Ugh, this was a major headache for me this school year. I had ALL the 3rd grade SPED kids in my room (6), which meant they all went out for different interventions AND I was expected to give a couple some interventions in my room as well. It was a scheduling nightmare!!! I literally had to stand up to a few SPED people and say, look....you want to take this kid out and bring him back in time for 30 minutes of math?? That doesn't work for me! Oh man....my blood pressure went up a few times lol! So we don't have one big time for interventions, it's just when the resource people can get them and/or when you have time in your class for them to get additional instruction (and who has extra time in class these days???)
I agree with you suthernMommy....big scheduling headache!! I am in charge of RtI Math for grades k-4. I do my best to see all of these students in scheduled times from 8:30-10:45 M-Th. Fridays are left to test either Reading or Math depending on the week. The RtI Reading/Title teacher and a SpecEd teacher works throughout the day with their students. The Jr. high has a set time for RtI at the end of the day. I think that this works well for the Jr. high. Sometimes I feel like I'm short changing our students, but with the position I've been given for this year it's what works.
We do interventions all day long. It works pretty well in a first grade classroom. I can pull students while the others are at centers. This year we were lucky enough to hire a teacher to just pull students all day long and run interventions. I am so hoping that our literacy first scores this month are going to show major growth so we can justify keeping her next year. The initial reason for hiring her was enrollment but I am hoping that the needs of our students will when over budget. Big Wish huh?
