Special Student Populations
At Alief ISD, we believe all students can learn. We provide a comprehensive, student-centered, problem-solving approach that integrates high-quality instruction, assessment, and intervention within a multi-tier prevention system for early identification of students who are at risk academically or behaviorally. Our collaborative efforts with other departments, campuses, parents, students and community organizations meet the needs of all students.
Alief ISD promotes effective teaching approaches and intervention strategies that address dyslexia and related difficulties in learning to read and write. We believe that all students have a right to achieve their full potential and that individual learning abilities can be strengthened through explicit, systematic, multisensory instruction.
Alief ISD is committed to ensuring that each student makes significant academic progress. To do this, we continuously review data and information that indicates how each student is progressing. This process is called Response to Intervention.
Response to Intervention (RtI) is a 3 - Tier Model for Intervention that provides all students with the instruction they require for learning success. The goal of RtI is to intervene early when students begin to struggle with learning or behavior. The RtI process prevents students from falling behind and developing learning or behavioral difficulties. RtI occurs at all grade levels with an emphasis on core content and behavior.
Parents are essential to their child’s success in school. Information from parents enhances decision making.
