Response to Intervention

Fillmore is shifting services to a Response to Intervention (RTI) model for all students

§    to better accommodate in the individual needs of all students,

§    to be in compliance with state and federal guidelines, and

§    to align with recommended best practice.

 

§    RTI is a methodology that encompasses:

o       Curriculum-based assessments of academic progress

o       Quality/ Researched-based interventions matched to student needs

o       Frequent progress monitoring data collection

o       Frequent review of progress monitoring data to inform educational decisions

§    RTI follows the following core assumptions:

o       that the educational system can effectively teach all children

o       that early intervention is critical to preventing problems from getting out of control

o       that the implementation of a multi-tiered service delivery model is necessary

o       that a problem solving model should be used to make decisions between tiers

o       that research based interventions should be implemented to the extent possible

o       that progress monitoring must be implemented to inform instruction

o       that data should drive decision making.

3 tiers
 
 

Tier 1

§    Research based instruction

o       Change in instructional program (ex. grouping, content, whole class changes, small group instruction, centers)

§         Refer to CAST for problem solving process (implement, test, and document interventions 8-10 weeks)

·        Review progress

 

Tier 2

§    Refer for AIS services (after documented interventions have been implemented with little or no success)

o       Utilize CAST process to identify additional changes/ interventions

o       Progress monitor student achievement (all areas)

o       Implement, test, and document interventions 8-10 weeks

o       Intervention must target deficits identified by data (not homework help)

 

Tier 3

§    Refer to special education

o       Identify any disabilities

o       Implement interventions, services to accommodate specific disabilities

§         Provide special education services

§         Provide curriculum accommodations (shortened assignments, curriculum adjustments, etc)

§         Progress monitor, review accommodations, make necessary adjustments

·        Refer for additional support (possibly self-contained room)
 
Attached is the Fillmore Central School RTI Plan. Because the services, programs, and instructional techniques are always being improved and adapted to meet the needs of specific students, the plan represents potential programs and services to address the Academic Intervention Needs of students at Fillmore.
 
 
  • Students scoring below the mean score on the previous year's 3-8 ELA or Math assessment will be provided academic intervention services.
  • Students scoring below a Level 3 on the previous year's 3-8 ELA or Math assessment, but a above the mean score will be monitored for the need for academic intervention services.
  • Students may also be provided AIS services based on classroom performance and teacher recommendation.
