Response To Intervention: A Guide For Parents

NYSED has issued a memorandum reminding all school districts in New York State that, effective July 1, 2012, all school districts must have a Response to Intervention framework in place, consistent with section 100.2(ii) of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, as part of the process to determine if a student in grades kindergarten through grade four has a learning disability (LD) in the area of reading. Consistent with section 200.4(j)(4) of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, beginning on and after July 1, 2012, a school district may not use the severe discrepancy criteria to determine if a student in kindergarten through grade four has a learning disability in the area of reading.
