RTI and Parent Involvement

RTI and Parent Involvement

This online professional development module is designed to help educators understand parent notification requirements when a child receives intervention, particularly in a school that is implementing a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) or response-to-intervention (RTI) framework. We’ll explore what federal and state laws say about parent notification and RTI, including Senate Bill 1153. We’ll also provide some checklists you can use to compare against the notices your district is using. The goal is to inform your efforts to document parent notification when their child is receiving intervention.
