Why RTI in the First Place?
MTSS (Multi-Tier System of Supports) = RTI2
RTI at a Glance
Implementation Factors that Drive
Success
• Amount of initial professional learning support provided to
teachers and staff;
• Level of “ongoing” instructional coaching support provided to
teachers and staff;
• Fidelity and adaptability with which the intervention is provided;
• Differentiation in intensity of support targeted to the needs of
students;
• Frequency and validity of progress monitoring to know when to
adjust supports; and
• Number of competing initiatives that diffuse time, resources, and
support.

Efficient Teaming / Collaboration
Follow the Disney principles:
➔ Overmanage, do not micromanage
◆
shared ownership = shared responsibility
➔Common sense is not always common practice
◆ “Unarticulated expectations are premeditated
disappointments.” - W. Disney
➔ Adapt, don’t adopt
◆
Incorporate effective practices into existing structures
Sample Agenda
1. View data collected from Screener.
2. Identify Skill Deficit Concerns. (Tier I)
3. Identify Skill Deficit Concerns for Tier II & III.
(Rule out false positives and negatives)
4. Determine level of service. (Tier II & III)
5. Determine intervention strategy. (When, what, who, how often)
6. Document tier placement and fill out parent notification forms.
(Keep copies for Student RTI folder)
7. Adjust settings in EPS based on team decisions.
8. Use Case History Management page to document any changes in intervention, Tier,
or misc. information that is relevant to student progress.
9. Place related documents in Student RTI folder and teacher keeps in classroom.

Identify 3 Math and 3 Reading Trends.
What Does Your Data Look Like?
• What areas of deficit are shown?
• How many students fall within Tier II (11th-25th
percentile)?
• How many students fall within Tier III (<1st – 10th
percentile)?
• What is the capacity of your building, based on
schedule and personnel?
• How will groups need to be modified to fit
capacity?
• Are there any issues with Tier I instruction?

Understanding the Background
The following slides will discuss the what,
why, how and how well of progress
monitoring. Although Path Driver
Reading/Math has a progress monitoring
graphic component built into the product, it is
important to understand why it is needed -and gives you an appreciation for the work of
the district team when evaluating options.
Progress Monitoring – Why?
Purpose
– Helps us to build more effective instructional
programs
– Data-based method of tracking student growth
Estimates ROI and amount of time needed to
close the gap
– Ensures that intervention is helping student reach
goal
Is student profiting from his/her instructional
program, including the CORE curriculum?
Progress Monitoring - What?
What?
–
Monitored in the area of deficit using an instrument sensitive
to change (*Academy of Reading/Math)
–
–
–
Area of deficit: basic reading, reading fluency, reading
comprehension, math calculation, math reasoning, written
expression. If deficit in oral expression or listening
comprehension, consult Speech Language Pathologist.
May need to administer survey level assessment to
determine accurate skill deficit; consult SPED/Psychologist
(*see next slide)
Examples include CBM, computer-based assessments and
assessments from intervention materials/kits
Path Driver - Reading
Progress Monitoring – What continued
• All PM measures must include the following:
– National percentiles (%iles) – different than
percentages (%)
– Allow for repeated measures
– Sensitive to change
– Specific to area of deficit (*why LL does not work)
– Must give information so that ROI can be
transferred to graph form
Path Driver meets all of these criteria
Progress Monitoring
How and How Well?
• How?
– Administration of probes that are parallel to those
used in the universal screening (Path Driver)
– Administered at skill/instructional level
• How Well?
– Determines Rate of Improvement (ROI = growth)
Progress Monitoring – Who and How
Often?
• Who?
– Highly trained personnel
• the person delivering the intervention typically administers
PM probe, as the results help to drive intervention choice,
intensity, frequency, etc.
– Data will be analyzed by the team
• How Often?
– Must occur at least EOW
– Depends on skill assessed and expected ROI
• Basic skills (decoding/fluency) improve more rapidly than
advanced skills (comprehension, problem-solving)
A brief reminder of the process
PROGRESS MONITORING WITHIN
PATH DRIVER
Standardize the Process Customize the Implementation
Progress Monitoring and Data-Based
Decisions
• Intervention and PM should be related to area of
need
– If high error rates exist in fluency and phonics, intervene in
phonics before addressing fluency
• Goal Setting (1.5, 2 or custom growth rate?)
– You must be knowledgeable of instructional level in order
to set accurate ROI
• EPS is working on providing ROI and information for gap analysis
within the system for psychologists
No need to panic, your psychologist has this covered!
RATE OF IMPROVEMENT

Don’t Panic!

1st student – will take 40 weeks to meet goal
2nd gr student – will take 60 weeks to meet
goal
HS student – will take 1200 weeks to meet

Rate of Improvement
In order to be effective, the Student’s
ROI must be greater than the ROI of a
typical student in order to close the gap
and return to grade level functioning.

