RTI - Response To Intervention
A multi-tiered approach that provides instruction at the students level.
Students' progress is closely monitored at each stage of instruction to determine the need for further research-based instruction and/or intervention in general education, in special education, or both.
The four main elements of the RTI framework are;
high quality instruction for all students,
ongoing student assessment,
and family involvement.
RTI is not a program. It is a comprehensive system for organizing the district's effort for improving achievement of all students.
