Synopsis

Ensure the success of your school and improve the learning of all students by implementing Response to Intervention (RTI) as part of a continuous school improvement (CSI) process. This book shows you how to get your entire staff working together to design, implement, and evaluate a schoolwide prevention system. With specific examples, CSI experts Victoria Bernhardt and Connie L. Hebert demonstrate each step of the RTI process as it relates to continuous school improvement.By applying effective RTI strategies in your classrooms, you'll put your school on a path toward continuous improvement. The strategies in this book will help administrators, teachers, book study groups, and other educators use RTI to achieve their CSI goals!

Excerpt

Until you get continuous school improvement right ,
you cannot get right. If you do continuous
school improvement right, you will have a good
start toward an effective RtI system.
If you do RtI right, you will be engaged in a
continuous school improvement process.

Victoria L. Bernhardt and Connie L. Hebert

Attend any school staff meeting in the United States these days and you are likely to hear the topic Response to Intervention (RtI) being discussed. RtI refers to a comprehensive and deliberate multi-level instruction and assessment system designed by schools to address the learning needs of all students. RtI encourages early intervention to prevent student failure and to ensure academic success and positive behavior, while reducing the likelihood that students are wrongly identified for special education services. RtI is defined by the National Center on Response to Intervention as follows:

Response to intervention integrates assessment and intervention within a multi
level prevention system to maximize student achievement and to reduce
behavioral problems. With RtI, schools use data to identify students at risk for
poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based
interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions
depending on a student’s responsiveness, and identify students with learning
disabilities or other disabilities. (www.rti4success.org)
