RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION
Atlanta Public Schools follows Georgia’s four-tiered Student Achievement Pyramid of Interventions to provide appropriate and effective Response to Intervention services, which incorporates universal screening, targeted interventions, and a team approach to decision-making and the development and implementation of services.
Tiers I and II Interventions are facilitated in the general education environment by grade level and department teams. Documentation from each tier is utilized to make decisions regarding interventions and movement between tiers.
Tier III Interventions and services are facilitated by the Student Support Team (SST). The SST Chairperson ensures the process is followed and team decisions are made according to the outcome of data, indicating student progress.Tier IV Interventions and services are facilitated through specialized programs orinstructional delivery models such as the Program for Exceptional Children, EnglishLanguage Learners, or Gifted Instruction.
