Does my child have to go all the way through the TIER Process (also called Response to Intervention or RTI) before he or she can be evaluated for Exceptional Education eligibility?

A:

No, although schools can use the TIER process as one way to identify children who might benefit from exceptional education services, they cannot use it to keep your child from being evaluated.  This memo from Dr. Melody Musgrove, Director of the Office of Special Education, explains this in more detail:  http://www2.ed.gov/policy/speced/guid/idea/memosdcltrs/osep11-07rtimemo.pdf
