• What is Response to Intervention (RTI)?

    Response to Intervention (RTI) is a comprehensive assessment and intervention process that uses learning rate over time and level of performance to inform educational decisions while core instruction, with differentiation, is occurring.  RTI provides a framework by which students are provided high-quality instruction and interventions matched to their individual instructional needs in order to ensure academic growth.

    Through a team-based approach, multiple sources of data are used to develop prevention-based efforts and respond to student needs using evidence-based interventions.  Efforts are evaluated through progress monitoring and summative assessments.
