  5. 5. This is NOT true. The entire school needs to be involved in the RTI process, not just special education.<br />RTI begins with the general education staff with input from special education as needed.<br />See: “Identification of Specific Learning Disabilities” at http://idea.ed.gov/explore/view for more information.<br />MYTH #1 RTI is only “pre-referral”; special education staff will have to sort it out<br />
  6. 6. NOT true. RTI is designed to broaden the range of academic and behavioral interventions in general education, not to prevent or deny access to needed services or support.<br />See: “Progress Monitoring” under RTI Topics at http://www.rti4success.org for more information.<br />MYTH #2 RTI delays special education referrals<br />
  7. 7. NOT true. Parents or educators may request an initial evaluation to determine if a student has a disability. RTI does not weaken that right.<br />Requests can be made at any point within the RTI process.<br />See: “Identification of Specific Learning Disabilities” at http://idea.ed.gov/explore/view for more information.<br />MYTH #3 You cannot refer a student for special education evaluation if your school or district has an RTI process.<br />
  8. 8. FALSE. Tier 3 is the most intensive level of intervention within general education. It is not special education.<br />If a student still does not make progress within this level, he/she may then be evaluated for special education.<br />See: http://www.rtinetwork.org/essential/tieredinstruction for more information. <br />MYTH #4 “Tier 3” is another name for special education.<br />
  9. 9. FALSE. Adequate time should be given to determine if the interventions are working.<br />Guidelines given by the RTI ACTION NETWORK:<br />Tier 1: Maximum of eight weeks<br />Tier 2: No longer than one grading period<br />Tier 3: There is no guideline for this tier.<br />See: National Research Center on Learning Disabilities at:<br />http://www.nrcld.org for more information <br />MYTH #5 RTI interventions should be tried for no more than six to eight weeks.<br />
  10. 10. Special education teachers need to be included in the planning, implementation, and monitoring of interventions within RTI.<br />They should not be considered an outside agency to receive students that did not make sufficient progress within the RTI process. <br />MYTH #6 RTI reduces the need for special ed teachers.<br />
