4 National Center on Response to Intervention Things to Remember  An RTI process cannot be used to delay-deny an evaluation for eligibility under IDEA.  Students with disabilities must be identified in a “timely manner.”  Long-term secondary prevention cannot be used as an alternative for providing services without an Individualized Education Program (IEP) to a student with a disability. 4

What are the roles and responsibilities of special education staff? When should students be referred for eligibility consideration? 10
