Response to Intervention (K-5)

Response to Intervention (RtI) is a multi-level framework that integrates instruction, assessment and intervention within a school-wide prevention system to maximize student achievement and reduce behavior problems. Through school-wide screening, students who need a targeted or intensive approach to learning are identified. Interventions are implemented, progress is monitored and data-based decision making occurs to determine the next steps for each student. The RtI team in each elementary building leads and supports the six steps of the RtI process.
