RtI Instructional Focus
Effective Instruction
Research indicates that schools with high expectations, a differentiated learning environment, high-quality instruction, and a high degree of student engagement will have 80-85% of their students meeting the desired educational outcomes in the regular education classroom. School District 201-U emphasizes differentiated instruction, a process of designing instruction that meets the varied needs of all students.

Instructional Practices
School District 201-U has implemented a diagnostic prescriptive model for Tier II and Tier III intervention programs that aligns with the problem-solving intervention team model. Each building will identify specific instructional practices, by content area, that are to be in place during instruction. As RtI is implemented, building teams will examine existing systems and make a direct connection to those that are effective. Decision-making will reflect all three tiers of instruction and be reflective of elementary, middle, and high school levels. Ineffective practices are to be changed or discontinued.

Tier I
  • Differentiated classroom instruction, designed to meet 80-85% of students’ learning needs
  • Universal screening (Fall, Winter, Spring) 
  • District core curriculum aligned to Common Core Standards
  • Support is provided for all students utilizing flexible grouping and peer assisted practice with data analysis
  • Collaborative discussions addressing measurable items with grade/content area teams

Tier II
  • Targeted/strategic small group supplemental instruction with interventions aligned to students’ learning needs (10-15% of students) in addition to core instruction
  • Strategic supplemental instruction several per week in addition to core instruction
  • Progress monitoring to assess student growth for 6-8 weeks using CBM
  • Record data points and discuss student progress with Intervention Team

Tier III
  • Provide intense individual/small group supplemental instruction, using targeted interventions (1-5% of students)
  • Individualized/explicit instruction addressing specific skill deficits (several times per week) in addition to core instruction
  • Progress monitoring to measure student growth for 4-6 weeks using CBM
  • Record data points and discuss student progress with Intervention Team
