RTI is not a program but a pro-active approach that offers details with facts. It takes it a step further byimplementing that both the teachers and students are angels. Schools with positive and successfulintervention systems include from DAY ONE, teachers in the decision-making process.There are many ways to help and support at-risk students and one is through interventionprograms such as the After School Programs. This is our second year of the After School Program and wehave seen many changes both good and bad, but we always strive with passion that the students we servewill benefit and improve their learning environment. The framework for a supportive interventionprogram vary from school to school, districts, and even in the community. In our after school program,the have clearly identified the goals of the program which is to provide a unique experience for all of ourstudents to both empower and enhance by engaging them in activities that are challenging, educational,and fun. We foster a student-centered atmosphere, provide trainings and support for our staff that worksclosely with the students, provide both student and their families with links to multiply agencies, and atwo-way communication between school and home. The objective is that we must provide a program thatempowers the student and the families, engaging families in efforts for support, and building strongconnections between students and adults. "Every student is at risk for some reason. We cannot wait until astudent is labeled as such to intervene; rather, we must plan for the success of all students" (Handville,2007).Developing an intervention plan is like building a house, we cannot just start anywhere but first wehave to lay the foundation and then build upon that foundation. So let's begin:1.Establishing a team at the district level to analyze and complete assessments of the school'sresponse to at-risk students.
