What is RTI

Response to Intervention/Instruction

Our goal is to support a systematic approach to address the academic and emotional needs of our students by working with staff to:
  • Problem solve
  • Develop an action plan
  • Share resources
  • Monitor progress
RTI is a process of helping struggling students become successful.The process focuses on how a specific student responds to a specific intervention. In its simplest form, RTI includes the following steps:
  • Identify a struggling student
  • Implement an intervention to solve the problem
  • Check to see if it worked
If the intervention works, you should naturally continue it. If the intervention does not work, you should try a different intervention.
