In Cooperation With:
What do we want students to know? How do we know if they know it? What do we do if they dont know it?
What is Being Taught
A process that gives teachers information about students knowledge and skills
An action or program put in place to improve the progress of students who are struggling or who need extra challenges.
Use High-Quality, Research- Based Materials and Instruction Assess students to decide who needs extra help Make sure educators and parents work together to make decisions
It is about finding out what works for each child and doing it.
Ways of teaching that have been proven to work to help children learn specific skills. 9
What are the instructional materials being used in my childs classroom? What does the research say about the effectiveness of these materials? What things are my child expected to learn this year?
All students would learn everything we try to teach them the first time we teach it. BUT……… EVERY CHILD IS AN INDIVIDUAL
We cannot wait for a child to fail. We must take action when the child begins to struggle in school. We must also take action to advance students.
The Process or Journey is called RtI
Main course of study and instruction for ALL students MORE support for struggling students Or for students who need more challenge MOST support for students with the most need Or for students who need a more challenging curriculum 14
Response to Intervention is a way of teaching students that makes sure ALL students receive a High-Quality Education It includes steps to provide extra help to those students who struggle or need more challenges The progress that students make at each step is checked often This data (information) is used to make decisions about the next steps that need to be taken
RtI is a REGULAR EDUCATION Process
In a RtI system, the STEPS to helping all students succeed are called TIERS. Most school districts, including MPS, use a 3-STEP or 3-TIER system.
Assess students to find out what they know Pay attention to and honor students background and culture Identify Student Strengths and Weaknesses 20
The Foundation The Main Course of Study and Instruction that All Students Receive Supports MOST of the Students
Teachers use many tools to help them find out whos doing OK, who needs more help, or who needs more challenges. Universal Screener Classroom-Based Assessments State Tests Observations
The MAP test is a test taken on a computer. This test shows teachers what each student knows in the areas of Reading and Math. The test is different for each child.
Who is scoring above or below the benchmark? Why is it happening? What should be done about it? (Make a plan). Did the plan work?
Extra EXTRA Time Support Practice Opportunities to Respond Skill Building Opportunities Some Students
We MONITOR and ANALYZE DATA (or information)
The Extra Stuff Who decides what interventions are right for my child? How will I be informed? Is the teacher trained to use the interventions? How will the team decide if my child is making progress?
Few Students The MOST amount of Extra Help EXTRA Time Support Practice Opportunities to Respond Skill Building Opportunities
How can I get my questions answered? How can I support my child at home? Are there materials available that I can use with my child at home? Make sure to praise your child for any progress or general improvement in the areas of concern.
Read to your child or have them read to you every day. Play games that require your child to rhyme words, count, identify colors, add and subtract Limit TV and video games Talk to your childTalk to your child
RtI is a Regular Education Initiative Data or information from a RtI process can be used in a Special Education evaluation Students with IEPs can receive some of the same interventions as students without IEPs 32 Some Few Most
When can I meet with the team to find out how my child is doing? Is the extra support working for my child or is it time to make a special education referral? How will the data collected in the RtI process be used in the special education evaluation process?
34 Does my child have to go through RtI interventions before I can make a Special Education referral? Does my child have to go through RtI interventions before I can make a Special Education referral? RtI and SPED Referrals The answer is no, you can make an evaluation request at any time. The answer is no, you can make an evaluation request at any time.
Dont be afraid to ask questions if you dont understand something that the school is doing. Be willing to work as a partner with the school. Insist on being informed.
RtI is a process that helps ALL students learn. RtI provides steps of support for students who are struggling or are in need of more challenges. RtI is successful when parents and school staff work together. RtI cannot stop a parent from receiving a special education referral for their child.
