Response to Intervention (RTI)

Response to intervention is a network of support intended to assist all students in their learning by providing increasing levels of intensive, research-proven instructional interventions targeted to the needs of the individual student. During the RTI process, student progress is monitored repeatedly in order to document how students respond to instruction.  That evidence is then used for data-based decision making relative to students’ educational programs.  “Response to Intervention (RTI) asks educators to take collective responsibility for each student’s learning and work collaboratively to ensure learning.”.(International Reading Association Commission on RTI, 2009). 

“The basic idea of RTI is to present good initial instruction, assess frequently, provide prompt assistance for struggling students to catch learning problems before they become more serious, and follow up relentlessly.  RTI also reflects the big ideas that drive the PLC process:  an intense focus on the learning of each student, a collaborative and collective effort to ensure learning, and ongoing analysis of evidence of each student’s learning to better meet his or her needs.  PLC and RTI are a perfect fit.” (DuFour and Marzano, 2011).

Foundational Principles of the Response to Intervention (RTI) Process 
1. Universal screening to identify struggling students. 
2. A multitier model of increasingly intensive educational interventions. 
3. Research-based curriculum in each tier. 
4. Frequent monitoring of each child’s performance related to benchmarks. 
5. Data-based decision making involving a collaborative team effort.
