Include documentation of previous interventions

The referral process includes a review of existing data about your student. Existing data includes, but is not limited to, any information you have provided, any medical information available, and any information about your student’s performance at school or in other settings (such as preschool, private school, at home, and other settings). Based on all of this information, the district must make a decision within 25 school days as to whether or not it will evaluate the student.
Student evaluation will determine whether student meets requirements for special education services
The student must have a disability or disabilities.
The student's disability/disabilities adversely affect educational performance.
The student’s unique needs cannot be addressed through education in general education classes alone – with or without individual accommodations and requires specially designed instruction (SDI).
Collaborate with Psychologist, Special Ed teacher, and other invested parties to ensure student's IEP is being carried out.
RTI Team will provide further intervention strategies
conduct formative assessments daily to adjust lessons to student's needs
small groups or 1 on 1 help allows for more direct instructions
know how a student learns best and adjust the lesson to fit this need (kinesthetic, visual, etc.)
