1 RESPONSE TO INSTRUCTION AND INTERVENTION (RtII) PART I: PHILOSOPHY & PROCESS MODEL PART II: DOCUMENTATION SYSTEM The School District of Philadelphia

2 Part I  Review benefits for the transition from CSAP to RtII  Understand the philosophy of RtII  Identify the key components of the RtII model  Take initial steps for building your RtII school plan Part II  Use “Interventions,” the online system in Schoolnet Learning Objectives

3 RtII Tier 3 Individual Students evaluated for Change of Placement Level 3 Small group or Individual supplemental and targeted instruction Tier 2 Individual Student Intervention plans 60 days to demonstrate progress Level 2 Small group supplemental and targeted instruction Tier 1 Small Group supplemental instruction 30 days to demonstrate progress Level 1 All students Research - based, effective instruction Progress monitoring through Curriculum Based Assessments CSAP Differences in CSAP & RtII Student Support Model

4  : Schoolnet online system for documenting individual CSAP intervention plans piloted in select schools  : Schoolnet online system for documenting group interventions plans and implementing the RtII model piloted in select schools  : District-wide implementation of RtII  ALL Grades: K-12  Phase 1 focus areas: Literacy, Behavioral Health, Attendance, Student Discipline  Documentation in the online system in Schoolnet Roll-out plan: Implementation

5  The CSAP database will no longer be in use after the school year  Beginning with the school year, Interventions, a module in Schoolnet, will replace the CSAP reporting system Roll-out plan: Online System

6  The Interventions system will document the following:  Strategic and Intensive academic intervention plans provided through RtII  Positive behavioral interventions in compliance with the State- mandated SAP (Student Assistance Process)  EIS (Early Intervening Services) mandated by Federal law  Truancy interventions in compliance with the State-mandated compulsory attendance procedures and TEP (Truancy Elimination Plan)  Intervention plans will be automatically closed out in the system on the last day of school each year Roll-out plan: Online System

7  A multi-level system of support focused on improving learning for ALL students  A data-driven model to enable early identification and strategic interventions for students at academic or behavioral risk  A shared, collaborative, data-driven decision-making process among professional educators. What Is Response to Instruction and Intervention (RtII)?

8  Level: The differing intensity of support  Core Program: Research-based curriculum and instruction  Strategies: Instructional tools used broadly across all RtII levels to support learning  Interventions:  Academic : Evidence-based programs that supplement Core Program  Behavioral/Attendance/Discipline : Evidence–based programs or best practices that address the barriers  Screening:  Academic : assessing ALL students a minimum of 3X/year to group students according to risk level  Behavioral/Attendance/Discipline: assessing ALL students on a monthly basis to group students according to risk level  Progress Monitoring: On-going assessment of students identified as at-risk to determine accuracy of screener, and to gauge student progress with selected intervention program RtII Components: Speaking a Common Language

If referrals are appropriate, provides input as to what the evaluation plan should be. If not, provides input as to next steps and a recommended course of action.  Provides consultation to the RTII Leadership, Group Plan, and Individual Plan team members on individual students who have been evaluated for special education services and found to be ineligible. RtII School Leadership Team

20 Purpose  To create dedicated time for the RtII team to analyze student data for the purpose of improving all students’ achievement. Recommended Best Practices  Frequency:  data meetings 1-2 per month  Review screener data every marking period (monthly for attendance)  Review progress monitoring data  Structure:  Dept. meetings, grade group, or other group meeting times  RtII Team present Key components of RtII: Time for collaboration

21 Outcomes  Form consensus on students identified for intervention plans  Assign team members for a specific plan  Initiate the plan online  Task completion and progress monitoring Key components of RtII: Time for collaboration

22  Screeners are assessment tools used to assess ALL students  Academic : assessing ALL students a minimum of 3X/year to group students according to risk level  Behavioral/Attendance/Discipline: assessing ALL students on an ongoing basis  To prepare for start of school year, use prior year cycle four data to group students Key components of RtII: Screeners

23 Evidence-based Screening Tools GradesMethodDistrict- mandated DRAK-3Individual Gates-McGinitie4-8Group WRAP4-8Individual DIBELSK-6Individual AIMSWEBK-12Group For other evidence-based screeners, go to

