The Kentucky System of Intervention (KSI) is a framework for providing systematic, comprehensive services to address academic and behavioral needs for all students, preschool through grade 12. The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) has developed this guidance document to provide resources in planning and decision making as districts and schools develop a system of intervention to meet the needs of all students. This guidance document addresses several key points.
KDE established KSI to assist schools and districts as they develop a comprehensive instructional system, integrating human, physical and financial resources and materials. This comprehensive system addresses Response to Intervention (RTI), accelerated learning requirements (see Appendix E), closing achievement gaps, high-quality instruction, readiness to learn and student transitions.
