  • Update Google Docs
  • Minimum team requirements are:
ISTEP scores previous year (if applicable)

  • What other data will help us identify intervention needs of our students?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the current assessment tools that we have?
  • What other ways can we collect formative data to monitor our students?
  • What needs (assessment tools) do we still have?

Title 1 and RTI coordination of services

We will be presenting more in depth information at a staff meeting to update how we are coordinating these services. Please be patient as we work out the kinks. The object is to identify ALL students in need of additional academic support and assign them to the appropriate support services using Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions. Our interventionists are classroom teachers, instructional aides, our title 1 staff, RTI interventionists as well as special education staff. I am including an informational link to review the RTI process. More to come....................
