Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI2) Parent Letter
Content Area: r Reading r Mathematics
Three times a year, each student is given a universal screening assessment to determine his or her reading/math abilities. Your child’s scores show that he/she is experiencing some challenges in reading/math. Along with the universal screening, your child’s progress has been monitored frequently. Although he/she is receiving direct instruction daily in Tier I, he/she has still not shown the needed growth to maintain grade level progress. Your child will now be receiving additional time in interventions each day during Tiered Intervention.
This Tiered intervention will be done in small groups with trained personnel using research based materials. Your child’s progress will continue to be monitored every two weeks or more. Additional assessments may be completed in order to inform instruction and intervention. It is our goal to provide the best instruction and materials to help your child succeed.
We encourage you, as the parent or guardian, to ask your child to share his/her reading/math work with you regularly. Be sure to encourage your child to do his/her best and let them know you believe in his or her ability to improve. If you have questions, or would like more information please contact your child’s teacher.
Please sign this form and return to your child’s teacher.
