SAM & RtI
  • Schoolwide Application Model (SAM) is an RtI logic model that integrates SWPBS at three tiers along with academics.
  • With RtI, support can move to the students rather than student moving to support.
  • RtI interventions need to occur in general education environment so can capitalize in incidental benefits.
