When data reveals students are struggling and consistently scoring below 70%, the teacher should begin accommodations. If the student still does now show improvement, the teacher should refer the student to the PST Committee
The teacher reports back to the PST and progress monitoring results are reviewed.
The teacher reports back to the PST and student's progress monitoring results are reviewed.
A) If the student has made enough progress to be dismissed, the process stops.
B) If the student needs to continue accommodations, parents should be notified.
C) If the student is not making progress, continue Tier II and begin Tier III interventions.
D) Before starting Tier III interventions, teachers or team members must meet with the parents to get consent to gather additional information and inform parents of additional support. The Tier III Consent Form will serve as documentation of personal contact and consent to begin testing.
Tier III occurs after the PST reviews Tier II data (after 40-45 days of intense intervention) and determines the need to move into Tier III. Tier III includes only students not making progress of standards in Tier I and Tier II.
Instruction should be intensive, specialized, and taught in individual or small-group settings by resource, Title I, general education or special education teachers. This intervention occurs outside the regular education classroom. Weekly progress monitoring is required to determine student progress on measurable goals.
Intervention determined by the PST must be documented for a minimum of 8 weeks (40 days) and time cannot be counted when a student is absent.
A special education referral should only be made if no or very little progress on the standard(s) has been made according to the documented, measurable data.
Academic instruction should be very intensive, individualized, and specific. Behavioral instruction should include a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA), individual behavior data collection, and documented data of targeted interventions.
