R.T.I. Intervention as Resource

Our school has a weak intervention program in that we have one part-time person for the whole school. So, what is starting to happen is that Resource is being used as THE Intervention. This adds to the caseload and requires additional data collection. I am told that this is common practice.

How many of you carry intervention students on a regular basis?

I understand that it is supposed to be a 3rd Tier intervention and last 9 weeks, but that's not what happens at our school. Recently, I was assigned a student that was struggling academically and she was put in with my neediest behavior kids because I was the only one teaching Wilson and they (R.T.I team) lacked any other research based program. It just was not an appropriate placement. The student did not have a problem with phonics.
