The KSI is a framework for providing systematic, comprehensive services to address academic and behavioral needs for all students, preschool through grade 12.
Although KSI incorporates a 3-tier model, schools may configure a framework with 4 or more tiers of intervention based on their available resources. Practitioners should understand a framework becomes more complex with the addition of tiers. More information on the tier system may be found on our KSI Tier Description page.
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.
Note: KDE is currently looking for model KSI/RtI sites. Go to the Model Site page for more information.
