Rule Text

(f) "Intervention plan" means a plan designed to improve the progress of students determined to be not making satisfactory progress. An intervention plan must be developed, documented, and implemented by a certificated teacher in conjunction with the student and, for students in grades K-8, the student's parent(s). For students whose written student learning plan includes only online courses, the intervention plan may be developed by the school-based support staff in conjunction with the student and certificated teacher and must be approved by the student's online certificated teacher. At minimum, the intervention plan must include at least one of the following interventions:

(i) Increasing the frequency or duration of contact with a certificated teacher for the purposes of enhancing the ability of the certificated teacher to improve student learning;

(ii) Modifying the manner in which contact with a certificated teacher is accomplished;

(iii) Modifying the student's learning goals or performance objectives;

(iv) Modifying the number of or scope of courses or the content included in the learning plan.

Comments

An intervention plan is part of the third core ALE requirement, monthly progress review, as identified in subsection 4. It is developed by a certificated teacher to improve the progress of students who are not making satisfactory progress. If the student’s WSLP includes only online courses, school-based support staff may develop the plan in conjunction with of the certificated teacher who must approve the plan. The implementation of an intervention plan allows for programs to continue to claim funding for students not making satisfactory progress.

See the section 7, Enrollment Reporting, for more information on intervention plans as they relate to funding.
