Burdette, Paula
Project Forum
Based on the importance of Response to Intervention (RTI) and Early Intervening Services (EIS) for state education agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) and many other stakeholder groups, Project Forum at the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) conducted a policy forum on RTI and EIS as part of its cooperative agreement with OSEP. The forum was held October 30-31, 2006. A wide variety of the most knowledgeable stakeholders in the areas of RTI and EIS attended and the forum was professionally facilitated. The agenda for the forum began with contextual statements and presentations from NASDSE and OSEP leadership and followed with participants identifying barriers to the implementation of RTI, generating policy recommendations for successful implementation and identifying specific implementation considerations. This proceedings document provides legislative background pertaining to RTI and EIS, OSEP's description of RTI and a summary of barriers and recommendations generated by the participants in the policy forum. Appended are: (1) list of participants; and (2) agenda. (Contains 6 footnotes and 9 online resources.)
