Texas district uses RTI to reduce special-education referrals

Schools in a Texas district have begun using a Response to Intervention program to help ensure students are not being incorrectly identified as needing special education. The RTI program applies three tiers of help for struggling students and has resulted in about 200 fewer referrals to special education in its first year at nine of the district's schools. "Interventions are helping these children," one principal said. "We can see the difference. Kids are getting help." Times Record News (Wichita Falls, Texas)
