Response to Intervention
R T I in Texas
The reauthorization of the Individuals with Disablities Education Improvement Act in 2004 and recent research in education both conclude the need for a Response to Intervention model for student success before Special Education services are needed. Specifically, the areas of reading, math, and behavior are included in the reauthorization.
Senate Bill (SB) 1153 Updates

Senate Bill (SB) 1153, 85th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2017, changed Texas Education Code (TEC), Section 26.0081. The changes require the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to update the Student Handbook Statement, which is found here in English and in Spanish.

The changes also require local educational agencies (LEAs) to provide parents with notice whenever their child begins to receive intervention strategies. The notice must contain specific requirements. TEA has created a template that LEAs can use that meets the statutory requirements. The notice is available here in English and here in Spanish.

 Finally, TEA has developed a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) document to assist LEAs and parents in understanding the requirements of SB 1153. That FAQ can be found here in English and here in Spanish.

The Building RTI Capacity project team is proud to announce the release of its newly revised A Resource for Student Evaluation Personnel in Schools Implementing Response to Intervention (RTI) (Revised)Revised in 2018 to reflect legislation related to parental notice, this booklet provides information and tools related to RTI and special education, collaborating for effective interventions, and using data to make intervention decisions.
