    What is RtI?
    Response to Intervention (RtI) is "the practice of providing 1) high-quality instruction/intervention matched to student needs and 2) using learning rate over time and level of performance to 3) make important educational decisions" (Batsche, et al., 2005). This means RtI is a school process used to determine if a student is responding to classroom instruction and progressing as expected according to other peers of the same grade. In an RtI process, students who are struggling receive additional instructional support provided by matching instruction to student need through a multi-tier instructional model. Each level, also known as a tier, provides instruction with increased intensity such as smaller groups or instructional time focused on specific areas.

    Our school also uses a tiered behavior support known as Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). For more information on PBIS, please click www.pbis.org.
