    RTI

    Response to Intervention (RtI) is defined as “the change in behavior or performance as a function of an intervention. RtI is implemented as a leveled or tiered approach to instructional delivery that includes interventions of increasingly higher intensity, based on a student’s need; that is, a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS). A problem-solving method of decision-making is employed and results of efforts are documented. The process is intended to result in better learning opportunities (academic and behavioral) and higher achievement for all students.  For more information, click here
