We did it at our school last year

Clip to ScrapBook #3

but it was set up that way from the beginning. Expectations and responsibilities were set up then as well. Our SpEd numbers were declining fairly steadily so one SpEd teacher had a reduced caseload of 4--yes, you read that correctly...4 and she did the RTI intervention for gen ed the majority of the day. She was not the only one doing interventions though.

Through her work, the RTI team was better able to understand both RTI and SpEd data/progress, etc as well as eligibility issues. That I know of, only 2 kids were found eligible for SpEd through the RTI process. There were less frustrations within the gen ed population than many schools report.

It doesn't sound fair that they are dumping the RTI students on you with no other checks and balances in place. Also, finding the APPROPRIATE intervention is just as important as finding a research based one---someone is trying to pull a fast one there.
