Debbie: My daughter who has dyslexia (1st grader) has been given Resource Room (5 hours per week) with Speech and OT to address her difficulties. Prior to this IEP, however, she received AIS (Tier II) as an RTI for 5 hours, ELA and 2 hours, Math per week. The principal is stating that she will need to continue receiving RTI (7 hrs out of the classroom) along with the 7 1/2 hours out of the classroom for RR and related services. This is a total of 14 1/2 hours out of the classroom (approximately 3 days per week). I do not wish for my daughter to be pulled out this often when she is reading only 1 1/2 levels below grade appropriately standards (she is just about to be a Fountas & Pinnell Level I and should be a Level J). Please help! This principal states that I have no right to remove her from the Academic Intervention Service (AIS) as I requested. Is that true? I know I have special education rights like this.
