What is RtI?

Response to Intervention or RtI can be defined as a school-wide, multi-tiered prevention framework that provides supplemental, needs-specific intervention to students with learning problems, most notably in the area of reading.   Key components of an RtI framework involve: (1) data driven assessment and problem-solving and tiered supports.  Data driven assessment and problem-solving occur at all levels of the framework and includes universal screening to determine risk status and progress monitoring to determine student response to supplemental intervention.  Tiered support or intervention increases in intensity based on student needs and progress.   RtI operates within a collaborative context that includes educators and families working together to promote academic student success.  For a comprehensive definition of RtI, its components, and NYS regulations click here.
