1. Response to Intervention Funding Issues

2. The Question Is… Can RTI be an allowable part of a federally funded program? NOT Can federal funds pay for RTI?

3. Federal Programs Which Might Fit with RTI Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) Title I, Part A—Disadvantaged 21st Century Learning ELL Programs Title II, Part A—Professional Development Title III—English Language Learners Other

4. Purpose of IDEA and CEIS IDEA Provide free appropriate public education to students with disabilities CEIS Coordinated services for students in K-12 (emphasis on grades K-3) not currently identified as needing special education or related services but who need additional academic and behavioral support to succeed in general education. May use up to 15% of district grant Voluntary unless disproportionality

5. Possible Uses of IDEA Funds in RTI Professional development to enable personnel to deliver “scientifically based” academic and behavioral interventions Provide educational and behavioral evaluations, services, and supports including scientifically based literacy programs

6. IDEA Cautions Once a student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) he/she is not eligible for EIS An IEP may include RTI services but IDEA cannot be used for services all students receive (such as the universal screener) but may be used for additional specialized services for the individual child Using RTI for child find may be supplanting

7. Purpose of Title I, Part A

8. Can RTI be Part of a Title I, Part A Program? Two types of Title I, Part A programs Schoolwide—Consolidates federal, state, and local funds to upgrade the entire educational program Targeted Assistance—Title I, Part A services provided only for eligible students

9. Title I, Part A Schoolwide Schools Combine federal, state, and local funds to upgrade the entire educational program of the school RTI assumes general education has been combined Caveats Cannot combine most state programs Cannot combine Reading First Migrant--Title I, Part C and Indian Ed—Title VII are difficult to combine

10. Title I, Part A Schoolwide Schools Goal—ensure all children meet standards, particularly those at greatest academic risk Requirements to use the schoolwide model School has poverty of 40% or more Schoolwide plan with all ten components

11. Title I, Part A Schoolwide Schools Rank order not required but extra services for academically at-risk must be shown Exempt from program requirements Some requirements, health, safety, parent, still apply Intents and purposes must be met RTI could be part of meeting the intents and purposes If coordinated with RTI this must be addressed in the schoolwide plan

12. Title I, Part A Schoolwide Schools OIG Monitoring Clearly describe how school will implement each of the ten required components Describe how resources (funding) will be used to implement the plan List funds/programs combined, amounts and how intents and purposes will be met Describe how school will provide individual academic assessment results and interpretations in language parents can understand

13. Title I, Part A Schoolwide Schools Schoolwide plan developed over one-year period Parents, community members, teachers, principals and administrators involved in plan development Plan is available to parents and the public in an understandable format Consider Reading First, Early Reading First, Even Start, Perkins and Head Start when developing

14. Title I, Part A Targeted Assistance Schools Targeted services only for eligible students Must identify eligible students Students failing or most at risk of failing to meet state’s student achievement standards, including migrant, neglected and delinquent, homeless, and early childhood (head start, even start, early reading first). Eligibility is not based on poverty.

15. Title I, Part A Targeted Assistance Schools Must identify eligible students (con’t) Multiple, educationally related, objective criteria used to rank order students Preschool—grade 2, use teacher judgment of teacher, interviews with parents, and other developmentally appropriate means Title I, Part A funds cannot be used to identify eligible students—this is general education Title I, Part A cannot be used for RTI universal screener

16. Title I, Part A Targeted Assistance Schools How can RTI fit in to a Targeted Assistance Program? Incorporate into existing planning Effective methods and instructional strategies based on scientifically based research Extended learning time Accelerated, high quality curriculum Minimize removal from classroom during regular hours Coordinate with regular ed program and other programs Professional development Parental involvement

17. Scientifically Based Research RTI must use scientifically based research for instructional or other methodologies paid by Federal funds Cannot accept vendor’s word Not required to perform own research ED refers to “What Works Clearinghouse” but does not endorse

18. Supplement Not Supplant Applies to most federal programs Supplant=displacing 3 presumptions of supplanting Use federal funds to provide services the district is required to make available under other federal, state or local laws Use federal funds to provide services the district provided with state or local funds in the prior year Use federal funds to provide the same services to Title I, Part A or migrant students provided to other students with state or local funds

19. Supplement Not Supplant IDEA EIS must supplement any ESEA EIS services [34 CFR 226(e)] No supplement not supplant requirement for state or local funds [34 CFR 226(e)] Flow through rules Normal non-supplant applies Caution—IDEA non-supplant includes federal

20. Supplement Not Supplant ESEA Funds—includes Title I, Part A targeted assistance Refer to 3 presumptions of supplanting Schoolwide Programs (SWP) District must ensure the SWP gets all the state and local funds it would have received were it not a Title I schoolwide school See also Department of Ed Fiscal Guidance, Feb, 2008 http://www.ed.gov/programs/titleiparta/fiscalguid.doc
