really, Teamann? Another post on RTI?
Why yes, yes indeed!
I know you have a LOT being juggled right now. Then we threw you for more of a loop after Tuesday’s inservice. (Insert oops here.)
We wanted to really isolate the TOP THREE things for you to know/remember about iSip right now. Our goal is not to throw you for a loop midstream. This is a campus with a history of success and we’re not negating any of what you’ve done that works. We’re just offering other ways to be successful, within the expectations and parameters of the districts expectations as well.
- As soon as you view your class’s Priority Report, you may check the intervention boxes. Then select Interventions Applied. You do not have to wait until the real time of teaching the lesson. The purpose is to make sure that you are aware of the intervention alerts and know what direction your intervention lessons should be following. It is a good idea for you to print a copy of your Priority Report, this will help in planning intervention lessons. (once you click, the alerts go away.)
- You should be logging into Istation at least once a week to check for new interventions in the Priority Report. This helps you check, clear alerts, and be informed of the interventions students need, right away.
- You may not schedule your own On Demand Assessments. This skews the data Istation provides. You must have the express permission of Myra Crump in grades 3-5 or Doris Montayne in K-2. This is being monitored at a district level. (Touch base with JH or me if you feel this is a need.)
Heather also clarified with me today that your students will NOT be changing tiers until they take that middle of the year assessment. Tiers do NOT change with each monthly test, that is just progress monitoring.
