Caddo Parish SBLC Procedures: RtI and Referral Teams

2015-2016

Acknowledgements This manual was developed through a collaborative effort to produce a step-by-step guide for school personnel to implement Response to Intervention (RtI). In the spring of 2014, Keith Burton, Chief Academic Officer, welcomed Billy Snow and a group of over one hundred educators to initiate this process. Various directors, principals, supervisors, coordinators, counselors, and pupil appraisal personnel gathered to review current RtI practices and recommend changes to develop a new RtI framework for the district. The importance of quality instructional support for ALL students was the goal. Under the leadership of Billy Snow, District Transformation and Innovation Officer, and Erin Harp, Director of Accountability and Instructional Support, a smaller group of professionals were selected from the original group to form the RtI Committee. Gratitude is expressed to the RtI Committee for remaining focused on the recommendations of the original group in designing, composing and editing this final project. The inspiration, support, and guidance of all educators who either directly or indirectly have been instrumental in making this project a success is also greatly appreciated.

Response to Intervention (RtI) Both the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB 2001) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA 2004) focus on the quality of instruction that students receive in the general education setting. NCLB and IDEA require the use of research-based instruction and interventions. Response to Intervention (RtI) is the practice of meeting the academic and behavioral needs of all students through a problem-solving process with three key elements:  High-quality instruction and research-based tiered interventions aligned with individual student need  Frequent monitoring of student progress to enable results-based academic and/or behavioral decisions  Use of student response data in making important educational decisions (such as those regarding placement, interventions, curriculum, and instructional goals and methodologies) Using data-based interventions and interventions based on scientific research to determine eligibility for learning disabilities is stressed in IDEA 2004. With an RtI approach, general education teachers assume increased responsibility for delivering high-quality instruction to early-indentified struggling students.

504 Referrals and 504 Students 1. A 504 referral can occur at any point in the RtI process for students with medical impairments that substantially limit a major life activity/bodily function. 2. A 504 or Dyslexia referral can occur at any point in the RtI process. The RtI team may decide how long interventions are conducted based on student needs before a referral is made. When a referral is warranted the SBLC/Referral team should be notified and appropriate documentation, including school based data must support the need for a referral. A student identified as a 504 or dyslexic student is not automatically a Tier 3 student. 3. A student who is eligible for 504 may or may not require accommodations on his/her IAP.

Services for Exceptional Children The most intensive tier of instruction is for students identified as eligible for special education. Students at this level receive specially designed instruction as determined by the IEP committee.

Instructional Services for Students with Dyslexia Per Bulletin 1903, students identified as having “Characteristics of Dyslexia” MUST receive the required 150 minutes of multisensory instruction in the whole class setting referred to as Tier 1 or any combination of instruction in Tiers 1, 2, and/or 3.

Response to Intervention (RtI) Team: It is the responsibility of the RtI team to review and analyze student progress as depicted in universal screening assessments, district benchmarks, and formative assessments each 9 week period. The team members will identify students who need to be discussed at each team meeting. Once the students are identified, team members will assist the classroom teacher with developing a goal for each student as well as developing instructional strategies that will enable students to reach the established goal. Referral Team: The referral team will conduct meetings after students receive Tier 3 instruction. The parent of the student will be notified and will be invited to attend the meeting. The meeting is designed to provide information about the student’s areas of deficit and the instructional strategies that are being implemented by teachers and/or interventionists that address the areas of concern. Furthermore, appropriate screeners will be analyzed to determine if the student needs additional services based on the documented outcomes of the screeners. Additionally, at the end of each team meeting, the following decisions may be made:       

Conduct no further action at this time Continue current tier of intervention and progress monitoring through the RtI process Move students to the next tier of intervention and progress monitor through the RtI process Refer the student to the appropriate committee to conduct a section 504 Evaluation Refer to Pupil Appraisal (PA) for support services (PA Representative must be present) Refer to Pupil Appraisal for an individual evaluation (PA Representative must be present) Consideration of grade retention/Promotion with retention

Exceptions for Referrals may include the following: Any student may be discussed at SBLC/Referral team meeting if he or she meets the following criteria:  Enrolled in an educational program operated by the Caddo Public School District (CPSD) including those who are receiving homebound services (or)  Enrolled in a private school, or public or private preschool or daycare program within the geographical jurisdiction of CPSD Schools should identify and discuss the following students at SBLC meetings when needs are not being met in the general education program including:  Students who excel in academics and/or the arts  Students with severe social, emotional, and/or behavioral difficulties whose needs cannot be met by the PBIS Committee or services provided by the School Counselor  Students who have communication difficulties  Students with severe gross or fine motor difficulties  Students with medical conditions which are documented by a current written medical diagnosis (within the last 12 months). The condition must significantly impact educational performance.  Students who may have severe or low incidence impairments (consult with Pupil Appraisal staff for possible immediate referral). Low incidence impairments are defined as: Intellectual Disability (Moderate or Severe)

Visual Impairment

Traumatic Brain Injury

Severe Orthopedic Impairments

Multiple Disabilities

Autism Spectrum Disorder (Severe)

Hearing Impairment

Deaf-Blindness

Other serious medical condition(s)

Parental Notification and Participation Participation by parents is crucial in all referral team meetings in which decisions are being made regarding their child. The SBLC 1 (meeting notification) invites parents to participate in the SBLC Referral Team meeting and should be sent prior to each meeting thereafter. If a parent requests an SBLC referral team meeting, the team should convene and discuss the concerns in a timely manner; within 10 business days is best practice. If a referral is made by school personnel, efforts should be made to give the parent “reasonable” notice. Every effort should be made to accommodate parental participation in SBLC referral team meetings. A meeting may be conducted without a parent present, if all reasonable efforts have been made to notify the parent that they should attend. The SBLC referral team should keep a record of all attempts to arrange a mutually convenient time. If a meeting is conducted without a parent, the SBLC referral team chair should send home a copy of the SBLC Determination (SBLC 3). Parents may invite other participants or advocates to attend a SBLC referral team meeting with them. If this occurs, complete a consent form to allow the individual to participate in the meeting. This consent is in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). According to Louisiana’s Bulletin 1508: “Parents must be provided a report or summary by the SBLC on the status of the student’s response to scientifically research-based interventions… including [progress monitoring] at reasonable intervals. This report or summary must be provided to parents at least once each grading period until a decision is reached.” The interventions status letter will be mailed out at the end of every nine week decision point.

Assessment Overview Universal Screeners/Progress Monitoring ELA/Reading – DIBELS Next (K-3) AIMSweb(4-8) Classworks Summative Benchmark (6-8) Beginning, Middle, and End of the Year Writing – AIMSWEB (This is NOT to be used as a Student Learning Target) (2-8) Math – AIMSWEB (K-8) or Classworks Summative Benchmark (6-8) -Beginning, Middle, and End of the Year         

Universal screeners are assessments administered to all students to determine as early as possible which students are at risk of not meeting academic goals. Universal screeners are norm referenced measures of automaticity or fluency in the short term memory. Universal screeners are not diagnostic in nature or standards based. No accommodation or modifications are allowed for universal screening. Progress monitoring is a brief assessment to determine if students are making adequate progress.. Progress monitoring is measuring rate of improvement. If a student’s IEPs allows him/her to have accommodations during testing, they are to be provided for all progress monitoring assessments. NOTE: universal screening tools do not place a student in a tier. These tools help us place students in intervention groups and not in a specific tier. It is the responsibility of the classroom teacher to administer, score and analyze the data for the classes they teach. Teachers must have enough information to know how best to use their instructional time or which students need specific instructional interventions.

Diagnostic Assessments:   

Diagnostic assessments are designed to provide the teacher with an understanding of the prior knowledge and skills, as well as the strengths and specific learning needs of their students. Diagnostic assessments are generally conducted before instruction is given or changed. Diagnostic assessments used in Caddo are MobyMax and Classworks.

Formative Assessments:  

Formative assessments provide ongoing feedback to improve learning and occur during the learning process. Formative assessments are a planned process that can involve many different activities. Examples of Formative assessments used in Caddo are: o Informal teacher questions/observations o Conversation with student o Working portfolio o Journal writing o Anecdotal records o Exit tickets o Unit assessment questions used during the unit to guide instruction o Curriculum Based Measurements (CBMs), short cycle assessments

Summative Assessments   

Summative assessments occur when teachers evaluate a final product. Summative assessments are the last opportunity for students to demonstrate standards after a specified learning period. Examples of Summative assessments are: o State assessments o Mid-term and Finals o District benchmarks (Interim Assessments) o Unit assessments when used at the end of a unit/s o hort cycle assessments/CBM’s/Quizzes o

