Title: Response to Intervention in Illinois


1
Response to Intervention in Illinois
  • November 22, 2008
  • Presented by
  • Beth Hanselman and Marica Cullen
  • Illinois State Board of Education

2
  • As of January 1, 2009, all school districts will
    be required to have a district RtI plan.
  • This presentation is intended to assist school
    districts to fully understand the background and
    guiding principles of the state plan and provide
    a basic understanding of district plan writing
    requirements.

3
Defining Response to Intervention (RtI)
4
Response to Instruction RtI
  • Approach for redesigning and establishing
    teaching and learning environments that are
    effective, efficient, relevant and durable for
    all students, families and educators
  • NOT a program, curriculum, strategy, intervention
  • NOT limited to special education
  • NOT new

5
Essential Components
  • Response to Intervention (RtI) consists of Three
    Essential Components
  • High quality, research-based instruction/
    intervention matched to student needs
  • Frequent use of data to determine learning rate
    and student performance level
  • Educational decisions based upon the students
    response to instruction/intervention

6
Quality Education for All Students
  • In an RtI Model educators will
  • Use assessments for screening, diagnostics and
    progress monitoring
  • Use data from those assessments to inform
    instructional decisions
  • Use a multi-tier model of instruction to respond
    to student needs
  • Collaborate among teachers, school support
    personnel, administrators and parents

7
Quality Education for All Students
  • In an RtI Model educators will
  • Use scientific, research-based instructional
    interventions when data show students are not
    successful
  • Intervene early rather than adopt a wait to
    fail approach to education
  • Effectively teach all children

RtI is the Foundation of Instructional
Improvement

  • The Illinois Model

11
Multi-Tier Model
12
Defining the Tiers
  • 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

13
Legislation, Rules and State Plans
14
Why RtI Planning is Required
  • By the 2020-2011 school year, documentation of
    the RtI process shall be a part of the evaluation
    process for students when a specific learning
    disability (SLD) is suspected. After
    implementing an RtI process, a district may use a
    severe discrepancy between intellectual ability
    and achievement as part of the evaluation process
    for determining whether a child has a specific
    learning disability.
  • It is important to note that RtI within a
    three-tier intervention model is also a part of
    special education eligibility decision-making
    required by 34 CFR 300.309 and 23 IAC 226.130.
  • Reiterates the parent request for an evaluation
    already in Section 226.110 … does not imply that
    it would prevent or abbreviate the use of RtI.

15
IDEA Regulations - October 2006
  • The State
  • must not require the use of a severe discrepancy
    between intellectual ability and achievement for
    determining whether a child has a specific
    learning disability
  • must permit the use of a process based on the
    childs response to scientific, research-based
    intervention

16
IDEA Regulations - October 2006
  • The Team
  • must document how the child responds to
    scientific, research-based interventions
  • must document that the child does not achieve
    adequately or make sufficient progress in
    state-approved grade-level standards
  • must consider data that demonstrates appropriate
    instruction delivered by qualified personnel and
    documentation of repeated assessments of
    achievement at reasonable intervals

17
Illinois Part 226.130 Rule (SLD Eligibility)
  • Requires
  • Use of a process that determines how the child
    responds to scientific, research-based
    interventions as part of the evaluation procedure
    described in 34 CFR 300.309
  • Development and distribution of a State RtI Plan
    by January 1, 2008 by the State Superintendent in
    collaboration with professional organizations
    outlining the professional development that is
    necessary and other activities and resources that
    are essential for implementation

18
Illinois Part 226.130 Rule
  • Requires
  • Illinois districts to complete a plan for
    transition to the use of a process that
    determines how the child responds to scientific,
    research-based intervention as part of the
    evaluation procedure by January 1, 2009
  • Illinois districts to implement RtI as part of
    their evaluation procedure for making SLD
    determinations by the 2010-2011 academic year

19
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.

20
Illinois Part 226.130 Rule
  • Important
  • Illinois Rule 226.130 does not prevent the parent
    request for an evaluation already in Rule 226.110
