The KSI is a
framework for providing a systematic, comprehensive multi-tiered system of
supports to address academic and behavioral needs for all students, preschool
through grade 12.
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.
