All schools give their students the opportunity to learn. But, schools with an effective Response-to-Intervention (RTI) framework ensure student learning by structuring early and timely interventions into the school day.
RTI is changing the way schools teach. Educators with an RTI mindset know that it’s not only students in special education who need extra help, but that any student, at any time, may need a little more support to keep up with grade-level work. One of the biggest challenges of a good RTI program is providing “Tier 2” interventions to students who have not yet mastered the priorities of Tier 1 core instruction.
Join RTI expert Chris Weber for a 2-hour webinar on the why, what, when, and how of this “forgotten tier” of RTI. While Tier 2 is critical to the success of your RTI program and the success of your students, it is often missing from schools’ plans and implementation. Learn how you can set up an effective tier of services for students who need a little extra help without putting more new demands on staff and resources!
