Instructional Time


Direct Observation

Are to be conducted regularly using the RTI Fidelity rubric available to administrators via the Intervention Database Interface.

Parent Communication

Parent Letter sent at the beginning of the year from District.
Parent letters for tier placement/movement provided at the state web site are customizable.
Parents are to be informed about RTI at the school level through Open House, Parent Teacher Conferences and other means deemed necessary by the school.

Purple Folder Management

Student RTI records are kept in a purple folder and stored in the educational record that travels with the student as they move from school to school. During the year, the folder is typically housed in the intervention teacher's classroom and is updated at the data chat team meetings.

Labels for purple folders should be placed and filled out for all folders whether the student is currently in intervention or not. The labels should help with transitions from year to year.

Use these documents to maintain consistent RTI records across the district. The goal is for a receiving school to use the contents of the purple folder to pick up with intervention right where the student left off. Refer to samples included on the documents page to assure forms are filled out consistently across the district.
