Michigan's Integrated Behavior and Learning Support Initiative (MIBLSI) is a state and federally funded project. MIBLSI helps intermediate and local school districts implement and sustain a multi-tier system of supports (MTSS) in their schools to improve student outcomes in behavior and learning. MTSS focuses on providing high quality instruction and interventions matched to student need. MIBLSI focuses on evidence-based practices implemented with fidelity that are sustainable over time. MIBLSI utilizes data-based decision making at all levels of implementation support.
The mission of NCLD is to improve the lives of the 1 in 5 children and adults nationwide with learning and attention issues—by empowering parents and young adults, transforming schools and advocating for equal rights and opportunities. We’re working to create a society in which every individual possesses the academic, social and emotional skills needed to succeed in school, at work and in life.
PBIS is a research-based framework for creating safer, more effective schools by reinforcing positive behavior and preventing and addressing problem behavior. PBIS provides the means of selecting, organizing and implementing these evidence-based practices by giving equal attention to:
*Clearly defined and meaningful student outcomes
*Data-driven decision making and problem-solving processes
*Systems that prepare and support implementers to use these practices with high fidelity and durability
The RTI Action Network is dedicated to the effective implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI) in school districts nationwide. Our goal is to guide educators and families in the large-scale implementation of RTI so that each child has access to quality instruction and that struggling students – including those with learning and attention issues – are identified early and receive the necessary supports to be successful. The RTI Action Network is a program of the National Center for Learning Disabilities, funded by the Cisco Foundation and in partnership with the nation’s leading education associations and top RTI experts.
This toolkit provides a clear vision of best practice related to an RTI-based SLD identification process. With this vision, school systems can develop structures to ensure that the identification process for specific learning disabilities facilitates decision making about instructional decisions to improve outcomes for students.
The Center on Response to Intervention at the American Institutes of Research (AIR) continues the work of the National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI), which AIR ran from 2007-2012 with a grant from the Office of Special Education Programs. When the Center’s federal funding ended in 2012, AIR took over upkeep and maintenance of the Center’s website and products and continues to provide support for states, districts, and schools implementing RTI.
The Wisconsin Response to Intervention (RtI) Center is a product of collaboration between the Cooperative Educational Service Agency (CESA) Statewide Network and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI). The center was created to assist Wisconsin’s educational systems to build capacity, adopt and implement high quality practices, make informed decisions, ensure sustainability of efforts and increased success for all students. The Wisconsin Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Network operates within the Wisconsin RtI Center with a specific focus on behavior.
The IRIS Center is a national center dedicated to improving education outcomes for all children, especially those with disabilities birth through age twenty-one, through the use of effective evidence-based practices and interventions.
In June of 2008, The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) published a Response to Instruction/Intervention (RtI) Implementation Plan, which provided the initial, formal, state-level framework to assist districts with critical components, definitions and applications to support the development of school-wide implementations. This document marks an important point in our state's development, reflecting the collective intent at that time. Since 2004, Florida has engaged in continuous efforts to make sense of how systematic problem-solving and the RtI framework integrate the various elements of Florida’s system of education.
The mission of the Office of Learning Supports (OLS) is to shape, develop, and increase the collective capacity of schools and districts to implement and sustain a multi-tiered system of supports, through a problem-solving culture that integrates data, practices, and systems which improve educational outcomes for every student.
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a school-based, multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and reduce behavior problems.
With RTI, schools 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.
Across the country, states are focused on providing early intervention—often called a Response to Intervention (RTI) method—to address deficits in student learning. In Tennessee, we have taken a unique RTI approach called RTI2: Response to Instruction and Intervention. Learn more about how our approach is different by reading Classroom Chronicles: Using RTI2 to support teachers and strengthen student outcomes.
Tennessee has been implementing RTI2 in elementary schools since 2014-15 and middle schools since 2015-16. Beginning in the 2016-17 school year, implementation of Tennessee’s RTI2 Framework will be mandatory for all K-12 public schools, in all grade levels.
RTI is a component of the Rhode Island Comprehensive Literacy Plan which supports educators in better understanding the components of literacy and implementation of best practices in daily instruction. Included are strategies, methods, and resources for assessment, intervention, and literacy in the content-areas.
A general education approach of high quality instruction, early intervention, and prevention and behavioral strategies aligned with Multi-Tiered Systems of Support.
IDEA 2006 and PA Chapter 14 regulations provide two options for the determination of a specific learning disability (SLD). Schools may use the ability-achievement discrepancy model or Response to Intervention (RtI). In order to use RtI for SLD determination, schools must seek approval through the Bureau of Special Education’s established RtI/SLD Approval/Renewal Process. Schools that wish to use RtI methodologies as part of comprehensive SLD eligibility determination must demonstrate that they have technically adequate models and/or implementation fidelity. The RtI/SLD approval/renewal process and application have recently been revised and can be accessed below for review.
NC MTSS is a multi-tiered framework which promotes school improvement through engaging, research-based academic and behavioral practices. NC MTSS employs a systems approach using data-driven problem-solving to maximize growth for all.
