It assumes that the instruction/interventions are matched to student needs and that the monitoring of progress is continuous. RTI is an early intervention framework to prevent long-term academic failure (National Professional Resources, 2014). is a systematic, research-based intervention process that is deployed when a student is underperforming in his/her classes. It is the answer to the question, What do educators do when a student is failing a class? It is a multi-step approach to providing services and interventions to students who struggle with learning at increasing levels of intensity. Results of this monitoring are used to make decisions about the need for further research based instruction and/or intervention. involves teachers, administration, and specialized staff, such as school psychologists, counselors, social workers, and reading specialists. can be described in tiers: Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3. Each tier has specific tasks and goals. (See Mundelein High School Response to Intervention Map.) increases the passing rate in academic courses, improves prosocial and academic readiness skills, and narrows the achievement gap. It also improves the matriculation to the next grade level and the graduation rate. is a safety net for our students and it deploys school resources to assist students and teachers. What is the objective/purpose of 1. To create a learning environment where all students are academically and behaviorally successful 2. To use research-based instructional strategies and student data from formative and summative assessments to guide instruction and intervention in effort to monitor student progress 3. To enact a shared responsibility of problem-solving 4. To meet the federal and state regulations that mandate implementation of RtI in Illinois Public Schools enacted Fall 2010 Illinois State Board of Education Regulations : Additional procedures for students suspected of having learning disabilities: Each district shall, no later than the beginning of the school year, implement the use of a process that determines how the child responds to scientific, research-based interventions as part of the evaluation procedure described 34 CFR Components of RtI High quality research-based instruction in the general education setting Continuous monitoring of student performance Screening for academic and behavior problems Tiers of instruction that are progressively more intense, based on the student s response to intervention Fidelity of implementation 2 Systemic sustainability Flexible, small group instruction in both skill strategies and content Collaborative problem analysis Data-based decision making with multiple sources of data 3 Members Student Data Analysis Responsibilities TIER 1 Universal Team All Educators Refer students based on classroom performance Complete e-sped after 2-3 weeks of Tier 1 interventions Establish positive relationship with the student.

These plans might include IEP, 504, behavior intervention plan/contract, alternative placement (Novanet, ROE, Omsbudman, night school) gang contracts. An intervention strategy used when behavior impedes learning a written intervention plan is developed based on the results of an analysis of why the behavior is occurring; a behavior plan provides highly individualized behavior support for a student. A complex and comprehensive plan addressing multiple life domain issues across home, school, and community (e.g. basic needs, Mental health treatment, behavior/academic interventions, as well as multiple behaviors) that is uniquely individualized to the student, and reflective of youth/family voice and choice.

Universal screening tests are typically brief; conducted with all students at grade level; and followed by additional testing or short-term progress monitoring to corroborate students risk status The Educational Planning Assessment System is a universal screening tool that includes Explore, Plan, Practice ACT and PSAE A targeted instruction that is based on student needs; interventions supplement the general curriculum and are a systematic compilation of wellresearched or evidence-based specific instructional strategies and techniques The first tier consists of universal strategies, including a high-quality core curriculum, research-based teaching strategies, school-wide screening to identify students at risk for difficulty and the design of supports for these students within the regular education classrooms The second tier involves additional instructional modifications, programming, and assessments that are developed for students who do not respond sufficiently to Tier 1 strategies. At this stage, the process includes assessing students skills and evaluation the instructional environment, curriculum, and delivery of instruction. Specific interventions are designed and delivered as needed, often in small-group contexts, and students progress is measured frequently The third tier addresses the needs of students who continue to display an inadequate response to instruction despite the use of high-quality, evidencebased strategies at tier 2. At tier 3, instruction and interventions are further individualized and students may be referred for evaluation of eligibility for special education A document that captures critical academic and behavioral information on a student, including universal screening data, interventions, student response to interventions, and live data on a student s current school experience; ILPs are used by school personnel, students, and/or parents Other Data Sources Utility STAR data STAR assessments measure student achievement in reading and math. The entire MHS student population completed STAR Reading and STAR Math testing during the school year. It is used to progress monitor students in Academic Literacy, Read 180, all- 9 year Algebra and Geometry. EXPLORE, PLAN, and ACT data Educational Planning and Assessment System (EPAS) is published by ACT. Student achievement is assessed at three key transition points in EPAS: 8th/9th (EXPLORE), 10th (PLAN), and 11th/12th grades (ACT). This information provides benchmarks for college/career readiness. PSAE data ACCESS The Prairie State Achievement Exam is completed by all Grade 11 students. Reading, mathematics, and writing are assessed. Standards-based, criterion referenced English language proficiency test designed to measure English language learners' social and academic proficiency in English D/F List Check Bi-monthly list of students in the non-passing zone (or near it) pulled by Tier 2 RTI committee What is the purpose of the Mundelein Learning Center (MLC)? MLC is a new Tier 2 intervention this year. The purpose of MLC is to assist students complete missing or incomplete assignments, projects and/or homework. It is a physical space where underperforming students are tutored by teachers and students (Peer Tutoring). MLC is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during homeroom. Students are tutored in English, math, science, and social studies. In the future, we would like to have an all day MLC where students have access to tutors and researchbased interventions throughout the school day. What is the purpose of Homeroom Academic Skill Center (HASC)? HASC is a Tier 3 intervention. The purpose of HASC is to assist students who have skill gaps in math and reading. These students are identified by their ISAT, STAR, and EPAS data. HASC is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during homeroom. In the future, HASC will be an intervention housed in the Mundelein Learning Center and open throughout the school day. HASC Math will utilize STAR Math, Accelerated Math, and Math Facts and Flash as RTI intervention tools. These tools will identify students baseline and progress. HASC Math is staffed by certified math teachers. HASC Reading will utilize STAR Reading, Accelerated Reading, and research-based curriculum as RTI interventions. These tools will identify students baseline and progress. HASC Reading is staffed by certified reading specialists. 10 The two charts below describes how classroom teachers refer students to Tier 2 interventions, and the how the RTI Committee will respond to the teacher referrals. MHS When a student s grade falls into the D/F range, the teacher needs to do the following: Continue to document Tier 1 interventions and student responsiveness in esped for the duration of your class. 11 MHS When a student is referred from Tier 1, the RtI committee will consider the following interventions: 12
