Response to Instruction/Intervention (RtI)

Response to Instruction/Intervention (RtI)

Response to Instruction (RtI) refers to an instructional framework that

promotes a well-integrated system connecting general, gifted,

supplemental, and special education services in providing high

quality, standards-based instruction and intervention that is matched

to students’ academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs. RtI

combines core instruction, assessment, and intervention within a

multi-tiered system to increase student achievement and reduce

behavior problems.

The RtI process requires the involvement of classroom teachers,

parents, students (when appropriate), building specialists, (e.g.,

principals, academic coaches, special education teachers, ELL

teachers, counselors, gifted teachers, speech therapists) and

community service providers. The ultimate purpose of the RtI process

is to enhance the success of students with a variety of academic

and/or behavior needs, rather than solely determine whether a

student qualifies for special education services. The effectiveness of

RtI is maximized through a collaborative problem-solving approach

to identify student needs and implement targeted interventions. Data

are utilized to measure student progress as a result of the instruction,

as well as to monitor intervention integrity.
