Responding to the Needs of All Students
Today prevention and intervention command attention across the field of education. The focus on preventing failure through effective universal programs paired with early intervention is evident in recent federal initiatives including the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001, the Education Sciences Reform Acts of 2002, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) of 2004.
Students come to our schools with diverse backgrounds and needs. As student diversity increases, so do the challenges schools face to be responsive to all students. The CESA 6 RtI Network can assist districts in planning for student needs and monitoring learning. It also provides a forum to share what’s working and what’s not for timely problem solving of current issues.
This network aims to support districts, buildings, and classroom teachers on implementing a Response to Intervention framework in order to improve student learning and overall success. Processes and strategies for action planning, data analysis, formative assessment tools, and instructional practices will be its foundation.
