Response to Intervention


 The overarching purpose of RtI is to improve educational outcomes
for every  student.

What is RtI?

Response to Intervention is an educational model promoting early identification for students who are struggling academically or behaviorally. RtI involves intervention tiers of increasingly intense levels of instruction for students based on student need. Most students will thrive with the general education instruction. For those who don't, interventions are targeted, based on the student need, and will be implemented in the student’s classroom. As the students’ needs dictate, more tiers of interventions are available for students as the diagram indicates.

The Right Thing to Do!

The laws leading to this change include the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001 and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) of 2004. Both laws underscore the importance of providing high quality, evidence-based instruction and interventions, and they hold schools accountable for the progress of all students in terms of meeting grade level standards.
