Response to Intervention

All Title I Schools are committed to implementing all core principals of RTI

  • We can (and must) effectively teach all children
  • Intervene early
  • Use a multi-tier model of service delivery
  • Use a problem-solving methodology
  • Use research-based, scientifically validated interventions/instruction
  • Monitor student progress to inform instruction
  • Use data to make decisions
  • Use assessments for three different purposes: (1) screening; (2) diagnostics; and (3) progress monitoring

Under RTI, if a student is found to be performing well below peers, the school will:

1. Estimate the academic skill gap between the student and typically performing peers

2. Determine the likely reason(s) for the student’s depressed academic performance

3. Select a scientifically based intervention likely to improve the student's academic functioning and create a personal literacy plan designed to meet needs.

4. Monitor academic progress frequently to evaluate the impact of the intervention

5. If the student fails to respond to several well-implemented interventions, consider a referral to Special Education
