiers and how often
    is that placement adjusted?

53
RtI Questions for Administrators
  • What do parents know about RtI, who in your
    district is telling them what they know and how
    involved are parents in writing your district
    plan?
  • Do your district RtI efforts focus on Tier 1 (80
    of students), Tier 2 (15 of students) or Tier 3
    (5 of students)?
  • How many resources are being spent on
    professional development, assessments and
    materials?

54
And the most important question
  • Who is responsible for overseeing that your work
    in RtI aligns to your work in district and school
    academic improvement planning?
