Item 29: Implemented interventions are chosen from the district protocol


Interventions should be chosen from a district-developed standard reading protocol. A Standard Reading Protocol provides a clear description of what instruction/intervention looks like across the Tiers of your RTI system. This includes an outline, for each Tier, of programs/intervention for common student needs, recommended group sizes for intervention groups, and the duration that interventions should be provided each day.

 When used consistently, a Standard Reading Protocol provides the following benefits:

  • Interventions can be provided with a high degree of fidelity if staff is trained adequately
  • Provides clear communication to all staff around what is and what is not an “intervention”
  • Students in need of intervention can receive immediate access to the intervention
  • Ensures consistency in decision making for students that may have a Specific Learning Disability
