After several years of working with the new Response to Intervention (RTI) approach to assisting struggling learners, the district undertook efforts this summer to revise our RTI academic procedures. The goal was to simplify procedures and provide more practical guidance to common problems and questions faced by school Problem-Solving Teams. One mark of success is evident in the fact that the manual was reduced in size from 59 pages in the previous version to only 15 pages. Each year, a new RTI Assessment and Resource Guide will be published that will specify the assessments and resources that will be supported by the district for that academic year. Because assessments and resources often change from one year to the next, this approach should reduce the number of times that the manual itself will have to be updated. We hope that these resources will be useful to teachers and leaders in planning and delivering progressive intervention strategies to assist our struggling learners.
