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.

Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a school-wide, data-drive prevention model designed to maximize the impact of academic and behavioral instruction and intervention on student outcomes. Key components of an RtI/MTSS framework include data-based decision making and tiered instruction. This all-day PD session is a continuation of an initial training on RtI/MTSS presented in 2016 and will address: 1) the use of data to evaluate the impact of instruction and interventions across tiers, different demographic groups, and for the school as a whole; and (2) the use of a problem-solving process to develop implement, and evaluate instruction/intervention.
