    1. I think it is great that DCPS in implementing EBIs in their schools. As an educator, it is important to be aware of any possible traumatic experiences a child has endured and how it may affect their behavior and/or academic performance.

The non-gifted students had RTI and from what I heard, all they did was spend 15 minutes of homework and play cards for the rest of the period. Back then, I had no idea what RTI stood for or what it meant. Was RTI simply a free period where students can do whatever?