Universal Screeners The Universal screening assessments are the f i r s t indicator in identifying students who are at risk for learning difficulties. Its main purpose is to evaluate academic skills and identify students whose performance is not consistent with that of their peers. Universal screening assessments are administered to all students three times per year, at the beginning (BOY), middle (MOY), and end (EOY). The campus RtI team is responsible for overseeing the universal screening process. Universal assessments in Caddo will be conducted on every student in grades K-8. Careful documentation of screening results is important for accurate identification of students’ needs. o If the results of universal screening assessments suggest that an individual student is performing a t o r below the 25%tile, interventions should be designed for each student based on their individual strengths and weaknesses. o These students will move through the tiers as determined by the RTI team at the end of the nine week quarterly period. o These students will be continuously monitored through progress monitoring. o The goal of district-approved interventions is to fill in foundational skill gaps to help prevent students from failing to meet academic expectations. o Confidentiality must be safeguarded, although district-approved screening records should be accessible to teachers and staff who work with the student.

Goal of Progress Monitoring (PM):

 Estimate Rates of student Improvement (ROI)  Identify students who are not demonstrating adequate progress  Compare the efficacy of different forms of instruction and design more effective, individualized instructional programs for struggling learners o PM is a brief assessment; usually 1-3 minutes for reading and 5-8 minutes for math to determine if students are making adequate progress (automaticity). Think… QUICK and SIMPLE !! o PM data should be collected, analyzed and used on an ongoing basis; data must be charted. o PM assessments should be given at evenly spaced intervals (at least once every 3 weeks) for a reasonable amount of time. (typically 9 weeks, but allowances are made based on specific instructional programs). Best practices would include weekly fluency checks on the weeks where AIMSweb, DIBELS, and Classworks materials are not being used to progress monitor. The current curriculum can also provide these assessments. Universal screening assessments and Tier 1 progress monitoring occur at the student’s grade level. When students are moved into Tier 2 or Tier 3 progress monitoring will be conducted one grade level above the student’s instructional level. To determine instructional level, administer the progress monitoring tool moving down by grade level until the student scores at approximately the 50th percentile. Our diagnostic tools can also provide information on a student’s instructional level. Schools may assess student progress periodically on grade level and/or adjust the instructional level as goals are being met. Determining Student’s Baseline:  Reading: Before the first RtI meeting, administer 3 one-minute reading fluency probes in one sitting. Determine the median score and use it as your baseline when setting the student’s goal.  Math: Before the first RtI meeting, administer 2 math probes during two different sittings and average the scores. Use this average as the student’s baseline.

Fidelity of Implementation in Progress Monitoring o Consistency of test administration  Progress monitors must be given according to directions outlined in the guide. o General education  Do not alter the test in any way.  Do not use manipulatives for any grade level. o Special Education and 504  Follow the prescribed IEP or IAP including all accommodations and modifications.

CADDO’S RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION PYRAMID

504 INFORMATION A 504 or Dyslexia referral can occur at any point in the RtI process. The RtI team may decide how long interventions are conducted based on student needs before a referral is made. When a referral is warranted the SBLC/Referral team should be notified and appropriate documentation, including school based data must support the need for a referral. A student identified as a 504 or dyslexic student is not automatically a Tier3 student.

Services for Exceptional Children: Special Education IEP-Specialized Instructions Tier 1-3 interventions with progress monitoring according to the IEP

Tier 3: Minimum 120 minutes weekly above Core Instruction 3-6:1 grouping with targeted, scaffoldeld interventions Progress monitoring should be continuous and entered once every 3 weeks Decision point for Tier placement is after 9 weeks Tier 3 instruction should ideally be conducted by an interventionist

Tier 2: Minimum 90 minutes weekly above the Core Instruction Minimum 9 weeks 6:1 grouping with targeted, scaffolded interventions Progress monitoring should be at one grade level above the student’s instructional level, be frequent and entered once every 3 weeks Decision point for Tier placement is after 9 weeks Tier 2 instruction should be conducted by the classroom teacher or interventionist

CORE Instruction Progress Monitoring and Small Groups are working ON Grade Level

Tier 1 – Intervention(s) are provided to: Students who score at or below the 25 %tile on Universal Screeners, District Benchmarks, Formative Assessments, Anecdotal Records, Teacher Observation, etc. Students who have no progress monitoring data must first be provided with opportunities for small group instruction with the teacher before placed into more intensive Tiers

RtI/Referral Manual

2015-2016

TIER DEFINITIONS Tier 1: Tier 1 is the foundation of the RtI instructional model. In this tier, all students receive high-quality, research-based instruction in the general education setting. Teachers deliver high-quality core class instruction that is aligned with state standards. Teachers will differentiate instruction in grade-level classes for 9 weeks and will monitor the progress of all students via documentation of universal screening and individual student results on state assessments, curriculum-based assessments, district benchmark assessments, daily assignments, and teacher-made assessments.

