Instructional Decision-Making (IDM)/Response to Intervention (RtI)* for the Iowa Core: An Overview for Administrators

AEA 267 will be presenting a one day overview session on the Instructional Decision-Making (IDM)/Response to Intervention (RtI) *process during the month of June and July in each of the AEA 267 Service Delivery Centers of Cedar Falls (June 27), Clear Lake (June 28) and Marshalltown (July 8).  The goal of this meeting will be to provide building administrators with a clearer understanding of the IDM/RtI process, and how it can be used to enhance a building or district’s school/student improvement efforts and implementation of the Iowa Core Curriculum.  As a result of this meeting, building administrators will gain an awareness level understanding of the process and will be able to make a more informed decision regarding their building’s potential participation in the full series of training (6 days), which will begin in the fall of the 2011-2012 school year.  (see attachment for additional information).

This Instructional Decision-Making process will specifically assist schools in:

  • Strengthening the process used to address the needs of all students,
  • Improving staff’s ability to use data to make instructional decisions
  • Aligning, coordinating and focusing continuous improvement efforts on student achievement.

Meeting Note: The target audience for this training is LEA Administrators and AEA Staff. The state of Iowa is going to refer to this process as RtI (anticipated start date being 2012-13 school year) to better align with state and national efforts. Both the RtI and IDM process share the same fundamental beliefs and are similar in their implementation.
