Understanding response to intervention rti

Understanding Response to Intervention(RtI) :

What it Is

& How it Works

in Midway ISD


Our focus today

Our Focus Today

  • Introduce RTI Concepts

  • Share Midway ISD’s general education

    procedures for helping struggling learners

  • Progress Monitoring

    * The examples in this power point target academic concerns, and a similar set of procedures are in place for behavior interventions and speech issues.


Do you have a student that you are concerned about

Do You Have A Student That You Are Concerned About?


Here s johnny

Here’s Johnny!

Current Grade Placement= 5th Current Reading Level= 3rd


Johnny is struggling

Johnny is Struggling…

  • Can Johnny’s problem be within-

    • Learning Disability

      OR

  • Can Johnny’s problem be with instruction-

    • The instruction was not delivered in a way that he understood

    • Changing schools created learning gaps


The catch 22 of sped

The “Catch 22” of SPED

  • Students are historically 2 years behind “ability” to be eligible

  • No services until criteria are met

  • TWO years is TOO far behind!

    Catching up can take a lifetime!


Enter rti

Enter… RtI

With RTI we immediately ask…

  • How did Johnny get behind?

  • Did this happen gradually?

    Whatcan be done for him?

    Howcan we help him improve?


How does rti help you know if johnny s learning problem is instruction or disability

How Does RtI Help You Know if Johnny’s Learning Problem is Instruction or Disability?

  • You monitor progress of ALL students

    • All subgroups should be responding

  • A few students will not respond

    • No curriculum works for every student

  • Come in with Tier 2 for those in need

  • Logic of RTI: If Tier 1 is working for most, if Tier 2 is effective for most of the rest, then…

    Those who do not respond may have a “problem” that is not due to instruction.


Midway s 4 tier model

Midway’s 4 Tier Model

Designed by the Midway ISD RtI Committee, made up of Counselors, Instructional Specialists, Principals, OCIS

  • Instruction at 4 levels of intensity

  • Students get the level they need

  • Intensity of services increase as student is

    nonresponsive to intervention

Tier 1 universal interventions

Tier 1: Universal Interventions

The teacher will:

  • Collect data (Universal screening, TAKS, TPRI, classroom progress, etc.)

  • Implement interventions and begin progress monitoring for at least 2 weeks

  • Meet with grade level/department team for initial intervention discussion

  • Implement interventions and collect data for 4-6 weeks

  • Contact the parent(s) to share concerns and interventions


If johnny doesn t improve

If Johnny Doesn’t Improve…

  • The teacher will meet with the Intervention Team to determine further interventions at Tier 1 or Tier 2

  • The Intervention Team is made up of:

    • Teacher

    • Instructional Specialist

    • Other members may include the principal and/or counselor


Tier 2 selected interventions

Tier 2: Selected Interventions

The teacher will:

  • Implement interventions and collect bi-monthly data for 4-6 weeks

  • Tier 1 & Tier 2 teachers will meet to discuss student data and share lesson plans every 2 weeks

  • Reconvene the Intervention Team to analyze progress and decide where student should be placed: Tier 1, 2,

    or 3


Interventions at tier 2

Interventions at Tier 2

  • Supplemental Instruction

    • Good solid instruction

    • Covers all the bases

    • Essential components of Reading / Math

  • Progress Monitoring is continued

  • Progress evaluated frequently

  • Response to instruction assessed


If johnny still doesn t improve

If Johnny Still Doesn’t Improve…

  • The teacher will meet with the Student Assistance Team (SAT) to determine Johnny’s placement and needed interventions in Tiers 2 or 3

  • The Student Assistance Team is made up of:

    • Teacher

    • Instructional Specialist

    • Counselor

    • Administrator

    • Other educators as needed

    • Parent participation is invited and encouraged

Tier 4 special education

Tier 4: Special Education

The Interventionists will:

  • Refer Johnny for SPED
