Spotlight on Districts and Campuses

Bonham Independent School District

February 25, 2011

background
Background
  • Too many students being pulled out of classroom for reading intervention
  • A need to bridge the gap between campuses
paradigm shift
Paradigm Shift
  • Saxon Phonics (whole group)
  • Guided Reading (small group, differentiated instruction)
  • DIBELS (progress monitoring, data-driven instruction)
a need for rti
A Need For RTI
  • Use data to determine student needs
  • Empower teachers to make instructional decisions using data
  • Provide additional support to teachers if classroom instruction is not working
  • Monitor students who were not being pulled for intervention
  • Accountability
the solution an enhanced rti process
The Solution: An Enhanced RTI Process
  • Assistant Principal/ RTI Coordinator:
  • Created forms to document interventions/ instruction
  • Scheduled meetings with teachers to discuss instructional strategies and set goals
  • Set follow up meetings to discuss student progress and next steps
the solution an enhanced rti process1
The Solution: An Enhanced RTI Process
  • Classroom Teachers:
  • Implemented research based interventions
  • Monitored student progress
  • Adjusted instruction according to student’s response to intervention
the solution an enhanced rti process2
The Solution: An Enhanced RTI Process
  • Reading Intervention Team:
  • Used DIBELS data to determine what students would receive pull-out intervention
  • Provided specific, targeted interventions based on student data
  • Progress monitored students weekly
what we learned
What We Learned
  • RTI:
  • Is about instruction;
  • Supports general education school improvement goals;
  • Focuses primarily on effective instruction to enhance student growth;
  • Provides intervention immediately upon student need
what we learned1
What We Learned

At the heart of the RTI process in an effective instructional leader who ensures that all students receive high-quality, differentiated instruction that gives all students the opportunity to succeed.

what we learned2
What We Learned
  • RTI is about problem-solving.
  • Problem-solving means going beyond fulfilling procedural requirements and checklists to doing what it takes to resolve students’ learning problems.

What We Learned

Guiding Principles of RTI

  • Scientific, research-based instruction and interventions
  • Assessment of the effects of instruction
  • Responsive teaching and differentiation
  • Regular monitoring of instruction and intervention delivery

Using What We Learned by Following the Guiding Principles of RTI
  • Assess the effects of instruction (i.e., child response data based on frequent progress monitoring)
  • DIBELS progress monitoring probes; DRA

3.Responsive teaching and differentiation/ Data-based decision making (i.e., using the child response data as the basis for decision making and instructional planning)

  • RTI meetings; RTI notebooks
using what we learned by following the guiding principles of rti3
Using What We Learned by Following the Guiding Principles of RTI
  • Regular monitoring of instruction and intervention delivery
  • Observations and feedback by administrators
guiding principles of rti
Guiding Principles of RTI
  • Each principle is part of an interrelated process which should be applied to every student.
  • Instructional practices are evaluated and adjusted based on results of reliable, valid, and sensitive indicators of important student outcomes.
  • If any piece is missing, the process breaks down.
how to ensure that the process is working
How To Ensure That The Process Is Working
  • Regular monitoring and accountability through observations and checklists by an independent observer who is well-versed in best teaching practices and the 5 components of reading (i.e., administrators)
