Response to Intervention is a three tier process implemented in the teacher preparation programs to assist with student

success. We were seeing a trend in F reports and struggling students and failing in more than one course. We wanted to be proactive with our approach Provide assistance/interventions prior to failure Model adopted from the K-12 model Why did Rio Salado implement RTI? Data collected from struggling students noted a clear pattern and need for support Our student population is unique: ONLINE Concern with academics, progress and behavior

RTI Roles and Responsibilities Instructors are expected to assist with interventions and remediation at the course level. The Rio Salado Instructional team can provide additional support, resources and accommodations as needed to promote student success. Instructors can request resubmission of assignments, provide specific feedback and strategies, as well as short term course extensions. Primary responsibilities of an instructor is to provide support at the course level. Instructional Liaison The instructional liaison is the core of the team. These are the experts in their specific program. We have an instructional liaison who supports courses and instructors in each certification area. Expert in course, provide instructor support, track students who are struggling, coach instructors and provide training to instructors in regards to school wide and program wide updates. They also oversee the interventions at the Tier 1 level. They work directly with instructors to provide interventions at the Tier 1 and Tier 2 level. These experts also help make informed decisions on whether students move up and down the pendulum of the three tier process. Student Success Coach Provides exceptional customer service to currently enrolled students by executing all elements of proactive student progress monitoring sheets and goals including face to face meetings and

presentations, phone conversations and emails. Includes accountability for attaining student goals and tracking of student performance at Tier 2 and Tier 3 of the Response to Intervention process. Operations Team This team consists of the Faculty Chair of Education, Director, Undergraduate Studies and Operations of Teacher Education Department and Director of Teacher Education Innovations & Initiatives . This team decides when students are placed in tier 3, or considered Out of Program due to 2 or more Fs in coursework and whether students warrant a readmission to the program and escalated tier 3 consideration. Student- Student is responsible for keeping in contact and responding to timeframe associated with progress monitoring sheets and ILP plan. Students are to keep in direct correspondence with instructor and the Student Success Coach if escalated to a Tier 2 and 3 level of assistance/intervention. RTI Levels of Support TIER I - UNIVERSAL Instructors are expected to assist with interventions and remediation at the course level. The Rio Salado Instructional

team can provide additional support, resources and accommodations as needed to promote student success. Tier I interventions may be initiated for: Lack of academic progress Lack of professional behavior Course Failure Notification Interventions on this level include but are not limited to: Resubmission of assignments Specific feedback and strategies Additional communication with Rio Salado College (RSC) Staff Short term course extensions (at Instructor discretion)

TIER II - TARGETED If the student is not responsive to interventions provided at the course/instructor level they will be referred to the appropriate EDU Instructional Liaison for review. The Success Coach will work with the team to develop an intervention plan for Tier II students. Students who are placed in Tier II will receive additional and more individualized assistance/support to further reduce the likelihood for reoccurrence . Tier II interventions may be initiated for reoccurrence of:

Lack of academic progress Lack of professional behavior Concerns associated with Field Experience and/or Student Teaching Tier II Interventions on this level include but are not limited to: Review of Tier I interventions, if applicable Progress monitoring by assigned RSC Staff TIER III - INTENSIVE Tier III interventions are limited to a small

portion of the teacher education student population, less than 5%, and are initiated for insufficient progress or the severity of an identified concern. Tier III support will intensify on an individualized basis. Tier III interventions may be initiated due to escalation in frequency or intensity of identified behavior(s) professionally and/or academically including, but not limited to: Lack of growth in the identified area(s) of need Lack of academic progress Lack of professional behavior concerns associated with Field Experience and/or Student Teaching Interventions at Tier III will include an interview with EDU Staff member(s) to determine continuation in the program and

may include but is not limited to: Program Removal Gradebook example: Instructor Role: Monitoring of course progress Progress: 1st checkpoint 3rd week (from individual start date) Email student and copy and paste note into notes section (instructor notes & student notes) of gradebook. Example screenshot from gradebook for concerns with progress in course: 2nd checkpoint 4th week (if student has not responded and/or submitted assignments up to

date) Phone call to student (if no response, leave a message.) Continued progress checkpoints: 3rd check 5th week If no response, or work is not submitted, after 1st and 2nd checkpoint, complete Occurrence Report instructional liaison. The Occurrence Report will be discussed at the Instructional Team meeting and your Liaison will contact you regarding the required actions and/or next steps within the RTI process. Instructor continues to monitor and

provide support as needed. Academic/Behavioral Concerns In addition to submitting ORs for lack of progress, instructors are encouraged to report the following: Academic/Content knowledge Student is exhibiting concerns in spelling, grammar and does not seem to have a solid grasp on understanding the content related to course: IDEA is a government regulated program that helps all students. Behavioral Emails and correspondence is not of an appropriate tone or response. I need a response immediately, my issue is urgent and I need on assignment #3 today.

Rios Next Steps Moving forward with RTI Haberman results: We want to continue to include the Haberman as a pre screener and also notify students of their results from this to help us organize data and track student success. Where will Rio Salado be with RTI in 2016? Continue to work on ensuring we are providing interventions, track success of interventions and reflect on what works and what we can improve upon to assist with student long term success in our programs. Cheat sheets: Help review the process and helps ensure that everyone is on the same page of the process. Example cheat sheet:

Step IL Instructor generates OR Agenda Updates RTI Notification to Student RTI Follow Up with Instructor Monitoring Students Maintaining OR SC

Sends notification email to appropriate IL including: -Course name -Instructor -TIR/PB/UG -Issue (A,B, P) -Status update (all courses) -Tier ? If TIER I - IL will determine from SC info. And further investigation if student needs to be placed on ILT agenda TIER II & III SC investigates and determines whether or not student needs to be placed on Agenda. Discuss students status and next steps at ILT meeting.

Will email TIER I student with OR Notification to student (dependent notification and CC instructor. Email on ILT discussion outcome) instructor individually if additional information needs to shared or gathered. Follow-up with instructor to ensure TIER I interventions are being followed: -Extra feedback -Notes in gradebook -Phone calls -Resubmission of assignments (scoring 3 or less) Follow-up with instructor to ensure TIER II interventions are being followed:

-Extra feedback -Notes in gradebook -Phone calls -Resubmission of assignments (scoring 3 or less) -Keep SC informed -Maintain student progress monitoring sheets -Bring to attention of ILT as needed -Weekly maintenance of OR to How can RTI be part of your Teacher Prep program? Questions to answer while in group? 1) What are some methods your school currently utilizes to

track student progress and success? 2) What areas do you feel your college needs to focus on with students: progress, academics, behavior? 3) Does your team seem common student issues within each one of your education departments? 4) What are the pros and cons to its implementation at the community college level?
