This week you will spend 3+ hours reviewing these websites and resource materials. You are going to create 'A Five Question List' of real questions you have about Response to Intervention, Special Education Referral and the Special Education process. Post your list. You will then respond to any 2 questions either from the same person or two different people. To respond to the question you may need to do research to find the answer (online or ask around). Make sure you are explicit as to which question you are answering (include the question in your answer) and provide links to where you found the content.
Essential Components of RTI: Response to intervention integrates assessment and intervention within a multi‐level prevention system to maximize student achievement and reduce behavior problems. With RTI, schools use data to identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence‐based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student’s responsiveness, and identify students with learning disabilities or other disabilities. The four essential components of an RTI framework are screening, progress monitoring, multi-level or multi-tier prevention system, and data-based decision making.
Conditions for School Effectiveness:
- Effective school support and intervention.
- Effective school leadership.
- Aligned curriculum.
- Effective instruction.
- Student assessment.
- Principal’s staffing authority.
- Professional development and structures for collaboration.
- Tiered instruction and adequate learning time.
- Students’ social, emotional, and health needs.