What critical areas need to be addressed in Tier 1? Short Answer: Classroom Instruction Long Answer: The Individuals with Disabilities Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) and the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) advocate the use of interventions and instruction based on scientific research. Both acts require effective reading and mathematics instruction that results in improved student performance and a reduction in the number of students needing special education services. Essential components for reading are phonemic awareness, phonics instruction, fluency, vocabulary development, reading comprehension, and those for mathematics are mathematics calculation and problem solving.

Tier 1: Characteristics of powerful Tier 1 instruction include: - A focus on relationship building and establishment of risk-free environment - Well-designed lessons using research-based models of lesson design – includes a 90-120 minute block comprising fluency, working with words, guided reading, objective lesson and performance tasks, writing, and self-selected reading, inquiry based models, gradual release model, compass learning, Kagan, benchmark testing, as well as project or problem-based learning. - Highly engaging lessons that motivate and engage all students - Rigorous lessons at various cognitive levels (differentiation) - Lesson delivery in a variety of instructional formats. There should be a balance of effective direct instruction in whole groups and small groups featuring station teaching, learning stations, and independent practice. - Use of a variety of perceptual modes and learning styles to reach all students - Connecting learning to real life - Lessons that move from concrete to representational to abstract transfer - Various methods of grouping to meet needs - Technology is used in ways that engage students and leads them to research to produce their own products - Opportunities to show mastery and engagement in instruction through small group purposeful talk - Multiple quick formative assessments are used throughout lessons - Data from quick formative assessments, multiple forms of classroom data such as anecdotal records curriculum-based measures, and district benchmarks, etc. are used to guide instruction

Tier 2: (90 minutes weekly above the CORE for a minimum of 9 weeks) The RtI campus team may increase support to Tier 2 for students who are not making progress at Tier 1. Students are identified for individualized small-group instruction delivered by teachers and/or interventionists, in addition to Tier 1 instruction. This intensified level of intervention includes research-based programs, strategies, and procedures designed to supplement and enhance Tier 1 activities. Tier 2 interventions are typically provided by the classroom teacher and are data-driven.

Tier 3: (120 minutes weekly above the CORE instruction) Students who have not responded adequately to interventions in Tiers 1 and 2 and are performing significantly below grade level will move to Tier 3 and receive intensive, comprehensive intervention in addition to their grade-level instruction.Tier 3 intervention is designed to be 9 weeks.

This includes all students unless otherwise specified in their IEP’s. No accommodations or modifications are allowed for universal screening except for those students with sensory impairments( i.e. enlarged print for visual impairments  

Principal/RtI Instructional chairperson meets with teachers in grade/department levels to conduct a DEEP DIVE analysis of the Universal Screeners/Assessments. A cutoff score of the 25th percentile is used as an indicator of academic risk. Campus RtI team meets with teachers regarding curriculum and instructional practice.

Tier 1

Universal Screening DECISION POINT

Student at or below the 25th percentile

Student is above the 25th percentile

Students are designated Tier 1 students when they are at or below the 25th percentile on the universal screener Progress monitoring is continuous throughout good classroom teaching. However, once every 3 weeks, formal progress monitoring data is entered within our monitoring systems. Progress monitoring occurs on grade level at this point. Students determined to be at Tier 1 must be entered into Jcampus. A parent intervention status letter must be sent home.

Continue working with the student in the general education classroom using the CORE instruction(whole group or small group).

After EVERY 3 week progress monitoring point, teachers with instructional leaders review (have a “Check-Up”) of student progress based on the data collected. All documentation, including progress monitoring data, will be presented at the QUARTERLY RtI meeting for consideration of changes to the Tier placement.

Tier 1 is at grade level.

9 Week (Quarterly) RTI DECISION POINT Meeting: Review all student data Student’s data shows lack of sufficient progress The student is placed at the Tier 2 level. All changes in interventions and progress monitoring must be documented in JCampus. A parent intervention status letter must be sent home.

