RtI is a process of implementing high quality; scientifically validated instructional practices based on learners needs. This is done through monitoring students’ progress and adjusting instruction based on the students’ responses.
Students that do not meet benchmark on school-wide assessments such as Scantron, DRA, MLPP and Study Island are provided additional support through reading or math interventions. Interventions and strategies are implemented and monitored for each student through the RtI process.
Progress monitoring is a scientifically based practice that is used to assess students’ academic performance and evaluate the effectiveness of the instruction and intervention. Students identified as "at-risk" are progress monitored weekly. Data gathered from these assessments is utilized to determine whether students are making adequate gains or in need of additional intervention.
At Cesar Chavez Academy, we believe that early interventions are key to academic success. Certified teachers, serving as lead interventionists, plan and implement strategic learning activities based on the needs of identified students. In addition, highly qualified interventionists implement small group reading and math instruction on a daily basis. The RtI process along with interventions has made a great impact on ensuring that all students are receiving a quality education.
