  • Response to Intervention Plan Template
    Section 100.2(ii), added to Part 100 of the Commissioner's Regulations, set forth minimum requirements for using an RtI process to determine a student's response to research-based intervention. One of the minimum requirements outlined requests districts to establish a plan and policies for implementing school-wide approaches and pre-referral interventions [8 NYCRR section 100.2(ii)]. The Response to Intervention Plan Template for Individual Districts and schools provides guidance for documenting your district's RtI framework and implementation process.

  • RtI Guidance Document
    The New York State Education Department is pleased to announce the release of the document Response to Intervention: Guidance for New York State School Districts.

It is available at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/specialed/RTI/guidance/cover.htm or NYSED RtI Guidance Document.pdf. The purpose of the guidance document is to provide information and guidance to school districts on how to design and implement an effective RtI process, including, but not limited to information regarding regulatory requirements, quality indicators, staff development, tools to assist districts in selecting a specific model and procedures for the use of RtI data in determining if a student has a learning disability.
