East Providence School District is committed to ensuring each child makes significant academic progress.  To do this, we continuously review information that tells us how each child is progressing.  Teacher teams in your school use this process, called “Response to Intervention.” 

This is a way of organizing instruction that has two purposes: 

1. To identify children needing help in reading, math, and behavior, and prevent the development of serious learning problems; and

2. To identify children who, even when they get extra help, make very limited progress. Research has shown that these children sometimes have learning differences.  

You may also request an evaluation at any time if you think your child may have a learning disability. No evaluation would take place without a conference with you, and your written consent. If you have any questions about this information, please contact the school’s Principal or RTI coordinator.
