Response to Intervention

A few weeks ago, I swung my car into the parking lot of Circle K to grab an iced tea after seeing the AMAZING Pat Quinn’s RTI conference. I soon realized that I was getting strange looks from the people in the Circle K.  I discretely checked my zipper and felt my hair for a wild rebel curl.
Once I got back in my car, I realized I still had my “Response to Intervention” name tag.  Do you suppose they thought I was fresh out of rehab from a Dr. Drew-sort-of-intervention? 
Any hoo…
I have been working with a team of FANTASTIC educators to help develop our elementary schools’ RTI policy and procedures.  We have historically used the discrepancy model , but we realize this is not meeting the needs of our students.

Collaboratively we created this process:
(I checked with our Team Chair and she said I could share this with you all)


Response to Intervention 15
GLT = Grade Level Team; TST= Teacher Support Team

Response to Intervention 16
Teacher identifies no more than 3 areas of concern to focus on.

Response to Intervention 17
Grade Level Team helps decide on 1 area of need to focus on and helps select an intervention.  Fidelity checks are scheduled (peers supporting peers).

Response to Intervention 18
Teacher begins intervention and data collection.

Response to Intervention 19
3 fidelity checks are scheduled/documented over a 4-6 week period.



Response to Intervention 20
If progress is not made the student is brought to the building level Teacher Support Team (TST)

Response to Intervention 21
Teacher completes a worksheet in preparation for the TST meeting.

Our goals were to keep the forms teacher friendly, the process teacher supported, and the interventions effective and well documented.

  1. I think the work that you have done at your school is fantastic. We are just beginning this work in our district and hope we can have something as great as what you have got!

  2. Thanks for sharing Dee Dee! I will be attending a conference on this some time next fall in Jefferson City. These will be very useful!

  3. Thanks for sharing the resources! Our district is beginning to implement RTI and SST (Student Support Team). I'm going to look over them, and maybe share them with the team at my school.

  4. Isn't Pat Quinn amazing? I have seen him speak several times and he always has the audience laughing and crying no matter what the topic! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Vanessa,

    I know~I wanted to ship him off to our building! It was one of those conferences that just FLEW by!

  6. Hi Mrs. Blanton! We have made a few modifications to the forms I have posted here (I must repost some)…

    We are rolling RTI out to the staff in September and October. I will keep my fingers crossed.

  7. I would love to be able to read these closely and create a similar for our ECSEP. Is it possible for you to send me a copy of them. Thank You!

  8. Since these were created in 2011, and you have utilized them since then, what have you found to be the most challenging aspects? What has worked well? What have you revisited and changed/updated?
