Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-component, general education model which is designed to identify students who may be at risk for learning or behavioral challenges.
RTI is designed to accomplish three important goals:
- Ensure all students receive research-based instruction;
- Provide progress monitoring tools that will be utilized in making data-based decisions in terms of interventions and modifications; and
- Provide a more practical method of identifying students with special learning needs.
As educators, we endeavor to ensure that these goals are met daily through the collaboration of all stakeholders.
Pulaski County Special School District is committed to creating a tiered process for all students with academic and behavioral needs. The idea of RTI is to catch learners when they begin to struggle. This process, based on scientific research, will be a safety net for all at-risk learners; thereby assuring that all students achieve their maximum potential through collaborative, supportive and continuous efforts of all stakeholders.
For additional information about RTI, or for answers to any questions you might have about the process, please contact the building Response to Intervention Coordinator for your child’s school.
