Identifying Students For Individualized Support
Tier 3 interventions are for the few students who need more individualized intensive support in addition to the school-wide supports. Tier 3 intervention should be considered for any student whenever behavior appears to be significantly interfering with the learning process. This includes students whose problem behavior is:
- Highly disruptive
- Impeding Learning
- Resulting in social or educational exclusion
- Nonresponsive to Tier 2 interventions implemented with fidelity
Schools should develop a school-wide system for identifying students in need of intensive support. Data sources can include universal screening, teacher nomination forms, office discipline referrals, suspension data, academic test scores, grades, and current medical documents.
