Response to Intervention (RTI)

Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-step approach to providing high quality instructional intervention matched to student needs. This general education service begins with providing high quality research based instruction in the classroom. Instruction is differentiated to match student need.

School wide screening using the NWEA: Measures of Academic Progress serves to identify students in grades K-5 not making adequate progress in reading. For students at risk, supplemental intervention is delivered using a multi-tiered format with increasing levels of intensity and targeted focus of instruction. Repeated assessments provide data for monitoring student progress and measuring the effectiveness of instructional strategies. This data driven decision making also applies to behavioral needs that impact learning.
