What is RTI?
Response to Intervention (RTI) is an approach that promotes an integrated system that connects general, compensatory, gifted, and special education in providing standards-based, high quality instruction and targeted intervention that is matched to students’ academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs.

The purpose of RtI implementation is to improve educational outcomes for all students.
Core Principles of RTI:
Developed by Colorado RtI Task Force and Implementation Team composed of parents and educators

We believe that . . .

  • ALL children can learn and achieve high standards as a result of effective teaching.
  • All students must have access to a rigorous, standards-based curriculum and researched-based instruction.
  • Intervening at the earliest indication of need is necessary for student success (Pre K-12).
  • A comprehensive system of tiered interventions is essential for addressing the full range of student needs.
  • Student results improve when ongoing academic and behavioral performance data inform instructional decisions.
  • Collaboration among educators, families and community members is the foundation for effective problem-solving and instructional decision making.
  • On-going and meaningful involvement of families increases student success.
  • All members of the school community must continue to gain knowledge and develop expertise in order to build capacity and sustainability of RtI.
  • Effective leadership at all levels is crucial for the implementation of RtI.
