• Response to Intervention (RtI) is a three-tier prevention, early identification and intervention strategy provided by the general education and/or support teacher in the general education classroom.  It is based on the concept of providing evidence-based instructional and behavioral strategies by highly qualified staff that specifically addresses the needs of the student and is monitored and reviewed frequently.  Intervention programs are research-based and the information collected during the RtI process is used to make informed educational decisions regarding the student’s educational program. 

    The Goals of RtI

    • Intervene early and prevent academic failure
    • Implement  evidence-based interventions for all students
    • Decrease the number of unnecessary referrals to special education
    • Take a proactive approach  rather than  reactive to student difficulties
    • Increase parent participation at all tier levels
    • Encourage teachers to use data to make informed instructional decisions
