RtI Framework Funding and Budgeting

Implementing The Three-Tier Model of Student Intervention (the state's RtI framework) requires school leadership and administrators to strategically reallocate and leverage human and capital resources. They must also budget around priorities in their local implementation plan and/or EPSS school improvement plan.

Tier 1 Services
Tier 1 services, supports, and professional development may be funded in a variety of ways with mechanisms that already exist.

  • Operational funds
  • School improvement funds
  • Applicable grants or awarded state funds (Teacher Professional Development funds, Public School Reading Proficiency funds, etc.)
  • Title I and Title III funds as allowed*
  • Up to 15% Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) funds as allowed by IDEA and state special education rule. Federal guidance provides that it would be only for specific small groups or individuals identified in Tier 1 as needing additional academic and behavioral support to succeed in a general education environment, and as such, determined to be at risk for academic and behavioral problems K12 (with emphasis on K3).*
  • American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA stimulus) funds follow the same rules for the program to which it applies. For use with Title I funds, see www.ed.gov/policy/gen/leg/recovery/guidance/titlei-reform.pdf.

Tier 2 Services
Tier 2 services, supports, and professional development may be funded in a variety of ways with mechanisms that already exist.

  • Operational funds
  • School improvement funds
  • Applicable grants or awarded state funds (Teacher Professional Development funds, Public School Reading Proficiency funds, etc.)
  • Title I and Title III funds as allowed*
  • Up to 15% Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) funds as allowed by IDEA and state special education rule. Federal guidance (page 17) provides that it would be appropriate to use CEIS funds to support Tier 2 — supplemental, targeted intervention/instruction of students determined to be at risk for academic and behavioral problems K12 (with emphasis on K3).*
  • The use of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA stimulus) funds follows the same rules for the program to which it applies.

Tier 3 Services
Tier 3 services in New Mexico are special education and gifted education. These services are funded as follows:

*It is important for districts and charter schools to review guidance for use of federal funds related to Title I, Title III, and CEIS under an RtI framework. Please go to the following link at the National Center on Response to Intervention for a variety of guidance documents and FAQs:
