•  What is Response to Intervention (RTI)

    v Response To Intervention (RTI) is a new model that supports the learning of all students.  Response to intervention integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and to reduce behavior problems.  With RTI, our school identifies students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student’s responsiveness, and identify students with learning disabilities or other disabilities. 

    v    RTI provides both academic and behavior interventions for students at risk.

    v   The RTI process is a problem-solving process and it allows skilled specialists, teachers, parents and administrators to work together and really look at the individual growth that’s taking place for students, to improve learning by delivering effective instruction and interventions to all students.   


    The pyramid below Pyramid Response to Intervention (PRTI) combines the RTI model with a pyramid of interventions.  It integrates regular and special education.   There are three levels of interventions.

    Tier 1:  Core Instruction Interventions

    v All students

    Tier 2:  Students at risk; strategic, targeted group of students monitored

    vTargeted group interventions

    Tier 3:  Students at risk; intensive interventions and progress monitoring

    vIndividual interventions


    Universal Screening: all students are assessed 3 times/year DIBELS and DRA assessments are administered as an initial baseline. These assessments help to identify students who do not meet or who exceed grade level expectations. Results can be used as a starting point for instruction or to indicate a need for further evaluation.

    CBM: Curriculum-Based measurement model (scientifically research based strategies) used to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction and student growth.

    Progress Monitoring: monitor students response to interventions.
