Square Up to RTI2
"The greatest way to show that you love kids is to set high expectations."
~Dr. Steve Perry
- We will begin using spring norms on March 15th
- Spring universal screening window is set for May 1-18
- The student plan in Aspen is the official record of intervention. Notes gathered in other formats (ex: Google sheet/doc) should also be transferred into the meeting notes in Aspen.
- Be sure to document in the meeting notes when a student is identified as exhibiting characteristics of dyslexia including which areas are being addressing in instruction and intervention.
- When students enter a tier 2 or 3 intervention they need to be enrolled in the course through Aspen. School secretaries can assist with this process. Conversely, they need to be withdrawn from the course when they exit intervention.
- When a student is no longer receiving intervention through the RTI2 process, do not forget to fill in the End Date on the Student Plan, change the Status from Active to Previous, and then click Save.

Regional Training on Understanding Dyslexia Opportunity
This training is for all school staff interested in learning more about the "Say Dyslexia" Law and the requirements from the state. We will discuss difficulties these students face, how we provide strategies and align interventions to meet their needs. Participants will leave with a better understanding of how to help their students and how to talk to parents about their child's difficulties in reading. Certified staff may register on MyLearning Plan and Classified staff may register through their professional development website.
All sessions will be 3:45-4:45
