What is RTI?
Response to intervention (RTI) is a school process
used to determine if a student is responding to
classroom instruction and progressing as
expected. In RTI, a student who is struggling will
receive additional instructional support by
matching instruction to a student’s individual
needs through a multi-tiered instructional model.
Each tier provides instruction with increased
intensity. RTI focuses on the early prevention of
academic difficulty, particularly in the areas of
reading and math, by ensuring appropriate
instruction for all students, monitoring students’
progress, and providing additional levels of
instructional assistance (intervention) for
students who require support. RTI models
provide three tiers of support.
