  • All student intervention plans are developed with all relevant stakeholders; including the student. The student goals are established and frequently reviewed. All necessary documentation is available for review.
  • Student interventions are established to meet individual student needs, student progress is monitored regularly, and data is shared with the necessary stakeholders.

  • There is evidence of fidelity to the intervention process.
  • Use a universal screener to indicate students that may need additional evaluation.
  • Use a diagnostic assessment to further assess students to identify specific areas of strength and weakness.
