The Kentucky System of Interventions (KSI) was developed to assist schools and districts as they develop a comprehensive instructional system, integrating human, physical and financial resources and materials.
This comprehensive system addresses Response to Intervention (RtI), accelerated learning requirements, closing achievement gaps, highly effective instruction, readiness to learn and student transitions. KDE has expanded the framework for RtI to assist schools and districts in incorporating state and federal programs to provide a seamless system of intervention for improving student achievement. KSI is a process, which allows academic and behavioral needs to be met at all levels.
The KDE has developed a guidance document, A Guide to the Kentucky System of Interventions
, to provide resources in planning and decision making as districts and schools develop a system of interventions to meet the needs of all students.
The document highlights the following:
- universal screening tool
- diagnostic assessment
- data analysis
- school implementation team
- student intervention plan
- evidence-based instruction
- fidelity of implementation
- progress monitoring tool(s)
- parent involvement
