Response to Intervention (RtI)Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tier approach to identify and support students with learning and behavior needs. The RTI team meets bi-weekly to identify and monitor at-risk students. The team is made up of a grade level teacher, administrator, counselor, instructional coach, school psychologist, and parent outreach assistant.
Struggling learners are identified by data analysis and teacher reference. Identified students are provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning. These services may be provided by a variety of personnel, including general education teachers, special educators, counselors, administrators, and other specialists. Progress is closely monitored to assess both the learning rate and level of performance of individual students. Educational decisions about the intensity and duration of interventions are based on individual student response to instruction. RTI is designed for use when making decisions in both general education and special education, creating a well-integrated system of instruction and intervention guided by child outcome data.
