Transcript of Student Intervention Teams
How can we make SIT more effective?
What is SIT?
What does a SIT do?
What does a SIT not do?
It is not a process to refer a child for a special education evaluation or consideration for a 504 plan.
A SIT does not discuss special education or 504 students.
A SIT does not meet for the sake of meeting.
A SIT does not make decisions with insufficient data.
From the South Carolina Response to Intervention Technical Assistance Guide (page 21) “This team’s primary function is to analyze academic and/or behavior data for individual students to make important adjustments and to determine research-based interventions targeted to specific student needs.”
A general education initiative
A decision making process
1. Analysis of student data.
2. An intervention plan that is tailored to student and/or small group needs.
3. SIT members are equal partners on a collaborative team
4. Team members work towards building an action plan to resolve student needs.
What is Progress Monitoring
Brief assessments conducted frequently - weekly
Assessments occur throughout the intervention
Results are evaluated to determine whether student response to intervention is adequate or not
Most frequently, Curriculum Based Measures (CBM) is used for progress monitoring
Results are charted and analyzed to determine student progress regularly by the SIT
Rules are preset to determine when a student is not adequately responding to an intervention.
Who Serves on a SIT?
Key SIT participants:
Lead Classroom Teachers
Special Education Consultant
What does the SIT process look like?
What forms are required?
A. Identify and Define Needs
Review data from screening measures and identify classroom-wide and student needs
B. Analyze for Causes
Collect and summarize data from a variety of sources and determine why need exists
C. Develop and Plan
Decide appropriate intervention with clear, objective measurable goals documented in the plan
D. Implement and Monitor Plan
The intervention is then implemented with fidelity. Ongoing progress monitoring data is conducted.
Career Counselor (middle and high)
Student Support Specialist (as applicable)
ELL Consultant (as applicable)
Student (as applicable)
Other general education teachers
Speech Language Pathologists
Nurse (as applicable)
Supplementary participants (depending on needs of the team)
to ensure all students are given the opportunity to be successful in the general education classroom by providing a structured support system for teachers and parents when students are experiencing insufficient success in learning.
What is the purpose of SIT?
The hallmarks of the Decision-Making Process include:
E. Evaluate and Adjust the Plan
Determine if the plan was implemented with fidelity and review data.
Decide if intervention needs to be changed, continued and/or discontinued.
Example of progress monitoring reading fluency...
A great resource for collecting and graphing progress monitoring data.
Where do I get the forms?
Classroom Intervention Plan
Refer to SIT Roles handout for specific information on each team members responsibility.
A "targeted" intervention is specific to a student's difficulties. In our district, targeted interventions are documented in a classroom intervention plan.
Targeted interventions are not simply:
A targeted intervention is research based and intended to address the students specific academic/behavioral deficit.
Example: Johnny will engage in Reciprocal Teaching, for 30 minutes, 3 times a week with a peer tutor, to address his reading comprehension difficulties.
Where can I find appropriate "targeted" interventions?
Academic intervention finder
Full set of Benchmarking and Progress Monitoring assessments, Reading and Math, Grades K through 8. (Similar to DIBELS/AIMSweb)
Focus on behavior interventions
Data tracking tools
ChartDog Graph Maker is an easy way to visualize data, draw goal lines, and present progress monitoring data.
CBM generator is also available.
