Response to intervention: A personnel problem

The purpose of this study was to examine whether the key personnel are in place for effective implementation of the core components of Response to Intervention in a prototypical elementary school. This is a qualitative study using responsive interviews and artifact collection. The key findings were that two sites were fully implementing RtI and two were implementing some of the core components of RtI. The sites with full implementation had support teachers and extensive professional development on RtI. The key findings concluded that three key factors relating to complete implementation at the sites include adequate staffing of support teachers, access to time to collaboratively engage in data-based decision making, and high-quality on-going professional development.
