Response to Intervention
Response to Intervention or Multi-tier System of Supports is the practice of providing high-quality instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals and applying child response data to important educational decisions.

          NASDSE, RtI: Policy Considerations and Implementation, 2005 (emphasis added)

 

Core Principals…

1.   We can effectively teach all children.
2.   Intervene early.
3.   Use a multi-tier model of support.
4.   Use a problem-solving method for decision making.
5.   Research-based interventions/instruction to the extent available.
6.   Monitor student progress to inform instruction.
7.   Use data to make decisions.
8.   Use assessment for different purposes.

Mail Merge Documents for Individual Student Reports
Individual student reports can be used to share universal screening scores for reading, writing, and mathematics. Templates below can be modified to include school name and PBIS expectations.  Schools can add or delete measures from the template to meet their needs.

Complete reports by hand or by using a mail merge process.  To use the mail merge reports, contact Jenni Trusock for a Universal Screening Spreadsheet. Click for mail merge directions  or for more information about managing screening data.  Scroll down for information about PELI Parent Reports.

Using Mail Merge to Create PELI Parent Reports

Download the PELI data from dibels.net.  Follow the directions below to format the Excel file for data merge.  Your final file should look like the "Sample PELI Excel file with tiers as numbers" linked below.
Download the PELI Parent Report Template below.  Add your school name and behavior objectives.  Make any additional modifications, such as the current year.  SAVE.
Follow the mail merge directions to merge the parent report with the PELI data that you saved in the Excel file. This should produce a two-page report.  Print back-to-back for a one-page report with parent information on the back.  Contact Jenni Trusock with questions.
