Square Up to RTI2

Aspen RTI2 Student Plan Management
Tier 2 addresses the needs of struggling and advanced students. It is recommended that the majority of the intervention is through direct instruction and that intentional teaching strategies are used to pinpoint specific skill gaps for students. For those doing a computer program, students should still have daily interaction with a teacher who can hold them accountable and further assist students in closing the gap.
Tier 3 interventions are more intensive than Tier 2. Students at this level should receive daily, intensive, small group, or individualized intervention targeting specific area(s) of deficit. The most effective way to do this is through direct instruction. For those doing a computer program, students should still have daily interaction with a teacher who can hold them accountable and further assist students in closing the gap.
When students are not showing progress in an intervention, we must dig deeper to determine why. The change should directly affect the area that is an obstacle for the student to responding positively in closing their skill gaps.
Listed below are intervention menus for reading and mathematics.
The RTI2 parent flyer provides an overview of support for students through the RTI2 process. This flyer can be shared with teachers and parents who may have questions about the intervention process. You can access the flyer here: Parent Flyer

Universal Screening Percentile Ranking Sheet
A useful tool for analyzing student results is through the Universal Screening Percentile Ranking sheet. This one page document provides a visual of where students fall between the 1st and 99th percentiles. It can provide guidance in tier 1 and help with creating small groups. The sheet can be found here.
