Response to Intervention
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students (academically, behaviorally, and socially/emotionally). The RTI process starts with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all students in the general education classroom. Students who may be struggling are provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning. The progress of students receiving intervention is monitored to see if the interventions are successful or if there needs to be an increase of support. The decisions about the intensity and duration of interventions are based on individual student response to instruction, data, and progress monitoring.
