Teacher Request of Resource Services

If a teacher feels that a student would be eligible for services, the teacher must begin and complete the Alleman R.T.I. process. This process will allow teachers to identify and explain areas of concern as well as show what types of accommodations and/or interventions the teacher has attempted to address the noted concern(s). If the teacher finds that the accommodations and/or interventions used over a period of time will continue to be needed in order for the student to be successful, or feel that the accommodations and/or interventions used did not help the student become more successful, the student and concerns will be further addressed with the resource teacher. If the resource teacher, along with RISD, find that an evaluation is deemed necessary, written consent will be needed.The team will meet together for a Domain meeting to go over areas of evaluation and the school district has 60 school days to complete the evaluation and determine eligibility.
