What is Response to Intervention?
RtI, or Response to Intervention, integrates assessment and intervention within a school-wide, multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and reduce behavior problems.  In other words, RtI allows schools to monitor and address your child’s learning and behavioral needs in real time in order to prevent poor learning outcomes. With RtI, schools identify students at risk for poor outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions, and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions based on whether students are making progress toward their end-of-year goals or need additional support. In addition, RtI may be used as part of the determination process for identifying students with specific learning disabilities or other disabilities