PARENT-INITIATED REQUEST FLOWCHART If a parent/legal guardian makes a verbal/written request to a school district’s administrative employee for a full and individual evaluation of a student, the district shall, not later than the 10th school day of receipt of request: 1) Provide an opportunity for the parent or legal guardian to give written consent for evaluation; or 2) Refuse to provide the evaluation and provide the parent or legal guardian with notice of procedural safeguards under 20 U.S.C. Section 1415 (b)/Louisiana Educational Rights of Children with Disabilities

Refer to the following procedures for a parent initiated request for an evaluation: The school contacts the parent to verify receipt of request and to get request in writing and immediately notifies the Director of Exceptional Children, and/or the Pupil Appraisal (PA) coordinator and/or SLP. A SPEECH referral is a referral to SPECIAL ED and follows all the same processes. Note date request received on the written request.

FOR ALL WRITTEN REQUESTS RtI representative MUST schedule an EXPEDITED RtI meeting within 5 days of written request- The RtI team will meet to review ALL current DATA and determine - is there evidence of a possible disability? (include Pupil Appraisal (PA) coordinator)

An analysis of the presenting data will include a review of the parent(s) written concerns; the RtI file; student files including grades, progress reports, teacher information, and any previous evaluations. If ESL, LPAC referral procedures must be followed.

IF NO, prior to the 10th school day, the Director of Special Education will complete a Prior Written Notice of Decision to refuse the evaluation to be given to the parent along with a copy of the Procedural Safeguards.

IF YES, follow the RtI Initial Assessment Guidelines for completion. Intervention at the Tier Levels (1, 2 & 3) may be minimal; however ALL RtI referral forms must be complete.

Continue the RtI process and collection of RtI data as appropriate.

Prior to the 10th school day, Prior Written Notice/ Notice of Decision to evaluate and Consent will be obtained by the appropriate assessment personnel (PA staff/SLP). Federal and state initial evaluation timelines will apply.

Parent may access resolution options. RtI documentation is REQUIRED! In order to ensure that underachievement in a child is not due to lack of appropriate instruction in reading or math, data-based documentation from the RtI interventions must be considered. 34 Code of Fed Reg § 300.309

Here’s the RtI Scoop Concerning Screeners, Student Groups, and Tiers Tier placement reflects the amount of time a student has spent in the RtI process. The instructional intensity and grouping of the classroom interventions are determined by the data. Remember that what TIER a student is in does not dictate which intervention group they are placed in. Students should be placed in intervention groups based on the “intensity” of intervention needed. Example: you may have a TIER 1 student in the most intensive intervention group with a TIER 2 or 3 student because the TIER 1 student is a newly identified struggling student and the testing data indicates that he needs intensive interventions (below 10 %tile). The other students may be at a different point of the TIERED process but the level of intervention needed for all the students are the same.

EVERYONE in Tier 1 receives CORE instruction and interventions whether it is accelerated or scaffolded. Example of Core time: Teach the lesson, do guided and independent practice, re-

teach to the ones who need it. Use RTI time to do targeted, scaffolded instruction to fill in gaps.

The RtI committee will use universal screeners and/or other data to determine a student’s placement in the RtI process. This placement is fluid based on student data. Students may move in and out Tiers.

Every 9 weeks the determination of Tier placement is documented in JCAMPUS.

RTI and Communication Concerns According to Louisiana Bulletin 1508, if a student’s communication skills are “at-risk,” evidencebased interventions shall be implemented if he or she is enrolled in grades K or above and for those ages three to five when appropriate. Areas of concern related to communication are articulation, fluency, voice quality, and language (receptive and/or expressive).

Tier 1: Teacher Consultation/Education The SLP can consult and/or collaborate with school-based staff regarding students who are not demonstrating adequate progress with Tier I instruction, due to possible communication difficulties. Further staff training regarding communication deficits may also be provided by the SLP during grade level meetings and/or faculty meetings. SLP may also provide teacher with recommendations regarding classroom based communication strategies. Tier 2: Communication Skills Teacher Checklist 1.

When a concern about communication skills arises, the teacher should contact the RtI Chairperson.

2.

The RtI Chairperson will provide the teacher with the Communication Skills Teacher Checklist (CSTC).

3.

Teacher completes CSTC. The teacher must indicate the date the communication concern was discussed with the parent(s). If concerns are noted on the CSTC, the SLP should be provided with the CSTC for reference.

4.

SLP may also participate and/or collaborate with the RtI team re: Tier 2 academic interventions.

5.

The general education teacher may also provide small group support to students who demonstrate weaknesses in communication skills, in conjunction with Tier 2 academic interventions. The SLP may provide ideas for instruction, materials, and advice on creating activities to provide the appropriate Tier 2 interventions to these students.

Tier 3: Screening & Possible Direct Intervention Support 1.

