- Nevada Department of Education Policy Statement: Response to Scientific, Research-based Intervention (pdf)
- This policy statement was released by the Nevada Department of Education in April 2007. The statement was disseminated to parents of students across the state to inform them of Nevada’s support of the development of an overarching system of providing scientifically-based curriculum and instruction. It explains what such a system entails in terms of intervention plans, and reaffirms parents’ continuing right to request an evaluation of their child to determine eligibility for special education programs.
- Innovation Adoption Readiness Model (IARM) for Response to Intervention (RTI) (excel)
- This 2008 resource presents the Innovation Adoption Readiness Model (IARM) for Response to Intervention (RTI), a tool that offers a series of questions that allows districts and schools to rate themselves on readiness for implementing RTI. The questions pertain to the foundations for and components of RTI, including: leadership, high quality classroom instruction, universal screening, structured problem-solving process, evidence-based interventions, continuous progress monitoring, and system implementation fidelity. The tool also probes other elements necessary to support an effective RTI model, including: administrative support, principal as change facilitator, presence of “innovation change facilitators,” networks to other schools, change interventions, dimensions of professional learning communities, and organizational innovativeness. This tool was prepared for the Nevada Department of Education by Edward P. Caffarella of the State University of New York College at Cortland.
