RtI Overview

  1. 1. RtI: An Overview for Educators District 112 RtI Design Team & Steering Committee
  2. 2. What is Response to Intervention? <ul><li>A focus on results: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>RtI is a framework for enhancing instruction for all students through the use of district, local, and state assessment data to provide instructional support for all students. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. What is Response to Intervention? <ul><li>A focus on collaboration: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Teacher teams collaboratively planning instruction for groups of students based on their needs. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. What is Response to Intervention? <ul><li>A Focus on learning: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Adjusting instruction and providing increasing levels of support to students when they are not learning. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. What is Response to Intervention? <ul><li>A required procedural element for the identification of students with learning disabilities. </li></ul>
  6. 6. RtI is a Central Part of District 112’s Strategic Plan Strategy #2 <ul><li>“ We will ensure our educators have the support necessary to utilize effective instructional strategies and interventions to inspire each student to grow to academic excellence.” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plan 1: Educate staff on the purpose, basic components, and essential procedures of Response to Intervention. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plan 2: Establish a system to effectively and consistently implement RtI across all schools. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. What Does RtI mean? <ul><li>RtI systems are based upon levels of support called “Tiers.” The t i ers build upon one other; each providing a more intensive level of support. </li></ul>
  8. 8. What does Tier 1 look like? <ul><li>Tier 1 is . . . </li></ul><ul><li>High quality General Education CORE instruction. </li></ul><ul><li>For ALL students. </li></ul><ul><li>At least 85% of students meet learning targets with just Tier 1 instruction. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Tier 1: A Focus on Learning “CORE INSTRUCTION” <ul><li>Research-Based Instruction </li></ul><ul><li>Frequent Data Collection </li></ul><ul><li>Well-Managed Classrooms </li></ul><ul><li>Coordinated Across the Grade/Department Level </li></ul><ul><li>Instructional Block Times </li></ul><ul><li>Differentiated and highly engaging instruction </li></ul>
  10. 10. Tier 1: A Focus on Results <ul><li>Universal Screenings </li></ul><ul><ul><li>MAP grades 3-8 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>AIMSWeb grades K-8 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Local Assessments </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Frequent common formative assessments to inform instruction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Benchmark Assessments </li></ul></ul>How do we know students are learning?
  11. 11. Tier 1: A focus on collaboration <ul><li>Grade Level Groupings </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Student groups by skill level across grade level. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assessment-based. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Student group with highest needs is usually the smallest. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Differentiation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Small groups in class. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategic homework assignments/extra practice. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Preteaching and reteaching. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Simple, go-to interventions. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Tier 1: A Focus on Collaboration <ul><li>Critical questions before moving to Tier 2: </li></ul><ul><li>Has this student’s core curriculum been implemented with fidelity ? </li></ul><ul><li>Does the data indicate that this student is discrepant from his/her peers (universal screening and classroom assessments)? </li></ul><ul><li>What differentiation and interventions have occurred at Tier One that have been unsuccessful? </li></ul>
  13. 13. Tier 2: How do we respond when students do not learn? <ul><li>Tier 2 is additional , supplemental interventions for students who need more support than is available through Tier 1 with adjustments. </li></ul><ul><li>The CORE plus MORE! </li></ul><ul><li>About 10% of students may need Tier 1 and 2 to be successful. </li></ul>Occurs in addition to Core. Lasts 8-12 weeks per cycle. Small groups. Systematic instructional programs. Frequent progress monitoring.
  14. 14. Tier 2: Structures to Support Learning <ul><li>Planned small groups/systems level support through: </li></ul><ul><li>Intervention Blocks in Elementary Schools </li></ul><ul><li>Extension Blocks/Academic Enrichment in Middle Schools. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Tier 1 and Tier 2: A Focus on Collaboration <ul><li>Questions before moving to Tier 3: </li></ul><ul><li>Has this student’s core curriculum and Tier 2 interventions been implemented with fidelity ? </li></ul><ul><li>Does the data indicate that this student is significantly discrepant from his/her peers? </li></ul><ul><li>Does the student continue to learn more slowly than expected despite Tier 2 interventions that have been closely monitored and adjusted ? </li></ul>
  16. 16. Tier 3: How do we respond when students do not learn? <ul><li>Tier 3 includes intensive interventions. The teaching team implements intensive small-group or one-to-one interventions to meet the needs of students who need more support than they are receiving through Tier 1 and Tier 2 together. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Summing up, RtI includes: <ul><li>High quality, research-based instructional and behavior supports in General Education. </li></ul><ul><li>Teacher team collaboration to provide flexible, differentiated instruction to all students. </li></ul><ul><li>School-wide screening to determine which students need closer monitoring or additional interventions. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple tiers of increasingly intense, research-based interventions matched to the needs of student(s). </li></ul><ul><li>Use of collaborative problem solving to develop, implement, and monitor interventions. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Summing up, RtI includes: <ul><li>Continuous monitoring of student progress to determine if instruction/interventions are effective in meeting the needs of student(s). </li></ul><ul><li>Follow-up to ensure that the instruction/interventions were implemented as planned. </li></ul><ul><li>Active parent involvement throughout the process of pursuing solutions that lead to increased success. </li></ul><ul><li>The RtI process can be used to help determine if a child has a disability while supporting his/her academic and behavior progress. </li></ul>
