Classroom Intervention (CI) is the process we use to meet the academic and behavioral needs of students. It is based on the State of Pennsylvania’s Response to Intervention (RtI) model. The Classroom Intervention Coordinator (CIC) works with students, teachers, and parents to provide specific interventions and monitor student progress. Parents are a big part of the Classroom Intervention process.
The Classroom Intervention Core Team meets once a month to discuss the progress of students who are currently in Classroom Intervention and make recommendations for instruction and/or behavior management. The Core Team consists of administrators, counselors, Title I Coordinator, Speech and Language Therapist, and the Classroom Intervention Coordinator. The CIC meets regularly with teams of teachers to discuss students’ progress and make recommendations based on the needs of individual students. Parents receive updates on their child’s progress. If a more intense intervention program or an at home component is recommended, other specialists are involved and parents are encouraged to participate in the decision making process.
