Instructional Support Team (I.S.T.)/RTII

Every effort should be made to adapt the regular classroom program to meet a child’s needs as soon as learning difficulties or strengths are noted.  Classroom adjustments may include curricular adaptation, modifications in assignments, and/or changes in the instructional or behavior management approach being used.  RtII (Response to Instruction and Interventions) is also utilized when the academic team feels that the student is not showing progress.  This involves changing to more intensive instruction and curricular interventions specific to areas of weakness.
