Tier 3 Description

  • Tier 3 is in addition to Tier 1 and provides extra help to students who have not made adequate progress with Tier 2 interventions or who are significantly below grade level in math, reading and writing skills.  Tier 3 interventions are more explicit and more intensive than Tier 2 interventions. Students at this level should receive daily, intensive, small group, or individualized intervention targeting specific area(s) of deficit. It is necessary to consider other assessments, data and information on the student. The purpose of immediately placing a student in Tier 3 intervention is to increase the intensity of the intervention, not to shorten the duration of the intervention period.