24 ATTENDANCE  Screeners used to assess ALL students monthly to group students according to risk level  To prepare for start of school year, obtain your list of court involved youth from the prior year. These students will begin the year at Level 3. Key components of RtII: Screeners

25 Behavioral Health  The screener for students who may be in need of Behavioral Health supports will be based on a Student Assistance Team model. Students will be identified using multiple data sources, including teacher and parent recommendations, and then an expert team that includes the parent will identify what interventions would be appropriate.  To prepare for start of school year, schedule interagency meetings for all students who are participating or transition into or out of a school based behavioral heath program. Key components of RtII: Screeners

26 Student Discipline  School-wide behavioral expectations – to establish a baseline and are taught at the beginning of the school year  Screener used to identify students who require targeted supports based on review of discipline data sources Key components of RtII: Screeners

27 Key components of RtII: Using IMS data for screening process Instructional Management System - IMS

28  Choose an intervention using the following criteria:  Evidence-based  Matched to student need  Available  Staff are trained to implement with fidelity  Identify evidence-based interventions:  National RTI Center Key components of RtII: Selecting Interventions

29  Time should be allotted/scheduled for interventions to be delivered to the identified students  Regular and consistent delivery of the intervention Key components of RtII: Time for Intervention Delivery

30  Progress monitoring (PM) assesses progress of students identified through the screener as “at-risk”  Determines accuracy of screener  Gauges student progress with selected intervention program  The online system requires monthly Progress Monitoring for all interventions, but may be administered more frequently.  PM data should be reviewed collaboratively 1-2 times/month; time for structured and facilitated data analysis should be built into RtII team meeting agenda  Recommended Progress Monitoring Tools:  Assessments built into evidence-based interventions  Some screeners (e.g., DIBELS)  ScholarChip (High Schools) Key Components of RtII: Progress Monitoring

31 Attendance Behavior Discipline Literacy Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 ~85% of students ~10 % of Students ~5% of Students Whole Class Small Group Small Group/Individu al Philadelphia School District RtII Model

32 RtII Model For Reading Literacy Level 3 Goal: Few students require more intensive intervention at this level Level 2 Goal: Some students require additional intervention at this level Level 1 Goal: Most students successful at this level All students are provided access to a standards based curriculum and high quality instruction Within 2 years below grade-level 2+ years below grade-level (chronically under- performing) Just at or above grade-level

33 RtII Model For Attendance Level 3 Few students at this level Level 2 Some students at this level Level 1 Most students at this level 10 or more illegal absences 3 or more unexcused and illegal absences

34 RtII Model For Behavioral Health Level 3 Few students at this level Level 2 Some students at this level Level 1 Most students at this level Students with a behavioral health diagnosis Students who struggle with exhibiting appropriate social skills

35 RtII Model For Student Discipline Level 3 Few students at this level Level 2 Some students at this level Level 1 Most students at this level Students with an EH-21 Discipline Referral Students with 3 or more suspensions

36 Where is Special Education? Level 3 Few students at this level Level 2 Some students at this level Level 1 Most students at this level Within 2 years below grade-level 2+ years below grade-level (chronically under-performing) Just at or above grade-level Analysis, interpretation and application of data from Level 3 interventions; referral for special education evaluation should be considered if data demonstrate continued lack of response to instruction and intervention. More intensive supplemental interventions, implemented with fidelity Very frequent progress monitoring Homogenous grouping Alternatives to suspension and expulsion General Education All three levels are part of a comprehensive educational system. Therefore, the levels should not be viewed as categorical placements or as “gates” to special education supports and services. Consideration for special education evaluation may occur at any time

38 1.There is a process called the RtII Process. 2.The RtII process uses SchoolNet-Interventions as its data collection tool. 3.There is a process called the Special Education Process. 4.The Special Education Process uses EasyIEP and EasyTrac as its data collection tools, once a student has been identified as needing special education services. Students with IEPs

39  Now, SchoolNet-Interventions can also be used as an additional data collection tool for the Special Education Process.  It can be used in addition to, not in place of, the traditional Special Education Process data collection tools, EasyIEP and EasyTrac. Students with IEPs

40  What is one difference between CSAP and RtII that strikes you the most?  Use one word to describe how you feel about this change  Next Step – Building your RtII Plan Pause and Reflect on Change
