What is Scientific Research Based Intervention (SRBI)?
New requirements by the Connecticut State Department of Education focus on methods to address student learning needs. All Connecticut school districts are required to use a framework entitled Scientific Research Based Intervention (SRBI) to address this mandate.
As stated in Using Scientific Research-Based Interventions: Improving Education for All Students, SRBI is the practice of providing scientific, researched-based instruction and intervention matched to students’ needs, with important educational decisions based on students’ levels of performance and learning rates over time. Avon Public Schools are committed to using the SRBI framework to help schools focus on classroom instruction and interventions that meet the needs of all students.