Data Points - Another Wait to Fail
Model?
Although data points are associated with
intervention effectiveness and tier movement,
this is not another wait to fail model. We are
providing increasingly intensive intervention
throughout the process to determine areas of
need earlier (prevention) and intervene more
effectively (intervention).
Data Points and Intervention Changes
If PM every week, need minimum of 10-15 data
points
If PM every other week (EOW), need minimum of 810 data points
However, just because you have 10 data points,
does not mean the student must move tiers;
movement/changes are dependent on what the
data tells us
– more time needed?
Immediate movement from Tier I to Tier III
EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULE
Standardize the Process Customize the Implementation
Immediate Tier III Placement
• Students performing significantly below grade level may need to
be placed directly in Tier III intervention; however, they must still
receive the total amount of time for intervention required in Tier II
in addition to the time required in Tier III. Ex: 10 weeks in Tier II
+ 10 weeks in Tier III.
– If directly in Tier III, still need to meet criteria of Tier II
intervention time
– Provided same amount of time to respond as student who first received
Tier II interventions
– Students must be given adequate time to respond to prescribed
intervention before a referral is made. (min. 20 weeks)
– Purpose is to increase intensity of intervention, not to shorten
the duration of the intervention period.
– Students placed directly in Tier III demonstrate a higher level of
need and may require several rounds of Tier III intervention
before results yield desired effects.

How to handle ELL students through the universal screening and
intervention process
ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS
Standardize the Process Customize the Implementation
Adapted from State by Cheryl Roby
ELL and Tier I Instruction
• Should participate in Tier I ELA and Math
Instruction focusing on CCSS
• Scaffolding and differentiation should be in
place with collaboration from ELL teachers
• ELL services will enrich CCSS and incorporate
World-Class Instructional Design and
Assessment (WIDA)
Adapted from State by Cheryl Roby
ELL and Universal Screening
• All students participate in universal screening
process for math; If Level 1 or 2, they do not
participate in universal screening for reading
• If scores fall below the 25th %ile:
– ELDA 1 or 2 / TELPA 1 or 2
receive 60
minutes of ELL services, but not tiered
intervention
– ELDA 3 or 4 / TELPA 1
receive 30 minutes of
ELL services and tiered interventions
• Services can be push-in / co-teaching or pull-out
• May require more time in interventions
Adapted from State by Cheryl Roby
ELL and Universal Screening
• When discussing movement in or out of a
tier, an ELL teacher must be present in the
RTI2 data meeting

How it all fits together
RTI, SPECIAL EDUCATION, S-TEAM
AND 504
Standardize the Process Customize the Implementation
RTI Tiers and SPED
SPED is a level of service, not a place.
Students identified as requiring intervention
outside of the tiers (i.e., SPED) will receive that
intervention for a particular skill deficit, as per
their IEP.
However, students may also participate in
intervention within the tiers.
SPED example: Tier + SPED
• Amy is identified as having a Specific Learning
Disability in Basic Reading Skills. She also
struggles with math calculation, but did not
meet identification criteria in that area. How
may Amy’s needs be served?
Ideas?
1.
2.
3.
AMY
Amy will receive core instruction in reading and
math through the 90 minute blocks in Tier I.
To address her skill deficit in math calculation,
she will participate in Tier II/III intervention
during intervention block
To address her skill deficit in basic reading skills
(area of SLD), she will participate in reading
intervention through SPED during intervention
Out With the Old, In With the New
Old Way (Then)- Discrepancy
• Student is identified as SLD;
specific area of deficit not
mentioned on ER
• Once student identified as
SPED, any/all services
provided as deemed
necessary by IEP team
• Amy receives SPED services
in reading (basic, fluency
and comprehension) and
math calculation.
New Way (Now) - RTI
• Student is identified as SLD in
specific areas of deficit; not as
an overall category
• Services must be provided
based on data (both within
and outside of SPED), proof of
LRE must be demonstrated
• Amy receives basic reading
skills intervention through
SPED, but math calculation
through the tiers, based on
data from universal screening.
RTI and Support Team
Middle / High Schools
No changes; All referrals go through S-Team.
Elementary
Students referred for categories other than SLD go
through S-Team. ex: OHI, ED
Students suspected of SLD will be in the tiers for
intervention and grade-level collaboration/data
teams will make referral decisions
S-Team Example
Teacher reports Amy is easily distracted, has a
difficult time remaining in her area, often blurts
out answers and has issues initiating and
completing tasks. She has poor grades across
the board.
How do we handle Amy’s referral?
Amy
Amy goes through S-Team based on suspicion of
OHI (AD/HD)
The 504 and S-Teams should work together on
Amy’s case (support in place while S-Team
process is ongoing; evidence of LRE)
Amy receives intervention through the tiers
throughout this time, if supported by data from
universal screening
RTI and 504
● 504 procedures have not changed
● 504 Laws have not changed
● If a student has an impairment that
substantially limits them as compared
to their non-impaired peers, then they
qualify for 504.
● RTI should make determining eligibility
easier.
● If a student is in intervention, and they
have a medical diagnosis, then they
most likely will qualify for a 504 plan.