The screening process is initiated; the Caddo Communication Screening will be completed by the SLP to determine if direct communication intervention support is necessary.

2. Following the screening, the SLP will discuss results with the RtI team. If the student PASSES the communication screening, the SLP may provide further recommendations to the teacher. If the student DOES NOT PASS the communication screener, direct communication interventions will be recommended in the area(s) of concern (articulation, voice, fluency, and/or language). An SLP-1 form will need to be sent home to acquire permission from the parent for the SLP to provide interventions. Once permission is received, communication interventions will be initiated.

RtI/Referral Manual

22

2015-2016

3. The SLP initiates interventions to work with small groups of students with communication concerns. Progress monitoring will be completed once every three weeks. 4. At the end of the 9 week intervention period, a 1508 referral can be made to the SBLC committee for communication concerns, if no other concerns are present.

FAQs (Frequently asked Questions re: RtI and Communication Concerns)  Does a student who is suspected of having communication deficits have to go through the RtI process? Yes. A student with suspected communication deficits must be provided with interventions prior to the completion of the 1508 evaluation.  Is there any way in which RtI for Communication deficits is different from the process for other handicapping conditions? The time period at each tier may be shorter for communication interventions. IF communication is the student’s ONLY area of need then a 1508 evaluation may be expedited.  What are the circumstances in which a referral for a 1508 evaluation can be expedited? If the student demonstrates SEVERE articulation, voice, or fluency deficits, he/she may be referred for an evaluation immediately unless there are academic concerns as well. Such conditions would include articulation so poor that the child is unintelligible, unusual quality of voice, or stuttering. This option should be reserved for only the most significantly impaired students. The decision to refer for evaluation should be presented by the SLP at an SBLC meeting.  Why can’t an evaluation for a student with language concerns be expedited? In most cases, students with language concerns are also demonstrating academic concerns. Due to the extent that language and academic intertwine, these concerns usually coexist. Language interventions are curriculum based and should be provided in concert with academic interventions.

OVERVIEW for Conducting a DEEP DIVE after Universal Screening/Assessment Purpose: To look closer at the DATA from the universal screener/assessments in order to assist in creating RTI groups based on intensity of need DIBELS: 1. Locate the 25%tile based on the National Percentiles for DIBELS 2. Record the composite score in the subtitle BOX ========================= 3. Using the composite score list ALL students who fall at the 25%tile and below – record their score ========================= 4. Circle all student scores who fall at the 10th%tile and below: MOST INTENSIVE –Group 3 5. Highlight in green the students who fall from the 25%-21%tile: Bubble Kids – Group 1 6. Those that remain fall within the 11-20%tile: INTENSIVE – Group 2 AIMSWEB: 1. Locate the score at the 25%tile (based on national percentiles or use our cheat sheet)and record in the subtitle BOX 2. List ALL students who fall at the 25%tile and below – record their score 3. **If students names are already listed – DO NOT list again – Just record score **If their name is not listed – Then add ============================= Follow steps 4-6 from above

QUICK SNAP-SHOT INCLUDING INTERVENTION(S) AND MONITORING

The following plan becomes a working document that will be referred to throughout the 9 weeks 

The Core time: Teach the lesson, do guided and independent practice, re-teach to the ones who need it. Use intervention time to do targeted, scaffolded instruction to fill in gaps.



Some students may begin the school year in TIER 2 or 3 based on previous year’s data and documentation. However, changes to interventions must be documented as well as the grade level at which a student is progress monitored (please refer to the RTI manual-It is your guide)



Students should not change TIERS until the end of the 9 weeks; however, moving from one intervention group to another may be done based on student need and documentation. Example 1: A student may start in the INTENSIVE Group (Group 2), but after a few weeks the teacher may determine that the student needs to be with the MOST INTENSIVE group (Group 3) based on data (formal/informal assessments, progress monitoring, grades, etc.). This movement of intervention DOES NOT EQUAL moving from “Tier 2” to “Tier 3.” Example 2: You may temporarily place a Tier 1 student in the MOST INTENSIVE intervention group (Group 3), because new data has indicated a significant skill gap. However, the other students in group 3 may be at a different point of the TIERED process. Example 3: A student has been newly identified as struggling (Tier 1) based on data and would benefit from the instruction being given to the most intensive intervention group. After collecting and reviewing progress monitoring, the student may move to the less intensive or the bubble group based on the student’s progress.



Every three weeks the grade level team, with instructional leader, must review student graphs for progress monitoring, review the diagnostic individual learning path, record data and make any adjustments
