Response to Intervention
Kickboard Debuts RTI System
Kickboard has added a new response-to-intervention (RTI) feature to its
school-wide behavior management system. The RTI system is designed to
help teachers track details of behavior intervention plans and monitor
data to determine the effectiveness of interventions.
to Jennifer Medbery, CEO of Kickboard, the RTI system builds on the
capabilities of the the Early Warning Indicator System that the company
introduced last year. "The Early Warning Indicator System gives schools
the ability to establish 'triggers' to instantly alert educators if
students are veering off track," she said in a news release. "Now, with
the RTI System, they can immediately create behavior intervention
plans, assign interventions, access real-time data points to see if the
interventions are working and take action as needed."
can use the RTI system to assign any interventions from Kickboard's
configurable Intervention Library to a behavior intervention plan and
they can also identify positive behaviors to replace negative
behaviors. According to the company, the RTI system makes it faster and
easier for teachers to monitor student progress based on quantitative
data. Teachers can enter data into Kickboard as part of their daily
routines, and then Kickboard automatically populates the data in the
individual student's plan. The RTI system includes graphs and other
visuals that show student progress on intervention goals and the
likelihood of meeting goals based on current progress.
